Before attitude is a problem…
Before peer pressure is a problem…
Before alcohol and drugs are a problem…
SELF ESTEEM IS THE ANSWER.
Scot Cannon brings students through one full day of school in this stage presentation, portraying an adolescent trying to make all the choices and decisions necessary to keep him going in the right direction.
The first 30 minutes is silent pantomime with an original background score of music and sound effects.
In the second half, Scot removes his make-up on stage and delivers his comic monologue filled with questions for the audience.
Using the memories of his struggle with an adolescent speech problem, Scot brings students closer to this message: "If you think you can or you think you can't... you're right." (Henry Ford) His battle to be understood and accepted gives hope and encouragement to kids desperately trying to pull it all together.
This Character Education program focuses on self-esteem and making good choices.
In this powerful mime & music presentation, Scot Cannon begins in make up and brings the audience through a series of fast paced skits. On the surface it seems simply to be a fun, entertaining, engaging show.
The program shifts dramatically when Scot removes his make-up, breaks his mime silence, and speaks to the audience about acceptance of people despite our differences.
Using his own experiences with a childhood speech problem as a springboard, Scot explains that a kind word, an extra moment spent or a simple wave can change a bad day for someone - and that those simple things can sometimes be a defining moment and be remembered for a lifetime.
Scot uses the skits he performed to strengthen his simple message of kindness, and finishes with a five-minute mime class for the audience, to further reinforce his program.
This is a Character Education program focusing on bullying, tolerance, acceptance and compassion.

|Where In The Country Is…Solid Brass?|
Load up the tubas, trumpets and trombones! Solid Brass is taking you on a musical, geographical vacation from “Sea to Shining Sea.”
In the same format as Where in the World? - this program takes the audience on a journey through the good old USA using music and a power-point presentation.
Seeing our country as more than states on a map will spark an interest in geography, as this multi-media, interactive program thoroughly involves students in the “game” of guessing Where in the Country? Listening skills and concentration are needed to determine the location being communicated through the music.
The program includes a review of the trumpet, trombone, tuba, and horn and a description of sound production. Students will have fun and learn, in a unique way, a little more about America The Beautiful.
