Loud and Proud

Amelia LOVES to sing. She wakes up singing and falls asleep singing. The songs she makes up are hysterical and we love that she is so passionate about making music. The one thing we would change is the volume.

She sings so loud it can at times hurt our ears. The worst part is she puts so much pressure on her throat that she looses her voice. We have been trying to teach her about her diaphragm and how to breath and sing from it but it hasn’t been clicking.

So, my new idea is to show her some videos of vocalists who sing loud and soft but when they sing soft they don’t tense up. Any suggestions?

    Personally I’d ask his godfather and godmother for some pointers. I know he sings and i’m pretty sure that she did too. As for artists???? Maybe try some Mariash or Whitney Houston. Carrie Underwood might be good too..

    Show her some Laurie Beckner… (sp?) If she likes silly stuff… Fresh Beat band… I know she’s GOT to love that…
    Ian’s into singing now and his FAVORITE song is the FINGER song… “Mommy finger, mommy finger where are you?… etc…” and it goes through the entire family… It used to be Pointer finger and such when I was little… Oh how times have changed… LOL…
    I love listening to him sing… His voice is so CUTE… And he’s JUST getting confident to sing more and more…
    And when HE wants you to sing w/ him he’ll sing LOUD… I JUST figured that out today… He kept getting louder and louder in the car… Finally he said, “That means SING WITH ME MOM…” I had to laugh… And so I had to sing the finger song… 5 times… But I can ONLY sing “Baby finger, Baby finer where are you?” since he’s my baby… LOL…
    Good luck on the VOLUME control…

        We JUST got Nick Jr., so Ian has just discovered a lot of them… But he’s really LOVING music lately…
        I bet these 2 would have a BLAST together…
        If you’re EVER back on the East Coast of Florida, you’ll have to let me know…
        These 2 have to meet… We’d have our hands full for the day I’m sure… But I think they’d have a BLAST together!!!
