Benjamin Zander on music and passion | Video on TED.com If you watch only one of the videos posted on this blog, it should be this one. Particularly pertinent to the Suzuki experience (specifically to the importance of practicing reviews) is Zander's discussion in the first few minutes about how a child's performance of a piece evolves as he matures musically. That evolution only happens, however, if the child continues to practice (i.e. review) the piece over the course of several years. But the whole video is great, and very entertaining.
