Bil offers student workshops in which he leads classroom groups through the process and adventure of creating a tall tale. The maximum number of students in a workshop is 35-40 children, and the maximum number for an assembly is as many as can fit in the concert space. Bil can also lead teacher/educator workshops.
Bil offers several school programs for both students and teachers. His school performance consists of a 45-50 minute concert of his original tall-tales. Bil has a 30 minute set of stories designed especially for K-1st graders, and several different 45-55 minute sets of stories for 2nd-3rd graders, and 4th -5th/6th graders. He also has a set of stories for middle and high school ages that are a bit more complex but just as appropriate in humor, language and content. While the concerts are typically a little less than an hour in length, Bil can arrange his concerts to fit the schedule of the school. A question and answer session can follow the concert if so desired.
