If you love music, odds are you will love Robert Greenberg.

Greenberg describes music as “the best of what we are as human beings” – and you can learn much about it and some of its most accomplished composers, as I have, via his popular Great Courses.

In this interview, I had the opportunity to ask “Dr. Bob” about his own life's journey, as well as questions about history, great art, teaching, the determining factors in our lives, and much more.

Please enjoy this interview with the dynamic and articulate Robert Greenberg!
