I teach voice lessons and I have started getting a lot of younger students. Any suggestions for good broadway songs for 14 and under? I am feeling unoriginal these days. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Oh im sure there are plenty out there. This sound unoriginal but most from the Sound of Music are good and other Roger's and Hammerstein's. When I was about 8 I loved Annie, The King and I, and Cinderella especially.

-Castle on a Cloud : Les Miserables
-One : A Chorus Line
-Popular : Wicked
-I'm Not That Girl : Wicked
-For Good : Wicked
-Reflections : Mulan (not Broadway)
-Learn Your Lessons Well : Godspell
-Bless the Lord My Soul : Godspell
-Tonight : West Side Story
-I Feel Pretty : West Side Story
-Think Of Me : The Phantom of the Opera
-Memory : Cats
-Diamonds Are a Girls Bestfriend : Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
-I Enjoy Being a Girl : Flower Drum Song
-Once Upon A Dream : Jekyll & Hyde
-Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again : The Phantom of the Opera
-Every Story is a Love Story : Aida
-My Strongest Suit : Aida
-Tomorrow : Annie
-Hard Knock Life : Annie

Hope that helped!

Ya, like Hil said, Rodgers and Hammerstein is a good bet. Also Disney songs would be good.
And then, do you know Monseiur Marius, I believe I was a little in love with you.

or check out those annoying "Broadway Kids" sing recordings. A 12 yr old can sing anything.

The Secret Garden would be a great for children's voices. Perhaps also Once Upon a Mattress and You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown if you're getting that young.
"I haven't got a pail." "Find your grail, your GRAIL!" "But it's not missing. It's right on the counter where it's supposed to- defying gravity, my giant cup's gone!" "Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes. How do you measure... measure a year?" "How many times do I have to tell you, it's five hundred twenty-five thousand, five hundred and eighty-five point thirty-two minutes. You will never graduate if you keep basing your math on showtunes." "You ruin Broadway for me." "As well I should."

Most of "The Music Man" songs are good for kids.

King and I songs are really fun for kids to sing. My little sister was in a production of it last year and she was happy to just "sing the fun songs", she didn't mind all the bowing she had to do. Anything from Sound of Music is also good.
