    Appreciate if you could ask about it. Yes, it's not distressing, she is doing it with fun, as all other exercises with this coach, but it's not just one time exercise to identify the range, it's usual exercise that they do on each lesson. They do many other exercises as well but this one worries me the most. Especially after that i heard that it can damage the young chords if to continue this way.

    Yes, teacher is doing it each time trying to make her get it higher and higher. I wouldn't say she is getting bored, she likes it, she likes all kind of singing lessons and exercises. At least now, may be later she would get bored from all this. But I am in doubts, if it's good for young child? I am sure that the coach is not intending to harm, she loves her students, but may be she just doesn't know what consequences can be later?

    Well - that is a valid technique with adults to get the voice moving. I can't personally see it doing any damage from the perspective of singing later in her life, but I guess few doctors - the only medical opinions that count - know anything about how singing impacts on developing structures. My own experience of Doctors and singers and dancers is that few understand it properly. I do know that we have specialists who treat adult singers - usually when they've damaged things, but I've never come across a singing child specialist. I do know that if my child enjoyed what they were doing, I'd just keep and eye on it and let them carry on.

    I'm quite aware of drummer's hearing loss, and I let my son have lessons from the age of 12 or so, with no damage I can determine.
