About Kids Chant

This page hopes to open up Gregorian Chant to youngsters.

Gregorian chant is highly renowned for bringing peace and facilitating contemplation in the context of cloistered religious.

Children can sing chant too. Their pace is faster and sprightlier, but they can enjoy the chant melodies just like their parents.

Online Course

This website was inspired by years of teaching chant to homeschoolers. It explores ways of extending limited face to face time with online resources.
