"As public funds for the arts are decreasing and school systems across the country are cutting arts education, along comes L2L with an amazing concept that teaches children to read with music and rhyme. Not only are students engaged and motivated to learn how to read, but they are exposed to several styles of music."

George W. Russell Jr.
Professor of Harmony
Berklee College of Music

"As an educator, professor, and perhaps, most importantly a parent of two young elementary school kids, I am pleased to be a part of Lyrics2Learn and to endorse the program. The combination of creative, well produced contemporary music, with thoughtful and effective lyrics is, without a doubt, a compelling way to deliver content at the highest level. I have no doubt L2L is, and can be, a program that will be of benefit to individuals and large school systems alike."
