This paper will attempt to present a method of dealing with the unsure singer which can be used by classroom teachers or the music specialist. The various activities outlined have proven somewhat successful in correcting this problem with the singing voilces of primary children. A paper or thesis could be written on the progress of individual children. However, it will be the intent here to present ways of handling the problem so that the average classroom teacher may work with the unsure singers. Host of the ideas have been tried out successfully with first and second grade classrooms in Eugene, Oregon.
