Pedagogy for the 8-13 year old girl
Date: August 20, 2015
I am just starting to teach private voice lessons, and would like some advice. So far I have two students - one is 11 and the other about 8 years old. They are both girls who have interest in pop music but would like a classical foundation. I am classically trained but began singing in college... I am a little unsure as to how detailed I should be when it comes to all of the basic concepts - posture, breath, diction, etc. I already had my first lesson with the 11 year old and feel that I probably overwhelmed her. Any tips for making things seem easier than the actually are, or just keeping things simple?
Thanks so much,
5th year Music Education major
