Steve Seskin Assembly

Steve Seskin is a successful songwriter who has written seven number one songs, including "Grown Men Don’t Cry," recorded by Tim McGraw, "Life’s A Dance," recorded by John Michael Montgomery, and "Don’t Laugh At Me," winner of NSAI and Music Row Magazine Song of the Year, as recorded by Mark Wills. 

"Don’t Laugh at Me" was also recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary and became the impetus for the Operation Respect/Don’t Laugh At Me curriculum designed to foster respect and kindness in schools. This program has been implemented in more than 20,000 schools across the country. Steve now enjoys performing at school assemblies, community concerts and educational conferences in support of this program. "Don’t Laugh At Me" is also available as a Reading Rainbow children’s book.
The Assembly Program...
Steve Seskin has a unique gift; he can walk into a room and, with a song, gain the attention and respect of his audience, both young and old. "Don’t Laugh at Me," the centerpiece of his program, is about being considerate, compassionate and respectful of one another. Before and after he sings the song, he engages the children in a conversation about bullying, giving them a forum to talk about their feelings as well as sharing some tips on what they can do to prevent it and deal with it when it does happen. The way to change the climate of the school community is to enlist the children in the effort to make their school a place where respect is valued and ridicule is not tolerated. 

This program is offered for K-6 as well as Middle School and High School. The performance is tailored to each specific group and includes seven age-appropriate songs along with the program’s cornerstone “Don’t Laugh at Me”. The songs address issues such as respect, peer pressure, diversity and self-esteem. Steve also includes a few fun songs to make the program entertaining for the kids. He can adapt the performance to the specific needs of any school including songs about literacy, family, recycling etc. This performance of songs and commentary runs approximately 45 minutes.…
