Teaching Kids To Sing

I have always loved to sing.  I have very early childhood memories of singing in church and at family gatherings.  Singing is a significant part of who I am.  Singing has been a valuable part of my development. It helped shape my personality as a young person and allowed me to have many valuable experiences that helped shape the adult that I have become.

I am very excited about a curriculum resource that is helping me teach my kids how to sing and do it well.  It is called Teaching Kids To Sing by Vocal Coach.
Description of Teaching Kids To Sing (below in red) from their website:

We are using this program in our homeschool and it is adding a fun way to learn vocal techniques.  It brings back a lot of memories of voice lessons I took as a young person.  I am looking forward to 
visiting nursing homes and singing these songs and using the techniques the kids have learned using this program. 

We have almost finished the first DVD and will be learning with the second DVD soon.  I can already see and hear the progress they have made. They enjoy singing these songs and doing the fun gestures that go along with them.

Check out the video below of my kids singing (without accompaniment) one of the songs they learned from Vol. 1 DVD  about learning to stand up tall when they sing:
