Our Story

Start With Heart creators Mark Beckwith and Obediah Thomas have performed educational shows for children in schools since 1999. Even earlier, Mark got his break writing songs and stories for children as the music director for the internationally popular Jumpstart Series, starting in 1990. With over 10 million units in sales worldwide, it exposed Mark to new forms of ‘“edutainment” and multimedia, which planted the seed for Shows That Teach, Razzle Bam Boom, and now our beloved Start With Heart.

Our Videos

Our classroom videos address a wide variety of topics, including growth mindset, SEL (social-emotional learning), respect, kindness, PBIS, attitude, bullying, focus, the environment, body movement, and more. Each video is carefully crafted, using songs, common kid situations, and humor, to engage K-5 students, while teaching them important life skills. Our popular character, Puey-the-Pig, delightfully represents the viewpoint of an elementary school kid.
