No one actually asks this question, but you should know that we bump some tunes (school appropriate) when we hang with students. We definitely show our PA system (two speakers & a subwoofer) some love.
This is not because we are rambunctious millennials trying to be cool; there is actually a lot of method behind the madness. Our presentations are not lectures, they are experiences. Students are taken through a roller coaster of emotions as they take in important life lessons and learn information to keep themselves and their friends safe. We tell a story of justice that involves a lot of energy, multi-media, group activities and individual participation.
After conducting well over 1,000 presentations to nearly 100,000 students, we have discovered that music is a powerful vehicle to make the program more effective. So warn your neighboring teachers that for the first and last minute of class, as well as an occasional 2 minute video, your room will be a bit louder than normal. But don’t worry, we are relevant and effect as well as respectful. The sound level is not blasting and there are only 1-3 times during a lesson (which varies depending on the presentation) when the volume is turned up, usually only for a video.
