Hungry minds must be fed! And so, we proudly introduce our second volume of introductory sounds and words in español. As before, this album is specifically constructed for little ears, tongues, and brains... and, of course, the adults that come along with them!
It's simple, fun, repetitive, and... it works! These 'canciones' are perfectly crafted for a young child's critical period of language development and acquisition. Bilingual lyrics and translations are included, so sing along and have fun while you and your child 'hablan español' together!
Written by an educator-anthropologist-mother, and arranged by a world-renowned musician, Habla blah blah has created an organic approach to learning a foreign language for modern parents - children learn to say in *spanish* what would naturally come out of their mouth in their native tongue.
Amy Conroy is an Anthropologist, educator and mother of two young boys and a baby girl. Amy grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs in a typical mono-lingual English speaking environment. As an undergraduate at UCLA (B.A., Sociology 1994) she spent a semester immersed in Spanish at the University of Salamanca, Spain. By the time graduate school came along, Spanish had become a major part of Amyâs studies and a growing passion. While earning her Masters in Anthropology at San Francisco State University (M.A. 2000), she spent most of her non-classroom time polishing her Spanish speaking skills in the cities and jungles of Central America.
After Graduate school Amy went back to the roots of her own foreign language education and taught introductory Spanish to freshman and sophomore students at Mary Star of the Sea High School in San Pedro, California. She worked in the Anthropology department of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County attempting to bridge the hard science world to public education.
Shortly after the birth of her first child, she began researching and studying language acquisition of young children. Further linguistic and anthropological research clearly supported exposing your child young in a fun way, but finding the right teaching tools proved to be a challenge. In a quest to create appropriate teaching materials for mono-lingual families, Amy has created music and classes that guarantee childrenâs exposure to Spanish will come with laughs and smiles for the whole family.
Andy Kubiszewski comes to Habla blah blah with over 20 years of experience in the music industry. A world-renowned musician and composer, Andy has been an in-demand session drummer and percussionist, playing on thousands of TV and Radio commercials.
Andy spent most of the 80âs and 90âs as a drummer and songwriter for electronic Punk/new wave and alternative bands (including: Exotic Brids, Stabbing Westward and Nine Inch Nails). Highlights include; winning 2 Gold Records, touring with big acts like Dopeche Mode and The Culture Club, and playing drums on the critically acclaimed Nine Inch Nails album âThe Downward Spiralâ.
These days Andy is the music composer for numerous TV Shows including the popular Monster Garage, Axe Men, as well as contributing music composer to Monster House, Johnny Zero, Queer Eye for the Straight Girl, Smallville and Access Hollywood, and films The Faculty, Urban Legend, Not Another Teen Movie and The Crow: Salvation among others.
