Leonard Bernstein: Teachers & Teaching (1988)


Leonard Bernstein [1918–1990]: Teachers and Teaching: An Autobiographical Essay by Leonard Bernstein. Learning and teaching are similar words in both German and in Yiddish, thus Bernstein says they are interchangeable. “When I teach I learn; when I learn I teach,” he says rather convincingly. Unfortunately, most teachers fail to understand this essential dictum, and thus they also fail as teachers and probably as humane human beings. Watch the full video. It is a delight, and it is only 57 minutes.
