Beyond the Ways of the Tiger

This Asia Wall Street Journal interview clip of Lang Lang by Deborah Kan deals with the Asian Tiger Mom way of teaching.

Rather, he says that all people need to move beyond the “work” phase of learning and engage emotionally in their subjects if they are to truly become educated. Good teachers, mentors and parents can balance the two methods and manage the necessary transition.
