Kindermusik University Vocal Review

A required accreditation assessment of your singing ability

What is a vocal review?

Teaching Kindermusik classes in a studio setting requires a degree of proficiency in singing. The Vocal Review is how we assess that ability. It is directly related to acquiring the designation of Accredited Kindermusik Educator, and the option to offer Kindermuisk’s studio curricula within your teaching environment.

An Accredited Kindermusik Educator sings and leads her class.

How do I complete and submit my vocal review?

You will need to video record yourself (via laptop or smartphone) singing a designated song, which is

Memorized

Unaccompanied, and

In the original key as written and recorded.

What about non-English-speaking or 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.

How do I prepare for my vocal review?

Listen to the songs and read the sheet music first. This will give you a good idea of the time and effort that goes into preparing for a typical Kindermusik class each week.

Note that you will 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.

Which songs do I have to sing?

If you are applying to become a Kindermusik Accredited Educator, 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.
