My methods of singing teaching are informed mainly by Estil principles. My teaching philosophy is that lessons should be guided by the student. E.g. how do we stand best to support our breathing, learning music theory using lego or chalk, and talking about what songs mean for us personally and where they stand in history, for example American pie and the changing face of popular music.
With younger kids 4-8 the emphasis in on vocalising safely in a fun space and learning communication through music
