Brent Daniels was amazing!  He's a very engaging performer and appeals to both teachers and students.  Everyone had a lot of fun and learned a lot about music technology.  He won rave reviews from everyone and had them all singing tunes throughout the day.  Loved the level of engagement with the student volunteers. A great way for our school to come together and just enjoy themselves.  Brent is a real pro and lifted the spirits of our school.

This program was great. I would like to thank all you for putting on a great show for the kids here at Camden County Juvenile Detention Center. For me being an after school program coordinator at a juvenile detention center, it can be challenging at times looking for different programs that are willing to come out and service the kids here at the facility. Some programs won't because when they hear "juvenile detention center" they have a negative impression about the place. So, again I would humbly like to thank you for coming out and putting on a great show for our kids here. The staff and all the kids enjoyed the program that took place, they have been asking for you to come back already!  I do look forward to bringing you back for the next school year. Thank You!!!

AWESOME!! Brent was just wonderful!! He really engaged the kids and got them into the program so much. The volunteers did terrific and Brent was fabulous with them all. He also did an incredible job intertwining the music technology instruction and the a message about the importance of school in a way that I do believe got through to the kids. On top of it all, he was just a nice guy and I'm so glad that we had him bring his inspiring and energetic program to our school!

All the kids loved the assembly. I took a survey in my class, they more than loved it, it was their best assembly EVER!! We have had a few good ones too!! The same day as the assembly was a staff meeting, all the adults LOVED it as well. I have been in charge of booking assemblies for the last couple years and this one by far was the favorite by students and adults. Mr. Daniels was so good with the kids, a natural for sure. He is a great teacher and musician.  I have been meaning to write him to tell him how much everyone loved the assembly.  please pass this note on to him. He is a keeper for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brent did a fabulous job relating to the students.  The teachers and staff also enjoyed his presentation.  He is obviously a talented musician, artist and performer. His ability to draw the crowd in to his performance and be so comfortable with the participation of an audience that can be so unpredictable was amazing to watch. We would gladly recommend him and enjoy having him back again!

The assembly was enjoyed by students, staff and administration.  Many adults in the building requested further information on the assembly.  One teacher wanted to try to have the assembly at her children's school and another thought ti would be great for a summer camp.  She thanked us for bringing music into the school in such a fun, unique and inspiring way.  Brent Daniels truly enjoys what he does and that shines through his presentation and relationship with the students during the assembly.  It was high energy and educational.  At the end of the assembly, the students did not want it to end.

Brent was fantastic!  He related so well to the kids, kept them completely interested throughout the entire program, and involved everyone.  I have had teachers, kids, and parents come up to me since the program to say how much they loved it and how much FUN they had.  The kids really participated through singing and dancing which is so rare in an educational assembly anymore.  I Would highly recommend this program to any organization.

I just wanted to send this email to let you know how fantastic our assembly was today with Brent.  It is evident that he enjoys what he does and he is great with the children.  The teachers loved his performance and they would like to have him back every year!  I also received feedback from some parents letting me know how much their children enjoyed themselves.  My own second grade boys told their father, in great detail, what a great time they had - this almost never happens.  I would appreciate if you could share this with Brent since it is always fulfilling to know that others enjoy what you do and appreciate you.  I will recommend him to the other district PTA presidents.

Brent Daniels showed how musical training partnered with technology can turn digital recordings into unlimited creative sounds, rhythms, and music.  He involved and engaged middle and elementary school-age students, and the teachers were grooving to the beat as well!  Lastly, Brent delivered the message that it is never too late to decide on a goal and to take all the steps needed to gain the skills required, including a well-rounded education.  He was such a joy!

This assembly was my favorite assembly in my 15 years of teaching.  It involved a lot of audience participation and appealed to the children because they could relate to the music of television shows, movies, and video games.  Also, many of my students were talking about it for a few days, which proves they truly enjoyed it!

We had an AMAZING time with Brent Daniels for his Artist-in-Residency!  The positive feedback keeps pouring in.  I really loved how he created a teaching point with each group and then showcased all of them at the culminating school assembly.  The bonus was the school bonding he helped create when the students cheered for their grade level song and even more touching, when other grade levels danced to the songs of their peers.These will be the memories that the students take with them this year.  I'm so glad Brent Daniels was a part of their educational journey.

Our students and faculty LOVED Brent's performance!  I have never had as many positive comments afterwards. Our 5th grade even wanted to write notes to thank him for coming here!  We had some teachers taking the time to look at Brent's website.  The students were engaged throughout and  very motivated.  Brent had a lot of students participate. One shy student felt like she was a rock star!  Technology is their world and knowing how sound can be manipulated was fascinating for our students. Well presented! As one of my own students commented, "The assembly was epic!"

The kids loved it.  The younger kids really enjoyed the creation of their own music and Brent tailored the program to their academic level (K-3).  The older kids (4-6th) were engrossed in a totally different way - both enjoying the music but also really interested in learning about the technology that Brent explained so well.  The staff agreed it was an excellent show.

I wish I could rate this higher than "Highly Satisfied." I'm a special education teacher with a class of students with multiple disabilities. Brent involved all of the students in the assembly he presented and captured their attention. He allowed for one of my students to get up and make monkey noises as part of a song and helped the rest of the class feel confident enough to take risks and raise their hands to dance or get up in front of everyone. My students left the assembly feeling proud, confident, and inspired that they would be able to be like Brent someday. Thank you to Brent for impacting such a special group of children...there need to be more people like you!

Brent Daniels really rocked at both of our schools.  The kids are still talking about how amazing he was!!  This is the first time, that I can remember, that so many parents came up to me saying that their child(ren) absolutely loved an assembly.  Those who have have children in both schools, were saying similiar things, like "Not just my one child, but both raved about the Music Technology assembly."  Brent was wonderful and would look forward to having him back at our schools in a few years.  Thank you for this wonderful program!!

Thank you again for coming out and giving a dynamic presentation in electronic music at Neal Middle School. The students were really excited and interested in going further into what you demonstrated for them.

I have been involved with bringing assemblies to our school for the last 8-9 years.  Brent Daniels and his Music Technology assembly was by far the best assembly we have ever had!  Brent is an amazingly accomplished musician and performer.  His passion for music and using  technology to create it radiates out through his show.  His excitement over his craft immediately captured the hearts and minds of all of the students. It is extremely apparent that he loves what he does and he thoroughly enjoys kids.  He totally engaged them for every minute.  He inspired them about music.  He involved them with the technology.  He educated them about his passion and encouraged them to find their own. They loved him!  Our teachers were gushing over the performance, the parents were thrilled and our kids could not stop talking about it.  I will be sharing our excitement over this assembly with the rest of our district.  Stupendous!

I had to take the time to thank you for your superior presentation to the students yesterday.  The students were excited, engaged, and enthusiastic not only right after the show, but today you are the talk of the school.  Again, I want to thank you for your words of wise council to the students regarding the importance of education!  I had one of our quieter students come in and talk to me about how he can try to do more to learn...he is a student who is capable but could work harder.  It was a great conversation using your words and show to tell him how important his other work is.  It is apparent that you enjoy your work and I felt very blessed to have had you here!!

My staff and campers kept stopping by my office to tell me what a great performance this was! He was loved by all ranging in age from 3 1/2 yrs old to 58 yrs old. Will definitely be using Brent Daniels again. Not only was the show EXCELLENT but his communication even up to the last minute was fantastic. As we were having weather and traffic issues in our area his questions, communication and punctuality were of the highest quality. 5 stars! Thank you for a wonderful experience for all!

Brent did a wonderful job with our special needs students. He was able to modify the show to cater to the young students in our elementary school and then again for our High School Students. Everyone in the school, students, administration and faculty commented on how much they loved the assembly. "This was the best assembly we ever had".

I have been bringing Cultural Art programs into our elementary school for 10 years.  As you can imagine I've seen it all, the good the bad and everything in-between.  That said, I have never had so many children and teachers thank me for bringing in Brent.  If that wasn't enough I have to admit that I actually sat throughout both of the presentations as I found Brent to be not only entertaining but knowledgeable.  His innate ability to reach his audience and get them involved and truly excited was exhilarating to watch.

This was our last assembly for the school year and it was the FIRST time all the kids, from kindergarten to 5th grade, all raved about the show! It appealed to all ages. The kids loved learning about this and the teachers had fun too! ... Thanks so much.

Brent Daniels puts on an outstanding program. He keeps all of our students -- grades K-8 -- entertained and engaged throughout.  He has an easy style with the students and is able to manage the crowd in a friendly yet effective manner.  And the music, singing, and dancing is infectious.

Brent was fantastic.  The kids had a great time.  The inclusive aspect of his performance is an added plus.  The kids talked about it for quite some time afterwards.  Brent did a great job of relating to the kids; the message of staying in school and doing their best was very clear and appreciated; and he's a great guy.  The adults also spoke very highly of his performance. Thanks for a great pair of assemblies!

Hands down the best assembly we’ve ever had had, and have heard this same thing from a number of other faculty members.  I’ve never seen one person captivate and engage an entire audience the way Brent did---awesome experience for all.

Brent Daniels put on a great assembly for our students!  He kept their interest the entire time and while teaching them technology they may otherwise not have exposure to.

Wellsville Elementary

One of the best assemblies we have had since I started doing the Assemblies in 2011!  Brent is amazingly talented and knows how to interact with the kids.  He adjusts the assembly very nicely to be age appropriate and reach the younger and older kids. All the Teachers were raving about the assembly as well and really enjoyed it. It is nice that Brent tells them they can do some of the same things he does with their IPods and IPads- my daughter experimented with garageband all the way to the beach the next day! It was definitely inspiring for the kids  to pursue their dreams and do their best in school! ... I Highly recommend this assembly- it will not disappoint!

We were very pleased with Brent Daniels and his music technology show, it was a big hit with the students. 
Craig Bennett - Dean of Students

This assembly was one of the best assemblies we have had at our school.  Brent Daniels captivated an audience of 600+ students showing them how music technology is fun and can be easily done by anyone.  He shared apps that are accessible for students and families.  Brent sent an important message to students relating music technology to science, math, reading, etc.  At the end of the show Brent involved everyone in the audience so the entire student body felt as though they had a part in making the song.  Thanks again!  We hope to have the Music Technology show back at our school in the future.

Brent offered an educational and entertaining show. His integration of the children's sounds made the performance personally engaging for the whole student body. He readily adapted to instruct and provide encouragement to the wide range of ages in our student body. We highly recommend this show!

We had Brent Daniels at our school he was fantastic.  From start to finish the students were fully engaged and although the K-1 probably did not understand a lot of the details as to how he was creating the effects there was so much activity they remained fully engaged for the whole show.  The students are still talking about it today and many of us went home singing parts of our 'song'.    Brent promotes education and the power of or reason for getting a good education throughout the show which was commented on by several of our older students and the staff.   I highly recommend his show.

Wanted to let you know - I often find it difficult to find age appropriate assemblies for the middle school that holds the kids' interests and speaks to them. Brent's show was both informative and entertaining without dumbing it down or pushing an agenda. I hope his demonstration sparks new creativity in our kids!

I have been at Worcester Prep for 42 years and I felt this was the best-received cultural program we have ever had.  I was so impressed with how you easily captured the attention of the entire audience (ages 4 through 13). The quality of the program was noteworthy and we certainly plan to have you return for another performance!  Keep spreading your positive message!

Mr. Daniels was very professional, extremely talented and did a phenomenal job of engaging the students. Not only does he clearly have a natural talent with music but his enthusiasm and passion for education clearly shines through in his presentation. He seemed to be enjoying our students equally as much as they enjoyed him. We would gladly recommend him to other schools AND welcome him back to ours!

Brent presented an outstanding program.  He was fun, funny, engaging and very well received by the audience that ranged from K - 4.  He spoke to their level and included many students to participate.  It was like a party!!  He also stressed the importance of a good education to reach your goals and dreams.  The feedback from teachers was all very positive and we would certainly invite him back to Gill St. Bernard's in the future.

Brent was amazing. This is about the fourth or fifth time I have had the opportunity to book Brent for children. He keeps them engaged, interacts well with them, has a good read on their attention, and of course, he is highly talented. I also liked the way he tied his performance to the education he has received.

7th grade students were so engaged in Brent's presentation!  We were able to include sounds from power tools, students, voices and other items so that Brent could show the how it all can be modified to make music.  His sense of humor was spot on with the kids and they truly enjoyed the presentation.  They talked about it for days, which for 13 year olds is a very big impression!

Brent Daniels was really engaging with all age levels.  By having such a high level of student involvement throughout, the students were not watching a program, but were an integral part of it.  His message of being willing to try things and experiment was well-received.

This was easily one of the best assemblies we have ever had.  I am a Kindergarten teacher and my students LOVED it.  One little girl walked into the classroom afterwards and said, "Man I wish we could have had more of that!!!!!!!"  I could see that all the students from Kindergarten to grade 6 were completely entertained and interested.  Brent Daniels was very appealing with his relaxed personality and sense of humor, ability to capture his audience and variety of interesting activities and information.  A truly EXCELLENT performance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our school loved it!  The kids were obviously the first to really get excited and at first the teachers looked a little hesitant because of how loud it was.  But just a few minutes in, Brent had everyone hooked.  Our principal stopped by MULTIPLE times to take pictures and listen!  That means A LOT! Thanks for an inspiring and interesting show!  Brent was great!
