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 a great education in Literacy?
She integrates the teaching of Literacy with Music and Movement, and Sing Into Reading is born! Hi, I'm Risa, and I teach Literacy through Music.
Currently I offer two memberships: "Sing Into Reading" for 2 - 4 year olds, and "Kindergarten Club" for 4 - 6 year olds. "Baby Music" is coming soon!
All classes feature an integrated curriculum.
Private classes are available to a limited number of students.
To see all classes, just click "Classes" at the top of this page.
