Thread Name: Can kids sing harmony?
Subject: RE: Can kids sing harmony?
sounds like your getting some good advice about how to start. Kids will surprise you! We had a choir of 15 singers about 9-16 years old, one concert they sang 5-6 different languages, including japanese. The japanese song was also a 3 part canon on the unison, 1 beat apart! Very difficult, but they did a super job. They always sounded great with two and three part songs.

Be careful what you pick for music, not too low, especially for young voices and not too high either. But, they will be able to sing higher than you think! if you encourage them properly. My wife worked with a lot of young singers in her teaching.
