“Arthur Lee Land’s message touched our audience and his presentation was innovative and REALLY FUN!!! His keynote presentation ranks at the top… the best we have had."
06.01.09Mary L. Kimpston, Music Teacher, Westridge Elementary School, West Des Moines, IA
"Arthur Lee Land presented three separate assemblies to various ages of students, incorporating electronic looping, the importance of LISTENING—in music and in life—and the pillars of good character. Arthur did an excellent job of getting the students’ attention with his musical expertise and holding the students’ attention with his presentation. Arthur not only had a positive and uplifting message to share, but he also involved the students in the assembly. The PTA representatives and the teachers felt that his presentation was worthwhile and beneficial, complementing what we had been working on throughout the school year concerning character education. The students were enthusiastic and positive when asked about their experience that day. Arthur did an excellent job and I highly recommend him to other schools. He is a fantastic musician, excellent educator and a positive person. Schools are fortunate to have him for a visit!"

Great show for Jr. High students. Especially given the fact that many schools are now starting the PBIS initiative. For positive behaviors. Arthur connected very well with the Middle School students. They really felt he was very cool! He made great connections to their real lives and making good decisions! Great show!

02.23.09Mark Wall, Dean of Students, Cove School, Northbrook, Illinois
Arthur has created a connection with our students. He came to our school as an unknown. Some of our students had seen him at summer camp and recommended that he call our school, so he did. When Arthur came to our school, he was able to create a connection that has continued from one year to the next. Our students love Arthur!

"Arthur was absolutely amazing. How many entertainers can honestly hold the attention of 380 students for nearly an hour, two days before the end of the school year? Arthur Lee Land CAN!"
04.27.08Lisa Roepe Teacher, Kansas City, MO
The following is the announcement that I wrote for our PTA newsletter raving about the assembly:On Monday, December 17th the school was treated to a fantastic assembly. Arthur Lee Land is a touring musician who plays many different instruments. The assembly focused on Mr. Land's lesson about how harmony is so important in music as it is in life. He asked the students, "Why do you think we have only one mouth and two ears?" It is vital to listen in order to get along. It was fascinating to watch different instruments being played, recorded and looped to make this one-man-band sound like a complete ensemble. Many thanks to PTA for bringing the school such an enjoyable and educational program!
04.25.08Dean Stankovic, Principal, Fireside Elementary School, Louisville, CO
Live Looping is a unique way to get children involved. Arthur did a nice job keeping the audience's attention. His presentation was very enjoyable.
04.25.08Pam Ehly, Teacher, Omaha, NE
Arthur connected with the audience from the start. He began playing rhythms as the students entered the gym for the program. His message about listening and harmony were evident. He involved the students throughout his presentation as well.
04.23.08Sharla McCarron, PTO, Cedar Rapids, IA
He delivered an excellent message in an engaging and entertaining way. The kids loved it! He even personalized the songs for the kids. He is a talented performer and we would recommend him for any age level.
10.13.07Gary Henry, Principal, Fairfield Middle School, Fairfield, IA
"A great one-man show, with a story that all kids can relate to. Arthur captured and sustained the interest of over 400 middle school students with his creative, topical and interactive assembly."
07.24.07Ann Cathcart, The Learning Camp/Founder, Vail CO
We have hosted Arthur Lee Land at The Learning Camp on several occasions. We are a summer program for children with ADHD and Learning Differences. Each time the children have LOVED the evening of music, dance and FUN. It is a joy for the children to be Rockin' with a man that understands their challenges in school. He really connects with our children
05.12.07Matthew Morrison, 5th Grade Teacher, Birch Elementary School, Broomfield CO.
Arthur not only evoked a healthy interest in music, but he impressed both the children and me with how he used technology to augment his solo renderings. When he involved the students he won the crowd. His performance/sharing was engaging and educational for my ten and eleven year olds.....inspirational.
05.12.07Julie Pullium, General Music Teacher, Birch Elementary School, Broomfield CO
Arthur truly engages kids to a high degree. He knows how to speak their language. Every student was absolutely fascinated. I highly recommend him.
