Singing with Santa Cruz County, California kids for over 30 years

 


You are a gifted musician who understands children so well. Thanks again for the joy your CDs have brought us!                                                  ~ Katy, Mom of  former KidSong student.


Freesia has the unusual ability to combine a high quality performance with the active participation of the children in the group.  This is a delight for children and adults alike. ~ Cherie Crandall,                                                                              Director of Neighborhood Childcare Center, Santa Cruz CA.
I have been honored to observe and participate with Freesia Raine as she:
     • conducted interactive trainings for childcare providers and early education teachers
     • enriched literacy development in Casa Pequena programs with her music curriculum
     • supported children in creating songs and performing for their families
     • helped children explore their feelings and fears through music
     • brought confidence to novice singers of all ages
     • shared her love of music
Her knowledge of children, creativity, and musical talent are an inspiration to me.
