Creativity & Humor: Building The Foundation For Better Communications
"The kids absolutely loved the time spent with you! Thank you for engaging them and peaking their interest!" - Altoona Area Junior High School, Altoona, Pennsylvania
"The way that Dave personalized his session was great and the students really enjoyed it." - Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, Red Deer, Alberta Canada
The Beatles: Their Influence on American Teenagers and the Concert Experience
"What I found most useful was how you weaved in the cultural dynamic. The Beatles themselves are representative of that change, and this is what I wanted my students to understand. Everyone loved the program. Two thumbs up! We would definitely recommend it to others." - Clark Fork High School, Clark Fork, Idaho
"This was music history coming to life! Our students learned something special, and saw the relevance of understanding something rather than merely being entertained by something." - Cleveland State University
Career Day: Comedy - Are You Kidding Me?
"(As an educator) I didn't realize that there was a job in comedy without being a comedian. It was interesting to learn about the coaching and management aspects of the field. Those interested in a career in comedy or the entertainment industry did learn about what the jobs entail and how to prepare for a career." - Lakeside Junior / Senior High School, Plummer, ID
"The students learning was impacted through the information that they received from Dave. I liked the hand-out that he provided for us. The hand-out defined the Entertainment team. The bottom line is that I learned a lot about the different jobs." - Browning Middle School, Billings, MT
