Teach Your Children

Music by Graham Nash

Originally Performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

"Teach Your Children" is a song by Graham Nash. Although it was written when Nash was a member of the Hollies, it was never recorded by that group in studio (although a live recording does exist), and first appeared on the album Déjà Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released in 1970. The recording features Jerry Garcia on steel guitar. Garcia did not know how to play the steel guitar. He told Lon Goddard of the British music newspaper Record Mirror in an interview, that he recorded a series of pieces on the steel guitar and spliced them together in the studio to create the backing and solo. Garcia had made an arrangement that in return for his playing steel guitar on "Teach Your Children," CSNY would teach the members of the Grateful Dead how to sing harmony for their upcoming albums, Workingman's Dead and American Beauty. Released as a single, the song peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts that year. On the Easy Listening chart, "Teach Your Children" peaked at #28. In Canada, "Teach Your Children" reached number 8.

Various Arrangers : Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young A Cappella

Here is the 1970 pop hit by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young "Teach Your Children" in an a cappella setting that is fresh and unique! Rhythmically free and expansive, the melody harmonized in triads is juxtaposed against long accompanying vocal lines to highlight the powerful message inherent in the text. The Crosby, Stills and Nash song from their debut 1969 album "Helplessly Hoping" translates perfectly to the signature vocal style of the King's Singers. "After The Gold Rush" is the haunting song by Neil Young in a richly expressive a cappella setting. Audiences love these pop classics and great for the parents to sing along with.
