I thought I would share this video of a masterful talk by Benjamin Zander dealing with music and life and possibility and passion. It's inspiring.
Here is the link to the video.
Watching the video invokes the question of why we got into music in the first place. Sometimes other stuff gets in the way and we loose that vision, passion and purpose.
I like Zander's discussion of role the conductor as to waken possibility in other people. Zander asks who are we being and how many eyes are you (or ears) are you causing to shine?
Most of us here have a passion for music. It is something we all share with each other and moves us all. Hope you enjoy the video and let's discuss some of the points Zander makes.
What drove you to music in the first place and are you as passionate for music as you've always been?
