Jay Sand -- All Around This World

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 cultures classes to children in my neighborhood. Because of this thing they call the Internet, I can also teach you and your kids anywhere!

"Kids Explore East and Southeast Asia" takes us on a tour that starts in China and primarily works its way down the East Asian coast. In our lessons we visit:

— China: we start the New Year off right by dancing like both lions and dragons

— Hong Kong and Taiwan: we take this opportunity to exeperience the ancient and duly respected cultural art-form–the kung fu movie. Ya!

— Japan: not only do we sing karaoke but we get to do an Okinawan bon odori dance.

— The Koreas: we give thanks to the full moon by dancing like turtles during the ganggangsullae.

— Vietnam: we harvest the children like rice.

— Thailand: we float our cares, our imaginary candles and our (equally imaginary) fingernail clippings down the river during Loy Krathong.

— Myanmar: we live a day in the life of a monk.

— Malaysia: we play sepak takraw, one of the world’s most acrobatic “keepie uppies”

— The Philippines: we take out our long poles and prance like birds as we dance tinikling

— Indonesia: we gong along to glorious gamelan.

All Around This World courses on Teachable essentially operate on a pay-what-you-can basis. Discounts and scholarshiops are available! Check out the pricing secton below for details. Bottom line: if you want to sing with me, we'll make it happen.
