Working With Children’s Voices:

Fostering Healthy Singing and Independent Musicianship in Children’s Choirs


Ms. Rachel Parfenchuk

Children's Choir

Geared towards the children's choir director, “Working With Children’s Voices” will provide a basic overview of the changing adolescent voice with specific considerations regarding vocal range, part assignments, and general vocal faults during the stages of vocal development. This presentation will also provide practical warm-up and rehearsal techniques to encourage independent musicianship within the choir, while staying sensitive to the challenges of the adolescent singer.
