Julian Treasure: 5 ways to listen better

Absolutely brilliant and relevant to the musician.

So after watching it, it begs the question, how often do we, as music educators, teach listening to our students? What aspects of it do we teach? Do we stress it nearly enough? If there is one classroom on any school campus that should be teaching listening, shouldn't it be our classroom? And what kind of brilliant musicians would we have if they all actively listen on a regular basis.

There's lots of interesting discussion to be had on this topic. Glad I found this talk.
