This program is designed to help beginners learn the proper way to sing. It doesn’t really matter the age of the person using this book, as long as he or she is willing to start from the very beginning. One gentleman in his sixties purchased the entire series and commented later that he was having a great deal of fun catching up on things he never learned about singing (and music in general) as a child.
Although the songs are very short, there is a “teaching point” for each song to help the singer learn the foundational concepts. The program works well for homeschooled students because the parents can play audio songs to help the learning process. Students can sing along with the voice tracks until they know the songs and then with the accompaniment tracks only. Or you may prefer to use the Level I Piano Accompaniment Book to provide live accompaniment.
Private music teachers of other instruments often recommend this program for their students when they want them to learn singing and don’t have the time to teach it during an instrumental lesson. Many private school teachers use this program in small classes. They especially enjoy singing the rounds in two or even three parts when the students know the melodies well.
Levels I–III and the Christmas Made Easy courses include coloring sheets for every song. Teachers and parents have full permission to duplicate them to use with multiple children in their own homeschool or in one classroom at a school or homeschool co-op. (Contact Gena at [email protected] for a license to use with multiple classrooms.)
The song, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” may be sung in English and also in French. “Cuckoo” appears both in English and German, complete with a pronunciation guide for the foreign languages.
After learning all the songs by memory, students may enjoy presenting a short recital for family and friends. Use the accompaniment book or the instrumental tracks without the vocals for a rewarding performance!

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Marcia McCarry, Professional Voice Teacher. Over the course of 45 years, I’ve offered private training to over 4,000 students of all ages, from the child in pre-school to retired mature adults.
Some years ago I realized that I needed to create my own teaching materials. My love for teaching wasn’t enough. After years of searching, I had never found just the right materials to use in my studio. I knew that if my students of all ages were to learn to sing well that I would need to write my own program for my students, and I did!
Videos now included to make the course even easier!

"What a delightful course! From the start, the course was easy to implement and enjoyable for everyone. I particularly like the section on how to memorize a song because it aligns with my Charlotte Mason homeschool style."
~Shannan Swindler, homeschool mom and blogger at CaptivatingCompass.com
"I finally got around to trying Lesson 1 with my kids yesterday and it was BEAUTIFUL! We are all so excited about this." ~ Leah Hudson of Simple Home Blessings
See her review here, including a "before and after" of her daughter singing! Leah said this, "Besides the fact that she is adorable, we noticed she stood still, sang more clearly, and held notes in a more musical way after just one lesson!"
