#beginquote# First off, I do use a pitch pipe, second, there is no church organist available and third the children are so used to listening to cd's and other recordings that they are still singing in their chest voices when I move to my own range. The problem that I am faced with is that I have nonmusicians telling me that what I am doing is wrong and I need documentation to prove that by my singing in my upper register that this is in fact the way to get the students K-5 out of the basement so that they do not damage their voices ... although I am already hearing some damage but due to the fact that I am feeling like my head is almost on the chopping block, I cannot go in to detail or expose any of this to anyone. It kills me to not be able to do the job I was hired to do since there are so many closeminded, people that think that I know nothing of what I am doing and claim to know better. Are there any websites where I can get definitive proof that as a male, singing in the children's range that I am not harming them but in fact helping them to develop better? #endquote#
