"My kids literally beg me to use L2L during our reading rotations!"
4th grade teacher in MN
These students had made an average gain of 5 WPM through the first 5 months of school. After an eight week intervention using L2L for 20 minutes per day, three to four days per week, their average improvement tripled. Results were submitted by 12 different homeroom teachers within the school.

"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."
Michael Farquharson Professor of Contemporary Writing and Production Berklee College of Music

My fourth graders and I love Lyrics2Learn! They love the beat and the rhythm, and I love that they're excited about working on their fluency... Itís a welcome change from the monotony of repeated reading. Many of the other fluency programs weíve tried lack this quality comprehension component.
Teachers, parents and kids were excited about this reading program, and the improvement results from Lyrics2learn were shown at the end of the year during testing.
Lyrics2learn is awesome! I didnít even know it was for reading. I thought it was just for fun and to hang with Mr. S.
When I first started Lyrics2learn, I was so excited because I never did something so fun! At first, I wasnít doing so good cuz I wasnít from here, but now Iím doing very good. I went from a bad start to a good finish.
I only had one student on Lyrics2learn, and she went from intensive to proficient! Iíll be using this activity with all of my students next year.
100% of my kids made benchmark, and over 60% of them doubled it when I used Lyrics2learn as a reading center every week.
Last week, I entered my team member's classroom to find every student in the class actively engaged in reading! I was stunned but really excited about the most powerful educational tool I've seen in a long time.
The students absolutely love L2L and most of them have already improved their reading level by more than a year.
My son loved the program while we did it. He had dyslexia and struggled with reading with all other programs except yours.
This year ALL of my students except one made growth in the double digits on their composite score for their EOG testing compared to where they were last year. For the grade level my class had the highest growth. I attribute their success to their use of L2L.
