TED: Benjamin Zander – “Classical music is for everbody”

Leading composer and passionate classical music evangelist, Benjamin Zander, gives a typically charismatic, funny and inspiring talk on why classical music is for everybody – even if they haven’t realised it yet.

From one-buttock playing to getting from the B to the E in Chopin, he beautifully illustrates our untapped love for classical music and by extension the ability in everyone to embrace new experiences and possibilities in their life through playing.
