Dear Mr. deCant,
The entire student body and staff from Tisko Elementary School want to send you a BIG
“Thank you”. Your inspiration and explicit instruction helped our students to enjoy your
very creative, instructional entertainment. It really is hard to find good cultural awareness
activities that help incorporate our new Common Core curriculum standards as your
performance does. Mrs. Nelson, a Kindergarten teacher stated, “Finally, something our
students at the lower levels can learn from and use within our classrooms”.
Your unique songs and creativity helped create a wonderful experience and by the way,
Metamorphosis was my favorite! Thank you for inspiring my students to become better
I have been meaning to write to tell you that you made a HUGE hit in our community! Everyone,
young and old, absolutely loved you! Several parents have said that you must come back again!
I couldn't agree more.
Thank you for making our opening picnic and Dedication a successful and memorable event. I
love it when parents say they want more, as I am sure you can relate to! :)
With love and appreciation,
Head of School

We had a wonderful program last night with Al deCant! Al performed his Pajama Jam
program for a very enthusiastic group of children and their parents. He is enthusiastic,
talented, energetic, and genuinely likes being around children. Al recently retired from his
job as an elementary school principal and is focusing on his music programs. I highly
recommend him for your library or local school!”

We had the singing principal, Al deCant, at Plainville Public last night. This guy is awesome!
He performed for a full hour and had the kids up and dancing and playing along on
percussion instruments, parading, etc. He is also reasonably priced.

Thank you for your outstanding character education program, WE ARE CARING. You really
know how to energize and inspire your audience. Our students will remember your musical
messages for many years. We play your CARING song over the PA the first Monday of
every month as a kick off to our monthly character theme. Teacher and students can’t wait
to have you back.

I finally listened to your cassette last week and (to paraphrase Red Grammar) I Think It’s
Wonderful! Your songs are very singable and fun, you have a great voice, the recordings are well
done, and you care deeply about kids. When you are ready to hit the road you should have many
audiences eagerly awaiting you.
