Teaching ideas

Why not introduce a second voice?!

Just hold singing -as a tenuta- the first note of every verse, throughout the entire verse.

The result, if we sing in A, sounds like this: E— E— B— A— / F#— E— F#— E— / B— A— A-E- A—

At first, sing this melodic line along with the children.

At the second verse continue singing this line, while playing the original melody on an instrument (piano, guitar, etc) .

When they are ready to keep this voice on their own, the teacher starts to sing the melody.

Now they are ready to be divided in order to sing in two voices!
