Teaching by letting people do
acoustics here in Vienna. A crowd of tourists heardfine musicians play
Mozart while dressed in sort of silly period costumes.
It was really quite marvellous and way more fun than I had expected.
The conductor got the audience clapping under his direction during
several pieces. He let them do what they wanted to do - to applaud and
participate - and as a result he had the chance to teach them subtle
lessons about how to listen and how to take direction.
I wonder who I would lead better if I started by letting them do
something they want to do anyway.
