Songs for the classroom and much more besides!

We know from the brilliant Blue Planet series, narated by David Attenborough of the harm plastic can cause to our marine life, which is why the Musical produced by Annette McNelis is a must for inspiring young people to take the lead in protecting our planet. Something UNESCO are very keen to support.


During over 20 years working as a music educator, Annette McNelis has seen first-hand the power of using music to convey messages. The advertising industry has been doing this for years. Combining her musical experience and her passion for inspiring people to care more for their environment, Annette developed the Environment the Musical (ETM) classroom resource.

Whether it’s Don’t Drop Your Litter, The Volunteer Song or even Dog Pooh!, everyone will find a few favourites among the 8 catchy ETM songs.

ETM is an innovative, cross-curricular classroom resource with a difference. The songs and storyline provide material for school concerts, plays or a full musical production.

If you choose to do a musical production there is an expandable cast list. Plus, the need for props, costumes and ‘rubbish’ pieces for the fashion show scene provides lots of opportunity for creativity.


Environment the Musical gets children singing. It complements the work of Green Schools, TidyTowns initiatives and County Council public awareness campaigns.

For less confident singers, the Resource CD makes teaching the songs easy. For the experts, the song sheets are now available as downloadable PDFs.

This classroom resource is a real value-for-money investment for schools who see the value of learning through music.
