Voice Training Is About Communication
As a vocal coach, I work with a lot of kids from 2nd graders on up. Much of this is with children’s choirs, but a surprising number of our new private students are homeschoolers. Parents are recognizing that for a student of any age to learn about their voice is a very valuable pursuit. Why? Because, Voice training is about communication! And being a confident, clear communicator will help a child excel in any future vocation. In many pursuits, communication is absolutely necessary.
Teaching (Homeschool) Kids to Sing (And Speak!)
We originally developed our Teaching Kids To Sing (TKS) series with the children’s choir and traditional classroom in mind. But we are excited to see that TKS has become a huge hit with homeschool families. We are proud of every report we hear from parent telling us how TKS is helping their kids learn how to properly use their voice.
Our goal is to teach children about their voices. Then, to help them experience what good posture, warm-ups, tone, diction and meaningful dynamics feel and sound like—all while having fun. Not surprisingly, parents are learning as much as the students and it has become a great family-learning experience in many homes due to the clear layout and interactive format.
We Are Here to Help You Along the Way
We have a special page on our website just for Homeschoolers! Just go to vocalcoach.com/homeschool. We have lots of information about how to use our Vocal Coach products in a homeschool environment, answers to common questions, and even an exam and answer key in PDF format for download.
Face to Face Online Training
It’s also worth noting that our Face to Face Online Training is great for group learning and can really be a good cap to a semester of vocal training. After working with our teaching tools with your student(s), you may want to solidify what they’ve learned in a personal way. I’d love to meet you for an online session via Skype or FaceTime.
Whether you have one or five students or even a larger homeschool group, and on line session can offer spontaneous, interactive teaching and inspiration. You’ll be surprised how much progress can be made in a single session when the students are already familiar with the fundamental from our training CDs.
To make this experience more available for this summer or for the start of school this fall we are offer our 2DVD/1CD Teaching Kids To Sing package for a special price. Please go to your store and explore the Teaching Kids To Sing section.
And as always, if you have any questions along the way just go to my blog. There is a wealth of knowledge already there, and you can submit a question directly to me using the Ask the Vocal Coach form. I look forward to hearing from you!
