SONGS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

As the voice teacher of some very young children, it can sometimes get tricky finding songs that suit their vocal range with lyrics that they can relate to.  I also always consider the length of the song, the level of difficulty for pronouncing the words, the mood and tempo, and whether it appeals to the child.

Here’s a short list of songs that I’ve found children as young as 4 years old can manage.  I intend to keep this list growing as I continue my search for the perfect songs for young children (apart from my favourite folk tunes, of course!)

SONGS FOR VERY YOUNG BEGINNERS IN SINGING

  1. Castle on A Cloud (from Les Miserables)
  2. The Second Star to the Right (from Peter Pan)
  3. Octopus’s Garden (short version from the Trinity Rock & Pop Initial Exams Book)
  4. Here Comes the Sun (short version from the Trinity Rock & Pop Initial Exams Book)
  5. Edelweiss (from the Sound of Music)
