This is a great video by Inside the Score about Nadia Boulanger, a remarkable French music teacher and conductor who raised a generation of composers in the 20th century. She came from a musical family and studied at the Conservatoire de Paris, where she won many prizes and awards for her compositions. However, she decided to stop composing at the age of 33, feeling that she lacked originality and genius. Instead, she devoted her life to teaching, sharing her knowledge and passion with more than 1,200 students from all over the world. Among her pupils were some of the most influential composers of the modern era, such as Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Philip Glass, Quincy Jones, and many others. She also taught soloists, arrangers, and conductors, and was the first woman to conduct many major orchestras in America and Europe. She had a rigorous and demanding approach to music education, emphasizing the importance of harmony, counterpoint, analysis, and ear training. She also exposed her students to a wide range of musical styles and genres, from Bach to Stravinsky. She was a respected and revered figure in the musical world, who left a lasting legacy on the development of classical music in the 20th century.
