Matt put on a spectacular assembly. He had a positive message and was engaging. Our students couldn’t stop talking about it!
If I ask my daughter how school was today, I usually get a short answer, fine, good, etc. When she saw this show, I didn't even have to ask how was school. She immediately said, do you know who Matt Wihelm is? Before I could answer, she gave me all the details about the show. She was able to tell... me about never giving up, and talked about bullying. She loved the show and for her to give me such specific details about the show, definitely shows her attention was caught. Great show and great message. The kids truly enjoyed it! I can't wait for him to come again next year.read more

5-star assembly!!! Matt Wilhelm performed at Mill Creek Elementary in September 2021 and it was an awesome experience! It was the first assembly for the school since COVID started, so it was highly anticipated by both students and teachers. Matt’s assembly did not disappoint! The students were... highly engaged with both Matt’s message and his BMX performance. The teachers were as well and especially loved Matt’s message about kindness, hard work and having a positive growth mindset. Matt’s story is inspiring and very relatable to both kids and adults! Matt does an excellent job balancing entertainment (his super cool BMX tricks!) with his story and message. Matt incorporates great humor and a positive message into his assembly, while also maintaining the attention of 400+ students. I was amazed how quickly they quieted down whenever Matt asked for their attention during the speaking portions of the assembly.Given the restrictions of COVID guidelines in schools, the assembly took place outside and I highly recommend this as a successful option during these challenging times. Both the students and teachers loved being outside for the assembly – fresh air, no gym echoes, no noisy bleachers. Weather can obviously be a concern and our original scheduled date was rained out. Matt was extremely flexible regarding rescheduling. In addition, Matt was extremely professional and easy to work with during the booking process. Matt has great communication skills and replies to phone calls and emails in a timely manner. He even incorporated the school’s motto/theme into his assembly to help solidify the message with students.I highly recommend Matt Wilhelm’s school assembly! I’ve already received feedback from students, parents and teachers that it would be wonderful to have Matt return in future school years!read more

I am the Assembly Coordinator for our PTO. With the need for virtual assemblies this year we are so happy to have found Matt's BMX show!

I wish every student could hear his message!read more

There has been so much positive feedback about his assembly by both staff and students. Parents have been posting on our Facebook page, that their students are coming home and talking about how great it was.From contacting him to set up this assembly, to setting up everything, to connecting to our... students, it has just been nothing short of amazing. I cannot thank him enough for coming out and providing such a great message to our community of students.I was not sure how much my Kindergartener or 2nd grader would have understood and processed what he was saying, but when they were explaining what he said they actually got it!I would definitely recommend this assembly to every child out there. We had Pre- K to 8th grade students attend and each student got something out of it. This is the BEST assembly that I have seen yet. Don’t miss out on the chance for your students to learn about Matt’s powerful messages!read more
We were honored to welcome Matt Wilhelm to The Avery Coonley School in Downers Grove on January 6, 2020. Matt's school assembly program was our welcome-back event after winter break, and the students needed something special to capture their attention and imagination after two weeks off of school.... Admittedly, Matt had his work cut out for him, but he more than rose to the occasion! The students were treated to an absolutely fantastic performance: Matt engaged them from the first minute to the last, exciting them with his arsenal of amazing BMX tricks, and enthralling them with stories of his background as a bullied kid. The students cheered in delight watching their classmates participate in tricks, and lost their minds when Matt jumped his bike over two of their teachers! His uplifting messages of trying your best, persevering through practice, and being kind and supportive to others resonated with all our students - from 1st through 8th grades! As a father of two kids at ACS and a member of their Home and School Association, I am so happy that we had Matt at our school. We would recommend him to any other elementary or middle school looking for a fantastic enrichment program! Thanks Matt!read more
Matt performed at our school in two shows - one for 4K-4th grade and another show for 5-8. He was amazing! He brought his amazing tricks to the show as well as a fantastic message about perseverance and anti-bullying! He kept the kids attention at all times and the kids, teachers and... administrators absolutely LOVED the assembly! I would recommend Matt to anyone!read more
Matt's positive message is matched by his positive energy, sense of humor, and AMAZING BMX tricks. He brings the COOL FACTOR to important messages about perseverance and kindness.
Matt is an infectious performer, entertainer, and presenter. His message about persevering, standing up for others, and being kind was well received and remembered by the students. These messages were woven throughout his presentation of his amazing bike tricks/skills which kept the students... engaged throughout the presentation.This is the 2nd time we've have Matt visit our school and both times, he was professional and had "teacher" tricks to keep the students on task. 🙂 When this student body moves to middle school, we hope to have him back once again to share his talent and his message.read more

The students were thrilled with his performance, and the message resonated. He's an... intelligent guy who totally gets the message across to the kids in a fun, entertaining way.read more
Matt Wilhelm was amazingly talented! He captured the attention of the students and kept it for the entire show. Matt uses his talents and his message about being bullied to keep the kids engaged during the assembly. Our students haven't stopped talking about his show!
Matt did a wonderful job with our student body. The students were amazed at the tricks he was able to do on his bike. The message he shared was so genuine as well. Excellent program and enlightening for our elementary students. Great job Matt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the second time I have been lucky enough to be at this assembly in the last 9 years! All I can say is WOW! The kids were so into listening and watching and participating. Matt, you are awesome and thank you for sharing your story. It has helped my son get through some very difficult times... as I was able to guide him through what you said. I think this could help children and adults of ALL ages! Just be kind!read more
Matt is engaging for students and they instantly relate to his stories. He taught us that everyone can stand up and be a hero.
