About Basho

We all want our kids to thrive, but modern, digital life doesn't always make that easy. Between cringy YouTube videos and online games, we are in a battle for their minds. I know how it is. I have three kids of my own and I struggle with screen time taking over the mental space and emotions in my home as well. It’s hard to instill strong values and help them develop when they’re lost in someone else's antics or video game. That’s why I created BASHO & FRIENDS -- family-friendly, hip hop inspired music videos and resources that just happen to teach new languages. Rooted in my bilingual teaching experience, I have been serving teachers, schools, and families with fun, learning videos that have amassed over 80,000 subscribers and 35 million YouTube views worldwide. I'm honored and grateful to be working with all of you parents, teachers, and kids.

Testimonials

What parents and teachers are saying

“Dear Basho! We finished your whole video curriculum! Thank you, thank you so much for making your series free to our family during this time. My girls loved it. This was their first time ever studying a language and you did a fabulous job introducing it. I can't say thank you enough. They are so excited about everything they learned and want to continue learning. What should we do next? We consider you our Spanish teacher :) ”

“I love Basho's videos because they are educational, fun, catchy, upbeat, and positive. The students always love listening to the songs because they're able to learn all the important basics of the Spanish language. They're always a fun addition to every lesson and it gets the kids up and moving which is super important in middle school. ”

“Our whole family enjoys listening to BASHO & FRIENDS. It’s something we can do together and I catch my son reciting lyrics all the time. He’s only 2 years old but every time one of Basho’s songs comes on, he proclaims “Basho!” like we’re on an episode of the game show “Name That Tune.” We can all sing along together and it’s refreshing to find some kids tunes that are educational AND adults can actually enjoy.”

“My pre-school aged kids absolutely love Basho and Friends! They listen to both the English and Spanish CD on repeat in the car, and always request to watch videos and songs on his YouTube channel. I am amazed at how much foreign language they have picked up. They are so inquisitive at this age, it’s the perfect time to expose them to other languages. The songs are so catchy and fun, we sing them constantly in our “Casa Loca”!”
