Larry and Tyler the Earthworm

Since the late 60s, Larry has been using storytelling, and music played on things others might throw away, to teach love of books, the environment, and one another.  All of the programs listed below can be adapted as fun family programs (often with Elaine), classroom or school assemblies, or school residencies designed to teach the concepts as well as learning to tell one's own stories:

SING ALONG WITH YOUR COMPOST PILE
MY HEALTH CLUB IS MY WALK TO WORK (healthy transit)
THE GIANT'S JUNKYARD (creative reuse)
CRANES, WETLANDS, AND YOUR WATER
MUSIC OF THE SPHERES (sounds in nature and invention)
MUSIC FOR WEAPONS AND WASTE REDUCTION

Call 612-747-3904 or email larry@keyofsee.mn for more information or to arrange a program, because here's what others have to say:
 
        Thank you for telling us a story with origami to go with it. Now that you did it, I got some paper and am going around telling that story.
        I learned that you shouldn't waste your time throwing things away when you can make musical instruments from them.  I liked when you blew into that big horn. The people down the hall must have heard it.
- STUDENT

        My speech class was delighted by your storytelling. They wonder if you have any more fantastic "instruments" in your bag, and are the gophers considering a space adventure. It takes a unique talent to captivate high schoolers, and I appreciate your extra effort to be with us.
- HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH TEACHER

        He made music with lots of nifty stuff.
        He told stories about frogs that acted tough,
        He said to try and save everything.
        It might be useful and save you money, Ka-Ching!
- STUDENT

        Thank you very much for your wonderful presentations on the State Fair Sustainability Stage. You were a big hit with the kids, as well as those of us of a certain age.
- MPCA ECO-EXPERIENCE TEAM

        Thank you for a marvelous time of storytelling and exchanging ideas. You are impressive -- especially your sensitive manner with the children, and your genuineness. When your creative juices flow, wonderful things happen. May your commitment to serving others be blessed.
- HOSPITAL MUSIC THERAPIST
 
        Thanks SO MUCH for coming to our classroom on Friday.  The kids are still talking about all they learned and seem so inspired.  Your storytelling and excitement is contagious.  We appreciate your time and efforts, and you have helped us in our knowledge of sound and also our appreciation for "re-use."  Thanks again,
- 3rd GRADE TEACHER FROM LINO LAKES
