Teaching Kindermusik classes in a studio setting requires a degree of proficiency in singing. The Vocal Review is how we assess that ability.

You will need to video record yourself singing:

  • Memorized
  • Unaccompanied, and
  • In the original key as written and recorded.

You may give yourself a starting pitch.

If you are applying to become a Kindermusik Accredited provider, you will need to sing "I See You" and "New River Train" and submit it as part of your application.

If you have been employed to teach Kindermusik classes, your employer will give you guidance on which songs are required.

International Students

Students who do not speak English as their first language may use the music during their vocal review and will follow directions given to them by their coaches as to what songs to prepare to sing.

Hear the songs and see the sheet music!

Learning and preparing these songs a capella will give you a good idea what it is like to prepare for a typical Kindermusik class each week. It will also help you understand how much time you will need to prepare and learn them correctly. Please sing in the same key as the sheet music is written. Treble voices will be in the range of C4 to E5, and Tenor/Bass voices will be in the range of C3 to E4.
