School of Song and Arts [with tons of Science]


The XOEarth School of Song and Arts is a place – both in person and via live video – for youngsters, grownups, musicians and non-musicians to explore, create and record music, make art and produce videos that will help save our biosphere, humankind and other lifeforms.

Attending a tutoring session or class may be done online via Zoom, Facebook video chat, Skype, Facetime and other online platforms, and, at Stele’s ‘home school’ in South Boulder, at your house, and at the homes of other instructors.

Hello Earth, Life, Music and Art Lovers

My name is Stele Ely, and I am the founder and primary instructor at the XOEarth School of Song and Arts based in Boulder Colorado. This tutoring service and tiny school was started to help musicians and non-musicians create songs, art and media that inspire big climate change actions.

The mission of the XOEarth School of Song and Arts is to facilitate fun and productive journeys for any person that wants to write and perform their own ecological tunes, perform eco songs written by others, create eco art, create eco theater and more.

As an example, for songwriters, I [Stele] can help you write, polish and perform an eco love song, eco parody, environmental song and/or a future song.

If you want an instructor other than myself [Stele], I will be glad to connect you with one of my ecological music teacher associates or art teacher associates.

Myself and other instructors can also help you with your voice, guitar, keyboard, fiddle and other instrumental techniques. We will help you learn some cool music theory that will help you use that instrument to empower your lyrics.

We can help you record your song and a video so you can get it out there to help the world. We want to help your song, art and/or video inspire others, including your friends and family, to make choices and take big climate actions in their lives that will keep our Earth livable and cool.

We also promise to share your song or art via our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social networks. Of course, it’s great when you share your song or art with your friends and social networks too.

I can arrange single or multi day tutoring, classes and workshops that can come to you in person or online, at your college, your K-12 class or other group.

Whether you are a beginning or advanced musician or artist, we can help your inner Earth defender express itself for the planet’s sake.

Prices are generally on an hourly basis and go from $10 to $50 an hour depending on who the instructor is and the venue. Stele often does the first session for free.

To get started please email, text or call me [Stele] so I can help you get your songs or art out to the world, and have fun while we are at it.

For life, Stele Ely
