For centuries important information has been memorized and passed on through songs and poetry. The idea that music can affect one’s body is not new. It has been found that music can influence the rhythm of breathing and, thus, relaxing the body, heighten awareness and mental receptivity.
Tune In to English can be used at the beginning of a class to create a relaxed atmosphere. It can also be used for self–instruction.

Uwe Kind is an international communicator having escaped from former East Germany to the West in 1960. As a German teacher at the New School in New York City, Mr. Kind developed SingLing, a language learning technique based on familiar tunes, which he later refined as a graduate student at Harvard University. Mr. Kind has since published four SingLing books which are used by students and teachers worldwide as a fun and effective way to learn conversational German, Spanish, or English (as a second language).
Now at language conferences, the hottest new product is LingoTech, created by Uwe Kind and composer Mark Schaffel. LingoTech is a very cool dance music that fuses melody, rhythm, drama, movement, and language phrases into a total experience that inspires young people.
LingoTech builds on the premise that music helps language students with memorization, intonation and pronunciation.
Although he now travels extensively to train teachers and to hold LingoTech concerts here and abroad, Mr. Kind makes his home in New York City. It is only a matter of time before we see what else he dreams up to contribute to world understanding.
