Alfred Music Publishing, in collaboration with Guitars in the Classroom (GITC), proudly presents a new guitar songbook uniting environmental education or "eco-sustainability" with K-12 education across the curriculum, titled The Green Songbook. The book is authored by Jessica Baron, creator of the popular SmartStart Guitar series.The Green Songbook provides teachers with popular and fun inspirational songs about the environment that promote healthy lifestyles and eco-aware choices. Participating songwriters and artists include Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, Pete Seeger, the Banana Slug String Band, Tom Chapin, and many others.Whether you are looking for just the right song to sing around a campfire, teach a science lesson, celebrate nature, lead a social change discussion, or inspire good habits with children, you will find songs to love and share in this book. Each has been simply arranged in both standard and SmartStart ("Open G") tunings for beginning guitarists. The beautiful double play-along CDs make learning songs even easier.Songs are presented in nine distinct chapters that focus on important aspects of eco-sustainability. All begin with a special section written by renowned eco-experts giving teachers parents, and students valuable research information with links to remarkable resources and environmental organizations.Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has provided support through his foundation for teacher training with The Green Songbook. His nonprofit organization, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, established and supported through the profits of his touring act, funds projects in education, music and arts, and eco-sustainability."I am proud to be a part of this songbook,” states Johnson in the book. “Music is such a great way to bring people together; it has the ability to unite us. After years of visiting classrooms with my guitar I am always amazed with the energy of the students, their eagerness to sing along, and the power that a song has to teach a lesson.”Every copy of The Green Songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper, continuing Alfred’s pledge to support environmental conservation. Also, thanks to contributing artists, 5% of each book sale helps fund free teacher training programs.The Green Songbook book and CD (00-35434) is now available for $24.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
