A foundational text in music education, TEACHING KIDS TO SING, 2e delivers a developmental program of exercises and skills to help all students achieve confident, accurate, and expressive singing.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the new Second Edition includes a revision of the basic methodology, updated research on young singers, a separate new section on vocal physiology, contemporary music selections, and much more.
