The use of music in environmental education (EE) can help to inform students through ideas incorporated in musical lyrics, while also enhancing interest in environmental topics. Music can also enhance perceptions of the value of the natural world, especially when nature itself is recognized as being musical. This article discusses historical and contemporary connections between music and nature, including musical sounds in nature, the fusion of natural sounds and anthropogenic music, and anthropogenic music inspired by nature, with an overarching theme of harnessing these topics to teach about the natural world and to inspire conservation values.
