Here it comes. Can you hear it? All aboard the Rainbow Train, rolling down the
rainbow track! Hop on! Get ready for the musical journey through the seven colours
of the rainbow spectrum. Listen, play, dance and sing along with your children
as they discover this magical musical suite of songs.
The Rainbow Train is a new CD of original songs emerging from the pioneering
and highly successful school of music and dance education for children called
Talking Hands Talking Feet based in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Its founders, Paul
and Melanie Zeir, are motivated and inspired by the concept of human development
theatre and their vision is to create an academy for new template arts and education.
The Rainbow Train offers a multi-layered education through music and song
using the natures of the seven colours of the rainbow. The music uses the rainbow
sequence as a vehicle of offering wholesome vitamins and values that appeal
to the inner life of children. The songs and music promote understandings and
interest in the human body, the cycles of life, working together, as well as
offering action songs, memory chain songs and a song of thanks. Talking Hands
Talking Feet music and dance education is designed to stimulate values and
understanding to the developing child.
The Rainbow Train CD was produced in Little Anguilla Studios in New York and
brought together musicians and singers who all share a belief in the power of
art to enhance and liberate the innate potential of children.
The evidence for this comes shining through every one of these songs. It is
being recognised and acclaimed by parents and teachers alike and has recently
won an award by the prestigious Parents' Choice Foundation in the USA. A further
success has been the use of the Rainbow Train as an English teaching aid in
bilingual schools in Israel and America. The songs are written for children
between the ages of two and seven, but much of their content will delight people
of all ages.
Talking Hands Talking Feet donates CDs to new template education endeavours
in America and in Israel with the belief and hope that "Together, we make
a brighter light!"
