Benjamin Zander: The Transformative Power of Classical Music

Benjamin Zander TED Talk

One of my favorite TED talks. Don’t let the title fool you, it relates to all the arts and to teaching in general. The part that really hits home is how he relates student understanding/inspiration to “sparkly eyes”. You’ll know what I mean when you see that part. Plus, he’s a very engaging speaker.
