  Music. People. Planet.

GreenDreamz Song School is a place for youngsters, grownups, musicians and non-musicians to explore, create and record music for the benefit our biosphere, humankind and other critters.

GreenDreamz Song School believes that everyone who deeply loves this planet has a song inside that has the potential to help make our planet a better place. We want to help musicians and non-musicians find those songs, record the songs, and get those songs out to help inspire eco actions around the world.

GreenDreamz teachers offer tutoring, classes, workshops and shows to help lovers of the Earth develop their inner eco music potential via songwriting, instrument instruction (including guitar, keyboard and fiddle), voice and performance coaching.

GreenDreamz single or multi day tutoring, classes and workshops can come to you, your college, K-12 class or group.

Stele Ely, is the main teacher at GreenDreamz Song School in Boulder Colorado. So far, the Boulder school only has two instructors, Stele Ely and Chance Nblack.

If you are not in Boulder, contact us and we will try to find a green music teacher in your area that will tutor or start a class.


Stele Ely
GreenDreamz Teacher
Whether a person wants to help our planet by writing their own eco tunes or by performing the eco tunes written by others, GreenDreamz Song School aims to make it a reveling and magical journey.

For songwriters, we can help you get your creative eco muse on. Whether the song form is a love song, a life song, a pure environmental song and/or a future song, we want to help you write, polish and perform that world changing song that is inside of you.

Stele Ely and other instructors will help you learn to play that guitar, teach you some cool music theory that will make it all easier, and give you feedback when appropriate.

for the kid's classes.
We can also help you record your song -- and maybe do a video -- so you can get it out for the world, your friends and others to enjoy. We want to help your song -- or spoken word -- inspire at least two or three people, and maybe inspire thousands, to make choices and take actions in their lives that will make our Earth a better place.

So contact Stele Ely at
greentopia(et)yahoo(dat)com or call 3O3.818.5199 today so we can get that song that's in your heart out to the world -- and have fun while we are at it.

Notes:: Some Boulder Colorado classes are held at Stele's home on Stanford Ave. The little *recording studio* is in the living room. Inside and outside there are nice places to study music and write an eco tune that might help millions on our blue orb.

If you are not in the Boulder area, aspects of Stele's songwriting help and instruction can be done by phone, skype or email. Lessons can be taught at your place as well.

And even if you are non-musical, and you don't want to sing, and you don't want to perform, your spoken word with a music backdrop might work well too. Stele has helped numerous non-musicians manifest the beautiful words that were waiting inside. So non-musicians, give your inner GreenDreamz a chance, for the planet's sake.

Lesson fees include the GreenDreamz Songbook, chai tea and smoothies.

  Shows.

The GreenDreamz and GreenBeanz shows from Boulder are a lot of fun because they are part performance and part song school.

The same musicians may play in both shows. The GreenDreamz band does some songs that are a little more serious and classy. The GreenBeanz band does more songs that are funnier and good for the kids in all of us.

Sometimes the both bands play at the same time. Then it's like two shows in one because the GreenDreamz band performs first, then the band does a little costume change, and comes back as the GreenBeanz band for the next part way the show.

The GreenBeanz band plays tunes that go well for K-12 classrooms and events. The GreenDreamz + GreenBeanz shows in Boulder Co are put on by Stele, the GreenBeanz band of Boulder and other guest musicians.

GreenDreamz and GreenBeanz shows include a little bit of song school as the audience is invited to help write some of the lyrics of the songs played.

Shows will be announced on our Green Dreamz facebook page.

Contact Stele at 3O3.818.5199 or greentopia(et)yahoo(dat)com to schedule a show or for more info.

 Beanz.

GreenBeanz is the song school for young people (K-12) and is part of the GreenDreamz Song School.

GreenBeanz lessons can help young people (and adults) write and perform green songs that are good for the kid in all of us.

GreenBeanz is also the name of the band that performs for young people. These shows are put on by Stele, the GreenBeanz Band of Boulder, and other guest musicians. More about the GreenBeanz band is in Show section.

  Honor.

We want to honor every GreenDreamz Song School student that records and uploads their songs for the world to hear. So, we send a GreenDreamz Song School achievement letter to GreenDreamz Song School students who post a link to their uploaded song on GreenDreamz Song School facebook.

There are several good places online where students can upload songs. GreenDreamz Song School can help with those account setups and uploads.

Plus, every time a student posts a song to GreenDreamz Song School facebook, they get a chance to win EarthE Man's cape, cool stuff and even some $.
~~~~~~~~

GreenDreamz students are also encouraged to use their music to honor friends and businesses for their environmental choices and actions. Performing a song, sending a link to a song a student has recorded, or even improvising songs are good ways to thank someone for their eco actions.

Students can also challenge friends and others to take environmental actions then honor their successes with a song or even a little concert. >>

Check out VoxErth.net for some eco tunes to perform for a friend or a biz with a message saying, "here's a tune to thank you for your eco action(s)." EarthE.org has even more ways to use your GreenDreams music to honor others' eco actions.
