Teaching Kids to Sing

The Lutheran church is called the singing church, and we all share the responsibility to teach the next generation to sing the praises of the Lord. Whether you are a classroom teacher, Sunday school volunteer, parent, or grandparent, this session will equip you with joyful, play-based activities that teach the children in your life to sing beautifully. We’ll explore puppets and props, songs, games, and children’s books that help kids sing in tune. We’ll also review research about how children’s voices grow and develop so that you feel equipped to pick the right music for children at each age and stage of vocal development.
