Everyone sings. This means everyone knows some songs. Singing alone or with others can make us feel playful, help us through tough times, and bring us together. In this time of quarantine, when people around the world are staying home to keep others safe, many Italians’ nightly neighborhood song fests have brought people out on their balconies to sing together. In Italy many people live in homes with balconies, so singing together has been easy. In Chicago, 80’s pop music has proven popular to sing from the balconies. Some people are also turning to the Internet to sing along with others in virtual concerts. Families are singing together as well. Without music class, band, or orchestra, lots of young musicians are at home, so here are some tips to inspire some song collecting and singing—alone or with others.
