Singing for Children

From the moment of birth, babies play with the sound of their own voice, immersing themselves in ‘states of enchantment’ that bring joy and profound peace.

As the years pass, language develops, along with intonation; this opens up the possibility of organised singing which, if adequately pursued, may become the means by which the child can continue to find a sense of well-being, joy, and a wide-ranging holistic formation. Through singing, children form not only their voice, but also their ear, their co-ordination, their linguistic ariticulation, sensitivity to beauty, sense of rhythm, awareness of belonging to a group, as well as sense of discipline.

Well-focused singing is therefore a truly excellent way of establishing a deeper relationship with both the self and others, by developing a crucial capacity in the children of today: that of listening. Not just listening projected outside, but also and above all directed inside. Through singing, a source of delight and fun, children learn to perceive the vibrations of their own voice, the role of the ear in the production of sound, the inner world where resonances and the flow of breathing are developed, along with many other aspects linked to the voice-body relationship or other qualities of vocal sound.
There are significant benefits from this type of work at the level of increased calm, focus, perceptive sensitivity and concentration, which lead to a remarkable enrichment of children’s overall development.

“Singing, and above all singing in a group(…), is what simultaneously promotes the development of two qualities that our society, poisoned by consumerism and its attendant lack of love for life, all too often considers to be polar opposites: the individual self and the social self”
(B. Streito)
