Lessons for Life - Season Six


Benjamin Zander’s classes Interpretations of Music: Lessons for Life are among the most extraordinary of all his musical activities. Delivered each month to a public audience in Boston, the classes feature Ben guiding highly accomplished young musicians towards more communicative and engaging interpretations of classical masterworks.

While excerpts of these classes have previously been available online to a very large audience, the Benjamin Zander Center is delighted to present, for the first time, full-length classes. We hope these will enable viewers throughout the world to experience the process of transformation that takes place over the duration of each class.

"The listener sees it and hears it and says, 'that's the way I want to lead my life'."
