Chapter Objective : One of the most basic yet challenging activities to do with children is to teach them a song. Adults sing in much lower range than children, therefore pitching a song too low causes children to be unsuccessful at reaching some of the lower notes. After a while, they will give up trying to reach the material altogether. One good habit to help children sing well is to ask them sing in their head voice rather than their chest voice. Chest voice feels like the sound is emanating from the chest, which tends to create a lot of tension in the throat, particularly in younger singers. The head voice is lighter, more tension-free, and more natural and therefore more beautiful sounding. While they may be able to hit higher or lower notes, these few notes are where they can sing the loudest and most comfortably.

More fun for kids
If you haven't heard much from me lately it's because I have been engulfed in a digital haze while surfing the web for videos of kids singing pop song covers. Thanks to the one-two combination of reality talent shows and social media, there are zillions of these videos available. The vast majority are just cutesy versions of kids singing, posted to the delight of grandparents everywhere. Some of them take it up a notch and are quite good. But then there's the small number of videos — like the one above — the kids start singing and you're just blown away. This is the list that we've compiled for you today. These are the kids whose voices are so good you just can't stop listening. You get the picture. Prepare to be amazed, folks. Tryzdin Grubbs singing 'Hello'.
Children’s Vocal Ranges
Singing songs with your kids is a great way to pass the time while also staying connected. What are good songs to sing to a baby? How about songs for older kids? You can sing along to a song, go a capella in front of their crib, or each take up a verse. Singing will help you bond with your kids and maybe make some of those nursery songs a little less annoying, so you better start practicing your Do-Re-Mis. This list contains songs that are fun for both you and the kids; some even provide an opportunity for a great learning experience. You sing them. Maybe if you sing this song enough for your kids, their brains will absorb it? You could also sing it backward to test your brainpower.
