  3. I want to go and take all of his classes. There are teachers and great teachers and then there is Benjamen Zander!

  4. Dear Mr. Zander you make me to wish for a lottery ticket wining just to have you as my music teacher!

  5. I love how, by doing the "how fascinating" bit, he made it ok, right from the start for the boy to make mistakes. And instead of being bad things, they became punchlines.

  7. Is there anyway you can post the full video of Benjamin Zander's 2008 Pop!Tech presentation for use in a university "Leadership" course?
