Benjamin Zander on music and passion

Posted at 12:39 PM on February 7, 2012 by William Johnston

In this TED (Technology, Education, Design) Talk, Benjamin Zander discusses leadership, passion and classical music.

"I made up my mind... that classical music is for everyone... The music profession says that 3% of people like classical music. If we could only move it to 4%, our problems would be over... I say, how would you walk, how would you talk, how would you be if you thought [that] everybody loves classical music? They just haven't found out about it yet."
A powerful statement and a powerful presentation.
