With a master’s degree in child psychology, Jack was working with autistic children by day but still playing gigs many nights as a trained musician. When he unexpectedly transitioned to a new job in teaching, he not only met his future wife, Lisa, but she also inspired him with the idea to blend his love of music with his love of teaching. And the rest is still in the making… especially here on his unbelievably successful YouTube channel Jack Hartmann Kids Music Channel, where over 1.8 million subscribers access free, fun, and lively videos on reading, writing, math, science, and physical fitness to name just a few.

Jack’s music is research-based and teacher-approved to focus on helping children learn important state, national, and early childhood standards.  All of Jack’s songs and videos engage children with not only great educational content but with cool beats, kids love, and fun movements. The unique method of weaving movement, learning and music, all combined together at once, has made Jack’s videos a huge hit. Over 2 million viewers tune in each day! Jack credits Lisa’s with ensuring this blend of movement and motion find its way into the music videos wherever and whenever possible. 

Tip for those math teachers out there… Huzefa recommends the videos on number bonds and skip counting in particular. Previously, Jack was performing 200+ live concerts per year but for right now, be sure to catch him every day on YouTube. Click here to listen to the full interview:
