"Your presentation was an integral part of the conference and valuable assistance to the participants."

Russel Sage College


“We were fortunate to have Brian Chevalier visit our school for a Character Education assembly and it is fair to say that his two performances exceeded our expectations. Character Ed is a big part of the Shaker Road community ethos and we have been fortunate to have many great presenters come to work with our students. But Brian’s manner and talents and deliberate efforts to connect with the kids made his performance that much more enjoyable and meaningful for all. He is far more than a talented musician or an artist who is playing to a specific crowd. He is kind and thoughtful and it is plainly clear that he believes in and lives by the messages in his songs. We always tell the adults in our building to model the behavior that we seek and that can certainly be said of Brian. Thank you for coming to Shaker Road!”

William E. Dollard
Shaker Road Elementary School


Character Day
with Brian!

Have a focus group (such as a class or a grade level) create an original Character Education song for your class/school. The writing process is a great way to engage kids in a deep, meaningful discussion about character, bullying, self-esteem or any other topics you would like to include in the song.

They will perform this song with Brian in a school wide assembly that same day.This is often a 2 day process in which the students write the song on the first day and perform it in a school wide assembly on the second day. You can also include a studio quality recorded copy of this song for your school's future use.

Through a discussion on the phone with a representative from the school or parent group Brian plans the overall direction and message to be contained in the song he will write with your school.  

The possibilities are endless - contact Brian today to schedule your PBIS assembly or songwriting workshop!

Write a school song and include your school's Character Education school wide theme. Write a song based on your favorite characters from books. Tie in your school's modo. Personalize the song to your school. View Printable PDF >

Note: I am very sensitive to the connotations of the word bully and I am very careful as to how I use the word and am aware that some schools don’t want the word used at all. I also approach the whole subject in a very positive way, talking about what we will do. ~ Brian Chevalier

These are very popular programs for New Jersey’s Week of Respect, Anti Bully Week and Violence Awareness Week.

So you’ve booked Brian, here are some answers to questions you may have and what to expect!

"Character Education is all about community, and what better way to promote Character Ed than to come together as a community and celebrate positive Character traits."
~ Brian Chevalier

You can create Character Ed messages that address the specific needs of your Character Education program. The beauty of this residency is that once the residency is over you have a CD of the songs that you can use in assemblies for years to come. You can write a school song!

Brian guides the students to write the songs in a variety of styles, so you can end up with a collection of songs that include Folk, Rock, Reggae, Latin, Island, Blues, Country, whatever direction you want to go in.
