The Artsbridge presentation from Australia was wonderful! The kids were engaged with participation and discussion.
We learned so much from Paul. We would LOVE to have him back!
Taylor's performance prompted insightful science & history discussions back in the classroom.
This was the best performance yet! Students were still singing the songs this morning.

Hello Paul, I just wanted to reach out and say thank you.
I am currently 22 years old, and when I was in third grade at Parley Coburn School in Elmira, New York. I met you, and you made didgeridoos with all of us and I still have mine until this day. Since that day you have always been such an idol to me and I gained an even bigger respect for music and instruments because of you. And when I was in high school and middle school I joined band because of my love for instruments. I remember the day we made the didgeridoo, I went home and I sat outside playing mine until night fall because in my imagination I thought if I played loud enough, koalas would hear and respond. I was a very imaginative kid! I still remember the song as well! Currently I am a student at Brockport University.....thank you, and let you know how grateful I am and always will be to you for the found love of music and Australia you have given me...

Lighting Our Way-Interfaith Storytelling
by Pam Faro
Storytelling Magazine, Vol 28 Issue 5, p23.
National Storytelling Network
Starting with the Colorado stars overhead in the dark planetarium, we traveled through the heavens to the night sky over Australia-lovely! Wondrous! Wyoming-Aussie storyteller...Paul Taylor...told Aboriginal stories of the Dreaming, showed photos of the land, the rocks, and the paintings on the rocks. His didgeridoo sang to us, weaving the stars and the Rainbow Serpent and the red land and the black spaces between the stars and the stories and the people and the Dreaming all together.
It was utterly foreign to me. And...one of the most profoundly spiritual experiences I've ever had. I couldn't enter that worldview, but in my listening and seeing the stories I could perceive, at least taste, a profound whole-ness to it... And while it was utterly foreign to me, I experienced a measure of peace and wonder within myself while being gifted with a peek at other's lives and spirits and was blessed by it.
"It is amazing how quickly we are drawn into the fascinating and diverse world of Australia through your engaging music and storytelling. Your talent is a gift for us all."

The fabulous UW Honors class with their beautiful mural March 2017.
The Yubulyawan Dreaming Project is profound and reflects upon how important your work is. You have definitely made a significant contribution to our times - to the children and adults who need and want to be part of a world that values and understands our Mother Earth. I was moved to tears listening to the wisdom teachings of Bill Harney and moved into song and dance listening to Cooee.

What wonderful work you do for the children of Wyoming! My Lizzie (Queenie) from Desert View Elementary still loves your CD! We often Coo-EEEEEE in crowded places to call the kiddos back to mom and dad! Keep it up! Your time and influence is a treasure to SO many! Cheers!
Thank you Paul Taylor for another awesome week of music, dance, learning, community building, and so much more!
