A Platform for Ethnically and Culturally Inspired Music
All Around This World
Department: Early childhood (infants to 9 year-olds)
United States
All Around This World is a unique, interactive global music and world cultures program for children 0-9 years old that encourages children and their families to explore the world by enjoying global music, rhythms, and movement. Jay Sand, guitarist and children's music teacher, world traveler, and dad of three girls, developed All Around This World with his girls as a way to introduce them to the countries he's already visited and the many more he plans to visit with them. Through CDs, concerts, and workshops, dynamic online classes, engaging homeschool and classroom lessons, "musical maps," and participatory parent-child music-making, Jay hopes to make the world a bit smaller one song at a time.
