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, and I teach Literacy through Music.
Currently I offer four memberships: "Baby Music" for non-walkers, "Preschool Program" for walkers under four, "Kindergarten Club" for four - six year olds, and "Adaptive Music" for teens and adults of all abilities who love children's music.
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.
