"My son is 10 (4th grade) and has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He has never even ridden a 2 wheel bike before and will not be able to in the future due to his muscle disease and the physical deterioration it causes.

Your message today about not giving up when things are tough or seem unachievable was really an impressionable moment for him. I thank you for that.

Just know that you made a little kid hopeful today that he can be as determined as you to get past some of the obstacles he faces!"

Are They Listening?

Do your students stay engaged for the entire duration of an assembly? If the kids aren't paying attention in the first place then what's the point? Forty-five minutes can seem like an eternity for elementary students if you have the wrong speaker or entertainer.

Matt Wilhelm provided an experience that kept every child (and adult) in our K-5 building entertained. The oohs & aahs and gasps of shock were constantly escaping the mouths of our spectators as he preformed some pretty amazing feats.Even more important, they all walked away having learned that... it takes a lot of work and perseverance in order to be able to be successful - that giving up isn’t the answer. They also received a strong message about bullying and how important it is to stand up for others.With that combo I definitely recommend you bring Matt to your school or event! Not only that, but he was so on top of communication as we worked to schedule the event and as we approached it. I had the opportunity to hang out with him prior to the assemblies and in between. I can’t stress enough what a nice guy he is in addition to everything else!read more

Working with Matt was a pleasant experience from beginning to end. Matt is kind, very easy to talk to and is eager to share his story with students of all ages. He is very accomodating. His presentation is phenomenal and will have students (and teachers) cheering! The message he shares is one... we all need to hear more often: Be a Batman (or other superhero) to someone. Make a difference in someone's life by being kind.read more

Matt presents a one of a kind performance for children of all ages. His knowledge and experiences as a BMX professional adds excitement to his performances but even more importantly are his messages to the students of being "Someone's Superhero," thinking about how your words and actions can affect... others in postive and negative situations, and to "Never Give Up!" Being using his life experiences in conveying his messages as well as his talents, Matt will not disappoint your students, teachers, and staff members.read more

Great message and students and staff truly enjoy the show!!
Matt Wilhelm's presentation was so WELL RECEIVED at Longfellow! Not only were the students mesmerized by his off the chain bike moves, but they were truly inspired by his story. The teachers were also impressed that Matt knew how to "talk like a teacher"; he was so on point and compassionate with... all the students. He even helped to foster a sense of belonging with our staff. Teachers were chosen to have Matt jump over them with the bike; it was a bonding moment for all involved. One of our youngest Longfellow Bears, a kindergartner, was so moved that he wrote Matt a letter and said not to ever lose it. All the students have been coming up to me asking when the posters will be raffled that Matt left behind. I would strongly recommend this performance to any school at any grade level. It's not only an education in taking risks, but it's an education in kindness and the power of words!read more
On behalf of our PTA, I hired Matt to come to our elementary school just prior to Thanksgiving. He did his show for kids from kindergarten through 5th grade. He was a huge hit for all of the kids! The kids in every grade expressed how amazed they were by his tricks, but also touched by his story. I... am looking forward to having him out again in the future!read more

Matt did an amazing job at Hiawatha schools this past winter. He was very good at keeping the students and teachers engaged in the presentations from elementary school through middle and high school. There was a lot of crowd participation and his stories had meaningful messages behind them that... the kids were able to take with them. We loved having Matt and he is still being talked about at our school!read more

Our K-2 students thoroughly enjoyed Matt's program. The students were engaged from start to finish, and loved seeing all his tricks. Matt did a great job interacting with the students and adjusting for the different age ranges throughout each of his shows. The message was perfect for this age of... students, and it tied in well with the virtues we have been learning about this year. Matt was a pleasure to work with and we would love to have him bring his program to our school again next year!read more

Matt put on an amazing show for our school. Such positivity from the start of the show all the way to the end. So many smiles and laughter came out of every grade level at our school. Definitely recommend Matt.
Matt does a great assembly, and Horizon elementary (u-46) loved him! His program is an amazing mix of high paced excitement and honest conversations about working hard, being there to stand up when you see others being bullied, and how failures and hard practice will only make you better. Our K-6th... grade students were all engaged, entertained, and educated! Well recommended for any school! Dr. Schwardt- principal at Horizonread more

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

I have had Matt come to the school where I teach and the school that my children attend. Both times he has been very responsive, helpful, accommodating, prompt and put on an amazing show. He is entertaining but also you can tell he has picked up some crowd control tips along the way. His... presentation is perfect if you are promoting a growth mindset in your school. My students and my own children talk still talk about it. He is the perfect booking if you are looking for a positive, memorable and enriching experience. I can not recommend him enough!read more

Matt's show for our k-8th grade students was awesome. Kids of all age levels were engaged throughout the entire show. His tricks were amazing and his message resonated with the students and staff. We are looking forward to having Matt back in the future.
What a cool experience to see Matt Wilhelm in action, hear his story, and see the kids’ excitement while viewing his tricks! Matt did back-to-back assemblies for our school, and has perfected his delivery and command of student groups, and even tailored the messaging for the younger/older... audiences. His story is an inspiration, so the kids (and adults) walked away with some great words of advice. Highly recommend for other schools seeking a unique and lively performance with powerful “don’t give up” messaging.read more
What an amazing show! Aside from performing incredible BMX bike tricks, Matt is extremely professional and shares several powerful messages about being kind, not giving up, and working hard.

It is the consensus of everyone that Matt Wilhelm was highly skilled and clearly a total professional at putting together these types of shows and he was amazing to work with. Great communication prior to the event, and came fully equipped to setup, breakdown, and even cleaned up after his own show... after he did a free poster autograph session for the kids!! He put 100% into every aspect of this school event. Regarding the stunt work he did, the kids from every grade were blown away. We all loved how he instills a factor of motivational messaging for the kids and the encouraging messages he shared with the kids was spot on and thoughtful. This was the second time coming to our school and we WILL be inviting him back to the school again with zero hesitation.read more

Matt's amazing stunts, sense of humor and heartfelt messages about being an upstander, persevering to find your talent and keeping a growth mindset resonated great with our elementary school students. Matt's show reinforced all the messages that we strive to share with our students daily during... character ed/SEL lessons, and those "teachable moments." With the custom virtual show, it's easy and fun to record your students asking questions, and they were SO excited to see themselves as part of the show. Thanks for coming up with such a creative way to connect us from a distance during these crazy times, while modeling such important values. Best of luck to Matt on team USA!read more

Matt Wilhelm's assembly is the perfect balance of message and entertainment. The students and staff members absolutely loved it!
