Abstract

his chapter will deal with the knowledge of children’s voice training in the school context. Different types and models of knowledge domains and teaching concepts will be discussed. Three models will be used in order to analyse the types of knowledge that vocal pedagogy with children implies. Models are “a way to express systematic thinking and understanding in science, arts, and education” (Lock, 2017, p. 28, emphasis in original).

It allows us to gain an overview of the investigated phenomenon. This way, it will be possible to engage in systematic discussions. In the case of this chapter, the different levels of knowledge that are required for singing with children.
