Mammals: A Musical Field Journal is a Musical Headwaters original songbook for the album, Through the Mountains by the Grammy© Award-winning trio Time for Three. With illustrations by Max Conway, the songbook combines Earth Science, Ecology, Language Arts, and the Visual and Performing Arts. A truly multi-media experience, the songbook and album deepen the capacity for environmental stewardship via the arts.
Musical Headwaters brings the country's most innovative musicians and composers to the Sierra Valley to compose and perform original works inspired by the Sierras. These new musical works, written for children, bridge nature-based education with the visual and performing arts to promote land stewardship, honor cultural heritage, elevate local artistry, and deepen civic pride in the region. A Musical Field Journal incorporates visual and performing arts alongside science standards and local ecology factoids for students of all ages. The songbook uses visual & performing arts to tap into students' emotional connection to nature to foster their stewardship of local wildlife. Mammals: A Musical Field Journal uses the inspiring lyrics written by Time for Three. The piece "Through the Mountains" is an immersive album that takes the listener on the journey of mammals through the Sierra Nevadas. With the wisdom imparted to their offspring, mammals provide a timely perspective on life and trials in the modern world. This timeless story comes to life through the stunning illustrations of Max Conway. Creatively compiled by Emily Meyer, this book is truly one of a kind and will become kin to anyone who possesses it.
