For Teachers, Parents, Group Leaders… anyone who works with children.
You can Sing Out For The Earth with your class or cohort, or children at home.
Sing Out For The Earth (SOFTE) is hosted by Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright of the Wilds, with Tom Arntzen. We have adapted our Voices Of Nature music program for distance and virtual learning. You can bring songs into your classroom or home for ecological education, and musical/physical breaks that make learning fun!
You can enjoy the program here for free or enhance your project and have a concert video created featuring your children... for more information go to the
VIRTUALLY LIVE! CONCERT package.
The program has two interconnected streams:
1. Sing Out For The Earth is Instructional. Create singing sessions to enliven learning each day. You’ll find things laid out step-by-step on the Song pages. Song Modules may consist of: a Live Concert Video featuring childrens’ choirs performing with the Wilds, or Performance Singalong Video; a Teaching Video with lyrics displayed where Holly sings a phrase and singers echo, to learn the melody; an Action Video for learning movements. In addition, there are Musical Activities such as Echo Singing and Body Percussion.
2. Voices Of Nature Rocks! is Educational (and comical). 20-minute videos explore the ecological science that informs song lyrics. Episode 1 supports The Watershed Song, and answers the question, What is a watershed? Episode 2 supports the song Mr. Douglas, and explores Douglas Fir forest habitat and organisms.
