This paper reports on the first year of investigation of a major longitudinal study into young children's singing development. A central focus during this first year was the design and piloting of a research protocol which would be valid for (a) a longitudinal sample of five-year-old children and (b) a comparative sample aged three to twelve years. The research instrument included specially-composed songs and a range of complementary pitch stimuli. Early results have provided an indication of five-year-olds' developing singing abilities and also offer an insight into the difficulties inherent in assessing young children's vocalisations within a changing school context.
