Be confident singing lullabies to your baby!

Thursday 11th July 2024, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

Whether out of self-consciousness or simply not knowing WHAT to sing, many caretakers are not comfortable singing to the babies in their care. Research has shown this is a crucial aspect of a child’s development, as well as an important step in building a connection between parent and child. But people worry about the quality of their voice, embarrassed and unsure if their child is secretly judging them. Of course they’re not! The connection built by singing to your child goes beyond skill, but having some confidence would help.

This presentation talks about ways to help people feel comfortable using their voices to connect with the children in their world. Carissa Scroggins will share what she learned from an online lullaby workshop she hosted in May, tools on teaching group voice lessons, specific repertoire to use (there are many songs out there to choose from, not just Brahms’ well-loved tune or a delightful ditty from Bluey), and ways to boost inexperienced voices forward on their singing journeys.
