Ted Talk: Benjamin Zander

Betsy sent me the link to this Ted talk. It’s a combination of TPRS and Scaffolding Literacy for music. Benjamin Zander tells us the story of what we’re going to hear. He explains the vocabulary of the music. He makes it comprehensible.

Here’s to our being able to create shining eyes and to moving from 4% to 100%.

(Okay…now I’m really off to Russia! Had a great time today with some fabulous, interesting, talented teachers in Fairbanks. Hope they enjoyed us as much as we did them.)
