I'm Jay Sand, musician, children's music teacher and very proud dad of three daughters. I live in Philadelphia where I teach All Around This World global music and world music classes to kids in my neighborhood, but because of this thing they call the Internet, I can teach classes to you and your kids around the U.S., in the UK, in Australia, India...anywhere!
All Around This World's core curriculum consists of 12 individual courses; 10 based in geography -- Africa, the Caribbean, East and Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Oceania and the Pacific Islands, South and Central Asia, West Asia and the Middle East, the U.S. and Canada, Western Europe -- and 2 that leap across international borders – "Everything is a Drum" and "Connecting the Dots." And, brand new!, "Scattered Among the Nations," introducing multicultural Jewish music from five continents. Each course introduces an average of 25 songs that originate from the region/s and 10 kid-friendly cultural experiences for all to enjoy.
Kids, infants to 9, will enjoy the live classes. the multimedia lessons in each course offer ample material for 5-9 years to use as a jumping-off point for 'round the clock learning.
All Around This World also offers LIVECAST classes that complement each Teachable course. Are you signed up for "Kids Explore Africa...?"

What real life parents of real life students are saying about All Around This World:
-- “For over the past 6 years it has become my priority to find the best classes for my daughter. I search high and low for the best classes, teachers, and workshops. My standards are extraordinarily high, and I take great pride in knowing that I have made the best selections for my child. . . All Around This World class is by far superior to ANY other class we have taken (musical or otherwise)! … All Around the World is Best of the Best!"
— “WOW! This is the best thing I have ever done for my son. He loves this class. Not only have we explored new music we sing in many different languages . . . Great bonding time with my son, a must do for your children.”
