Pete Seeger: If I Had a Song
Wright, Susan
Teaching Music, v18 n3 p28-30 Nov 2010
Songwriter, political activist, ethnomusicologist, gardener, singer, environmentalist, storyteller, woodcutter, history buff, cookieholic...Pete Seeger is all these and more. One has probably heard his name before, and maybe one can attach it to certain songs or political movements. Seeger is 91 years old and keeps active singing, writing songs, organizing events in his community, and writing songbooks and letters. He cuts wood to heat the house where he lives with Toshi Seeger, his wife of 66 years. He also visits the school where the author teaches music, and shares the gift of his lifelong contemplations and many songs with the author's elementary students. This article presents an interview with Seeger about music education.
