Read about Risa.


I regularly lead keynotes and workshops at conferences, as well as speaking engagements and professional development at schools, libraries, and events.

Music and Movement

All my classes incorporate music and movement. This gives our kinesthetic and musical learners an avenue into literacy. Music and movement trigger every part of the brain, including memory, insuring that these experiences are memorable and meaningful.


This is "I love you" in ASL
(American Sign Language).

Love is the driving force behind my work. Do all things with love.


"Thank you, Risa. I was a Kindermusik educator for 20 years, so I have a good variety of songs...but love more and fresh ideas. I have my favorite back pocket oldies but goodies. BUT, new ideas are always welcome. I am back to teaching in the classroom now, and still LOVE music, but am not doing just that. When you talked about adding the literacy component in your training, I felt like that was the missing piece for me that was needed. We do a "journal" reading, but it just didn't fit who I was. I think doing the music is doing the same thing...but adding an element of what was really missing and what I know is SO good for the classroom and kids. THANK YOU! The kids are LOVING Peter Rabbit. :)"

"Risa, is that look you in the eye kind of musical master that makes not only the children mesmerized but parents tapping their toes in their shoes as they watch the kids hold onto her words and rhythm....only to find yourself singing and humming long after the lesson or show"

"Risa Cohen is a talented musician and vocalist. She is kind, caring and has a natural way of connecting with children. I have seen firsthand the way my children and their classmates hang on her every word and note. Risa is an exemplary teacher and outstanding individual!"
