A Few Teachers/Directors/Librarian  comments:

Mr. Willy gave a wonderful performance at our library! The children were, literally, lying on the floor in laughter. Mr. Willy manages to engage the children and keep the parents entertained as well. He actually had the parents singing along in addition to the children! Our patrons are already asking for him next year!

… from the get-go, Willy had the children, and adults, engaged and entertained by his storytelling, musicianship, and high energy, keeping everyone smiling and laughing! There is no doubt Willy is a great storyteller, and he weaves it seamlessly in with his guitar playing. I will definitely have Willy back again!

“Mr. Willy’s enthusiasm held our student’s total attention throughout his delightful performance. He is a great children’s performer, full of engaging, funny and silly songs.  Our students were smiling, singing and giggling the entire time.”

“During the summer of 2016, one family told me Mr. Willy was their favorite performer and they love his guitar. I enjoyed working with Willy Welch so I highly recommend using him as a performer. I will definitely be seeing him again at my library.”

—Lisa Betham, Haslet Library, Haslet, Texas


“Not sure who had more fun — our teachers or our students!

Mr. Willy is a three-ring circus of child-friendly craziness with guitar; silly songs;

a shy, tiny dinosaur; and a very confident spider monkey.

Thank you again for another great performance!”

“Mr. Willy is a wonderfully talented musician.  He is engaging, fun and the children really enjoy his show!”

Linda Wilson, Grace Christian Day School, Plano, Tx


“Joyful! Creative! Funny! What an energetic, interactive presentation! Our kids (AND staff) love him and regularly ask when he will be back!  It is always a treat to have him come and entertain with his silly antics and fantastic voice.  We love Mr. Willy! :)”

You were AWESOME and everyone is still talking about how much they enjoyed you. What fun you are. And how perfectly age appropriate your show is- so fantastic that you could awe and create smiles among so many different ages groups all at the same time. We thorougly enjoyed your show and can’t thank you enough for making Charlie’s bday fun. He had the best time of all!!

It kind of captured my attention. I wasn’t wandering my eyes around the room.

I like the book that you did, it was good. I enjoyed the song you sang.

The story was meraculously (sic) cute. Keep writing.

He’s absolutely incredible!

What I appreciated as a parent was that in midst of all the silliness, he shared some important “lessons in life.” Several teachers commented that his presentatiosn were the best they had seen all year.

Willy was the highlight of the first, second and third annual Festival of Books.

The kids are still talking about his visit. He was wonderful with every age level.

…an incredible job of alternating books, stories and songs, keeping the children amused, entertained and engrossed.
