MICHIGAN TOUR TESTIMONIAL E-MAIL RESPONSES!

Dr. Karen Fox
Music Specialist
Schwarzkoff Elementary
Rob-
You were absolutely incredible this morning….GREAT responses from the kids and teachers…. a couple examples: 1) a 2nd grade girl who’s been doing some bullying wants to know how soon can you come back- you obviously reached her! 2) a 6th grade teacher was just having the “what makes you more alive/what direction is your life going in” conversation with his class yesterday and loved that you reinforced it, and 3) a 6th grader just brought the surveys down and said your assembly for her was a “once in a lifetime” experience so a big thank you for making SUCH a difference in the world… I feel blessed to have met you and am SOOO glad the kids got to be in your space… we’re all better people for it!
Karen

Subject: Hi from a student at Jack Harvey Elementary
Dear Rob, You are so cool! Remember you came to are school on March 15th,2007. Everyone said that was the coolest assembly ever!

Hi Rob!,
It was awesome that you came to Jack Harvey Elementary!!! Everyone in my class loved dancing, listening, and learning not to bully others. I hope that you come back to my school and teach other kids what you taught me!
From: Sara B.

“Thank you so much Rob. You have changed my life! I am 16 years of age and have wanted to become a musician for a while. You recently did a show for us at West Grand High School. I just wanted to thank you for your appearance at our school. I had no motivation to pursue any of my dreams or wishes until you came along. You have inspired me, and in the four days since you did your show, I have unlocked talents I never even dreamed of having.”
Casey

“That was so cool hearing you play at our school! I am in 9th grade and play the drums. You really inspired me to practice at home on my set more often. Who knows maybe I’ll become “Ted the Drummer!” Thanks for being at our school. You were so awesome.”

“Rob caused me to think about not doing things I would regret in life. Also to follow what you believe and not what the others think. I am 13 and a half and Rob was a great role model for my friend and me. I strongly recommend his presentation for other schools.”
10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 . . . YES – I recommend him for other schools!”
