Songs for Teen Boys and Young Men

Between the ages of 16 and 21, many boys decide to take up singing which can be a positive pastime with far-reaching benefits, that include social, physical, psychological, intellectual, musical and spiritual benefits. 

The vocal change process (which occurs for many boys between the ages of 11 and 15) can cause boys to feel self-conscious and ultimately turn them off singing. However, by the age of 16 most boys have achieved a degree of vocal stability. Although, it is still possible for there to be some transient difficulties.

Boys in the senior secondary years may find their identity among the musicians and the singing culture of the school, through jam sessions, garage bands, school choirs, school musicals, and song-writing. 

My experience teaching singing to boys over 30 years, has demonstrated that most boys grow in confidence and skill quickly when their classes include a combination of both group and individual singing. Boys also respond well to singing methods that are based on vocal function, the physical training of muscles, and knowledge of how the voice works.

Finding appealing and singable repertoire is another key factor for success.  So if you are a male who has just taken up singing or if you’re a singing teacher who works with boys, here is a list of more than 120 songs that have proved successful
