Jay Sand of the award-winning All Around This World global music and cultures program for little kids and their grown-ups is now available for booking a concert for kids in your community and is eager to sing multicultural, multilingual songs with people, large and small, nationwide. Jay can bring energizing, participatory, family-friendly international music to your library, school, community festival, living room or summer camp through participatory educational shows that any child (or grown-up) can instantly enjoy.
Jay will happily tailor his presentation to meet your needs, but you can start by asking about any of these very special programs:
An entertaining and ingeniously educational concert for kids — so much fun your children won’t even know they’re learning! Jay and your kids will sing together, dance together and explore the world together in any concert venue, from the most intimate living room to the largest concert hall. During a typical concert Jay will perform songs from several continents that have lyrics in nearly a dozen languages. Do you want to meet a particular part of the world? Check out All Around This World’s musical regions and ask Jay to focus on your favorite. (each of these concerts for kids averages 40 minutes, great for infants-in-arms to 9 year-olds.)
Jay will join you, your friends and all your young children in your living room, community center, school or homeschool classroom for a one-of-a-kind participatory music class. Sing, dance and move around the room as you and your children meet the world through music. We can travel musically to any or all continents. Do you want to meet a particular part of the world? “The music and movement of South Asia?” “The many rhythms of Africa?” or should we focus on one country, culture or experience — “Learn to Dance the Ethiopian Eskista.” “How (and why) to dance a Maori Haka.” “Let’s have a Son Jorocho Fandango…!” Talk with Jay about your interests, ideas and needs. We can go ANYWHERE. Check out All Around This World’s musical regions and ask Jay to focus on your favorite. (each class is approximately 40 minutes, up to 15 families per class, classroom space permitting.)
SPECIAL FOR LIBRARIES, in tune with the 2018 collaborative summer reading theme, Libraries ROCK!” Jay’s “Libraries ROCK!” program is an interactive global music adventure that will inspire kids and their families to boldly explore the world by singing and dancing along to magnificent multilingual songs. All Around This World’s classes and concerts for kids average 40 minutes and are great for infants-in-arms to 9 year-olds.
