Paul Andrew Zeir has spent most of his life gathering and composing songs from all over the world. His mission, along with his gifted partner Melanie, is to instill in young people the natural gift of music and dance as integrated development and connective media for an evolving human life. Talking Hands Talking Feet® is part of an emerging new template in children's music and dance education. Our belief is that music and dance can be used as vehicles to bring out and enhance the quality and character of each human life in development. Our aim is to give children the tools to be able to express themselves in the language of music, song and dance whilst fostering their self-confidence, enthusiasm and instinct for learning about themselves, their bodies, the world and the planetary environment. The produce generated from this process is prodigious and prolific, and includes an exciting multi-dimensional curriculum, original songs, story dances, musical suites, and dance choreography. This includes our first compilation of children's music, the Rainbow Train CD, winner of the Parent's Choice Award, and our second compilation, newly released, Do Re Mi Dragon. (Reviews -) School Library Journal Magazine May 2002: 'This album has the potential to be very useful in the hands of creative teachers and librarians' - Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX Donna Cheftel from Katonah, NY Firstly, the children love it! And so do I! This is such fun and so catchy you just can't help but sing along. The great part of this CD is the way the music goes along to each color like a musical expression of color - what a great idea! And so creative. Peg Simon from Seattle, WA And you will be, too, singing along with spirit, once you listen to the words and feel the happy rhythms! I put it on all the time. It lights up the house with happiness, and there's warm reflective tunes as well. The poet in me says it's a celebration of being alive on the planet, and truly it's a child's discovery journey of everything from the seasons to the magic of planting a seed in the ground, to the wonder of discovering yourself. If you're an adult, you owe it to yourself to listen to 'Born on a Mountain' or 'Sparks.' A music fan from Manhattan, NY A rare find! This is filled with tunes to sing and dance to, and it has already eclipsed all our other CD's as family favorites! Mimobouli from Düsseldorf, Germany Inspiring educational product! Refreshing, inspiring work! Children I work with love the tunes. It is very a very good introduction to color for children (one of their favorite subjects). Frederica from Italy My children really fell in love with it and they don't speak English!! This is an extraordinary tool to teach them, not just English but many inestimable things.
