This is a short post. I came across this interview with Benjamin Zander for the School Band & Orchestramagazine (Dec. 2010), and I wanted to share it with others. Zander is the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the New England Conservatory Youth Orchestra. He is also the artistic director at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts (Natick, Mass.). I think he is a great educator.

I have also posted in this blog a great video with one of his presentations on music and passion. The posting can be found at
