How we used Teaching Kids To Sing
The first time the kids watched the DVDs I was making dinner, I could hear them in there getting into it. They have never been shy singers (unlike me) so they were not quiet. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed it the most I think, I heard her telling a friend she is getting singing lessons at home and she was very proud.
I have noticed them standing up straighter (posture), and doing warm ups in the van on the way to church. I believe they have more confidence, and my daughter is starting to develop better tone. My kids have always enjoyed learning things through song, and these songs help them remember what they are learning.
I joined the choir for the Christmas Cantata for the first time this year, I am ok singing in a group just not by myself. Yet. I'm working on that! So I started doing the lessons with the kids and have learned a few things myself from the program. This program was designed for use by elementary students, ages 5-6th grade. They do offer programs for adults as well, like Vocal Coach Singer which was reviewed by members of The Schoolhouse Crew. Click the banner below to read their reviews!
