Abstract

This study explores the validity and reliability of the Singing Vocal Development Measure (SVDM) by Joanne Rutkowski with Portuguese children. The purpose of this study was to investigate the nature of the relationship between Portuguese children’s use of the singing voice (vocal register), singing accuracy, tonal aptitude and self-perception on singing with text and a neutral syllable among kindergarten to fourth-graders.
Children aged 4 to 9 (N=137) attending a private school in Lisbon and belonging to families with medium/high income levels participated in this study. In January and June, the children were administered the SVDM individually and the Intermediate Measures of Music Audiation in a group setting by the music teacher. Three raters evaluated the randomized recording of the children’s singing, both for the use of their singing voice and vocal accuracy for each pitch on each pattern. This study also replicates data analysis used by Rutkowski in recent research.
