Sing Into Reading offers group classes and private classes
What happens when a singer/dancer/actor realizes that she is really meant to be a teacher? What happens after she gets an M.S.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and a ton of training in Literacy?
She integrates the teaching of Literacy with Music and Movement, and Sing Into Reading is born!
Hi, I'm Risa, a passionate progressive educator, and I teach Literacy through Music.
Currently I offer three memberships: "Baby Music" for non-walkers, "Preschool Program," for kids under five, and "Rockin Readers" for kids four - eight.
All classes feature an integrated curriculum teaching literacy through music and movement.
Private classes are available to a limited number of students.
To see all classes, just click "Classes" at the top of this page. And if you would like a free class, just email me. I love teaching, and I promise you will love singing, dancing, learning, and loving with your child.
