  • Your gift for inspiring kids is unparalleled, my friend!

    Kyle Pickett Conductor, North State Symphony & Juneau Symphony
  • I have to tell you... my kids are playing your CD non-stop! My 12 yr-old is singing "Don't Monkey w/my Heart" and my 8 yr-old loves the "robot song". It's a lot of fun! Reminds me of "Magical Mystery Tour"... very Beatle-ly...

    Denise CO Noizemaker
  • What a show, you have created rabid fans here, we are listening and reading your work on a daily basis and that is no exaggeration. I think a multimedia kid's rock opera is in cards, I'M SERIOUS!

    Marc Masnik Northern CA Noizemaker
  • It was a lot of fun.

    Mary Barnes Cellist, Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra on Phineas McBoof Crashes The Symphony
  • 5 Stars for Grammaropolis. Great music, great lyrics. Schoolhouse rock for the next generation! While my older kids are enjoying the album, the best moment has come from my three year old singing along about nouns and pronouns. And I have to say that the music is so good that I catch myself listening to it even when my kids aren't in the car. Every part of speech has a song in a different genre of music, matching the personalities (Techno for the interjection, Blues for the pronoun, etc.) And if you know the lyrics to these songs, you'll know all about the parts of speech.

  • It was truly a treat to have a musician and entertainer of your caliber to Evergreen Middle School. Thank you for sharing your love for music and inspirational spirit with our students and staff. I hope we have another Noize experience in the future.

    Felicia Ross Principal, Evergreen Middle School
  • Wow, like Schoolhouse Rock when I was a kid! This was great!

    Lisa Coppola Recording Artist
  • Please thank Cory again for me - he is absolutely delightful. I loved how he made the kids laugh and completely engaged them for nearly an hour. There aren't too many entertainers who can do that. And the staff here loved having live music while they worked!

    Susan Weaver Acting Branch Librarian, Lafayette Library
  • Five stars. Addictive!! Very very fun!!

  • Thank YOU (and the Noizy Band) so much for performing for us Saturday. I got a lot of great feedback from visitors and members. I was amazed at how you could give 100% of your energy from start to finish. You guys rock!

  • FRESH... Dr. Noize puts on an interactive show for the whole family -- he plays the instruments and the kids supply the voices.

    San Francisco Chronicle Datebook Section
  • Love the CD's and Book!!! Congrats on the new additions to the repertoire.

    Sonja Palmer Executive Director, Music For Minors
  • A heck of an experience! What a show!

    Chris Johnson CO Noizemaker
  • I really liked how you gave up your time and came to our school and showed us how to make our own song. Disco dance!

    Kailey Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • Cool.

  • Your Phineas McBoof is really great. You have combined a family focused career with doing something meaningful. Lately I have been inspired by many people who live their life in search of meaning, they say they live longer, smile more often, and add joy to the world. You are definitely doing that!!!!...

    Gil Brady Principal, Pinewood Elementary School
  • Just finished listening to the CD. Brilliant. I love it. I want more. I was blown away by all the layers of sounds and just how incredibly slick and polished everything sounds. I love all the vocal performances you do along with the supporting characters. Janette rocks as Backbone. At the moment I think my favorite songs are “Don’t Monkey with My Heart” (because I'm a sucker for Beatlesque pop which you totally nailed) and "What My Robot Said" (I dig the fiddle, and I love the whole upbeat country vibe...very contagious.) You rock. I couldn't be more impressed...

  • Thanks so much for being a part of The Music Train! It was so much fun. You are a great performer! I'll definitely have you back! I had many comments on how much the families enjoyed you.

  • (We) had a lot of fun taking part in your show on Saturday. The kids were spectacular! Thank-you for your wonderful performance!

  • It’s hard to get more excited about music than Doctor Noize. This is a man on a mission – to help youngsters discover their “song of life” and have the courage to share it.

  • We just found time to really sit down and listen to "The Ballad of Phineas McBoof" and it is pure genius!! I love this! Your live solo shows are great, but the attention to detail and the broad instrumentation on this is fantastic! Wow!

    Brad Loucks Audio Engineer & CO Noizemaker
  • My son cannot get enough of the book, The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof... as well as its companion CD. Through the crazy adventures of Phineas the rock star monkey and his International Band of Misunderstood Geniuses, he's able to discover the wonder and joy of making music with friends. The story is fun to read. The illustrations are wonderful. And the music is a treat for both of us.

    Cory Fossum Bay Area Parent Magazine
  • My daughter came running through the house: "Daddy! Daddy! Placido the Flamingo and the opera guys know the Banana song!" Awesomeness.

    Adam Bock Scotland Noizemaker
  • High energy, one man masterpiece of storytelling and music.

    Anya Thomson The Music Train
  • I enjoyed checking out your Doctor Noize site and songs. That's a very cool job and I can't think of someone more appropriate to do it than you!

    Gary Scavone Asst. Professor of Music Technology McGill University
  • Congratulations on (yet more) deserved success!

    Steven LeBeau Northern CA Noizemaker & Powerpop Songwriter
  • You're an inspiration, and I mean that very honestly. It's so awesome to see someone doing what they really want to do in life and succeeding at it.

    Kathy Gould CO Noizemaker
  • Peripatetic musical maven Phineas McBoof (who happens to be a monkey) has formed a new orchestra in this newest installment of the series written and composed by Cory Cullinan. Here, the McBoof saga continues in a wacky -- and unexpectedly informative -- musical adventure in two acts introducing listeners to the worlds of opera and the symphony, with jazz, hip-hop, Broadway and, specifically, Beethoven thrown into the mix.

    Lynne Heffley Parents' Choice
  • I just received the CD of Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony.  My husband and I are enjoying it soooooo much. It is just great.  We think John McVeigh is pretty Great too!

  • Strong aesthetic, quick paced, catchy song.

    Chandromeda Online Noizemaker
  • My daughter and son love your CD!!!!!!!!!

    Caroline Trebowski Colantuno Northern CA Noizemaker
  • 5 Stars for Grammaropolis. Not only does my second-grader come home from school and put this album on repeat, singing along with the lyrics while she does her homework, but her 3-year-old sister is picking them up too! And because of this album my oldest put "conjunction" and "interjection" on her bonus spelling list this week. This is educational kids' music that parents can enjoy too! Comedic sketches, a variety of musical genres, and a parody of public radio and Fresh air's Terry Gross--can a parent looking for tolerable kids music ask for anything more?

    Bakonewsie iTunes Review
  • I'd just clicked on your Dr Noize web page to tell you how much my 3 kids love your CD (it's the current fave for all car rides and last night they were singing "Banana, Banana" at the top of their lungs)

    Cara McCandless PA Noizemaker
  • Musical styles range from rock, hip-hop, and polka to rap, blues, and show tunes. The vocals are very good, accompanied by terrific instrumental performances on electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass, piano, harmonica, saxophone, synths, electronic drums and percussion, whistle, congas, cabasa, and cowbell. Elementary arts teachers can liven up their lessons with this fun production.

  • Just wanted to let you know that our daughter Allison loves your CD, The Ballad of Phineas McBoof! She loves to dance around to it :).

    Jana Lowe Northern CA Noizemaker
  • Amazing entertainment for kids. I bought this for my son, who will turn 4 this summer. He has basically been playing it non-stop for about a week now. He adores it, and has a special robot dance he does everytime Riley is on. He dances, he sings, he laughs, and he constantly requests to hear it in the car when we go places. It's very listenable for adults as well; the Beatles/general rock references are intriguing and, like Sesame Street or The Muppet Show, many of the jokes are targeted at adults/parents. I'd absolutely recommend this to anyone with young kids...

  • I just told my son Rohan that your birthday was on Thursday and he replied, "I wanna go see Dr. Noize. I like him." Followed immediately by "I like Nemo" (he was playing with a Nemo toy at the time). Seriously, whenever your name comes up, he talks about what fun you were... 🙂 Also, one other anecdote you may find amusing... Rohan often requests we "play Dr. Noize" in the car and always insists on starting with "Banana." So, needless to say the tune is running through my head frequently. So, one day (can't remember what triggered it), I started singing "Obama, Obama, Obama" to the Banana tune and Rohan got quite upset, insisting that I "sing it the right way!!"

    Kim Zabora WA Noizemaker & Mom of the November Noizemaker Of The Month
  • I've been meaning to tell you: the CD rocks! What a fun thing. Can't wait to hear the next installment and, perchance, be a part of it...

    Anton Schwartz Billboard Charting Jazz Great (yes, Anton will be featured again on the next CD…)
  • A while ago my son and I were driving around with Kids' Place Live on our Sirius/XM radio when we heard that they were playing The Return in its entirety.  I can't tell you what a thrill it was for us to hear "us" on the radio -- especially my son's line about "a hat."  Wow!  The CD is very fun and cool.

  • Cullinan released his first book in January. Its plot mirrors the adventures of Phineas McBoof, which are chronicled on his debut album. The illustrations will be familiar to anyone who visits the Dr. Noize website or has flipped through the liner notes of the The Ballad of Phineas McBoof CD. As a new author, Cullinan has taken a unique approach to promotion. He plays an acoustic mini-show (as he did yesterday) at his “readings” and then engages the audience in a rewriting of its ending.

  • You talented sweetie!! (The boys') Grandmother called last week from Washington. She emoted about the hit of their party...your books and thoughtful personalized inscriptions. They were thrilled and most impressed with your ingenuity. So much so she called from the car while going from one party venue to another. Thank you for giving them such a memorable memory and gift.

    Tammy Tossy Northern CA Noizemaker
  • I stumbled on your site because I was looking for books with the name Phineas in them as odd as that sounds. We are expecting our second boy and we plan to name him Phineas. Our older son Jack loves to read books with his name in them and I was just looking to see what was out there. To my suprise I came across Phineas McBoof and was quite amazed at what a great story it is and I listened to the music and loved it instantly. Now I can’t help but tell everyone about your books and music.

    Traci PA Noizemaker
  • For the kindie rocker who wants more than just the music, Doctor Noize (aka Cory Cullinan) has created a transmedia property around ‘Phineas McBoof.’ The colorful character creations of his music are brought to life on the page, kicking off a new kid’s property to watch out for.

  • I like your music and your books. Thanks!

    Gavin Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • It's just so cool. This universe of Dr.Noize and his band of Misunderstood geniuses that you've created. You are one of a kind!! And so is your band of misunderstood genuises:) Have you thought of ever making a cartoon series out of them?

  • My nephews in Tennessee LOVE the CD and the book.

  • Great book! Very creative story that kids will absolutely love, especially if you also order the companion music CD that features all of the songs from the story.

  • 5 out of 5 stars -- Such a GREAT book. It keeps little ones interested and with the CD they enjoy it even more. Very well written, to me it resembled Dr. Seuss and I absolutely loved the story and the silliness of it. We also bought the CD on a separate occassion which makes the book come alive. My 4 yr. old loves it! Hope Dr. Noize comes to the East Coast some time so we can go see him. Reminds me of old radio shows with the sound effects and story.

  • At dinner they all go around and say what their favorite part of the day was. The girl announced that her favorite part of the day was hanging out together reading your books and giggling about your zany cast of characters. Apparently they insisted on multiple re-reads of the books that night. So, there you go, you touched two more little kidlets. Just beautiful.

    Katrina CA Noizemaker
  • Cory Cullinan, the musician/genius/madman behind Doctor Noize is both a very funny and a very loquacious man. The interview below, which was conducted in late December, was even longer what's printed below. I left out jokes and I left out even more of the obvious passion Cullinan brings to his unique family music project.

    Stefan Shepherd Zooglobble & NPR "Kids music worth sharing"
  • Wish you could have seen the smile on Ethan's face when I surprised him with the Phineas book tonight. It was like Bono walked in the room or something. We read it before bed and he was in a trance. Congrats on such a great book - mad props to both you and Christian. I wanted to say that now before I feel differently after the 199th reading.

  • As original as children's entertainment gets...  The dialogue and interplay between the characters is charming and funny.  The story... also teaches listeners about the instruments.

    Jon Paulson Bananas iTunes review
  • Five stars. Hard to put down, and still humming the tune. This is a really fun game for kids of all ages. Lots of fun to pick up and play but hard to master, so it keeps you coming back. The music is awesome and the game itself is visually appealing to look at. Highly recommend. You'll love it.

  • Cory Cullinan is all right I guess, but his children are genius. Check out the documentary his oldest made about the making of "Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony." Hang in there until the end...around 21:17 you'll hear my favorite moment of the recording, and hear the story about how it came to be. I can't get over how incredible this music is! And, I can't get over the orchestra...they hit it out of the park!

  • Wow, like Schoolhouse Rock when I was a kid! This was great!

    Lisa Coppola Recording Artist
  • Dr. Noize, the mad genius behind the rock-opera The Ballad of Phineas McBoof, breaks down the new single from version 2 of his debut album by talking about Vivaldi, syncopation, and ancient chord progressions.  He’s encouraged to dance like Justin Bieber, but he encourages us to listen to a wide range of musical genres.  This is pretty funny.

    Jeff Bogle Out With The Kids
  • Yesterday, or the day before, my son and I were talking about manners. I can't remember what led into it, but we were discussing how it was not polite to laugh at someone. Arjun then countered with "yes, but you can laugh at someone if they are doing funny things. Like Dr. Noize does funny things. You can laugh at him!" I don't even know where that came from... but I assured him that yes, it was OK to laugh at you... 😉 Keep laughing and inspiring others to do so...

    Kim Zabora WA Noizemaker

  • Doctor Noize is a busy guy. Not only has he just released The Return of Phineas McBoof, his second album about the title character, and he coaches his daughters' soccer team, but on March 4, he's releasing Grammaropolis, an album about, ummmm... grammar? Yes, it's Jane Jacobs meets "Weird Al" Yankovic meets the inevitable Schoolhouse Rock reference. Except that, I think it's safe to say, none of those made Flock of Seagulls reference. OK, maybe Al.

  • Hi Dr. Cory Noize, and I do mean NOIZE... That was a fabulous show you put on at CSMA. My two grandchildren loved all of it, especially the dancing. Annika laughed the loudest every time you were scared and ran off the stage. You are very silly and haven't grown up yet. That is a good thing. They didn't want to leave... I didn't want to leave either! So nice of you to do that benefit. You bring a lot of joy to small girls and boys. Keep up your energy and fun--it is contagious.

  • It's exciting because this will be the most ambitious, fun and original youth concert we've done to date-it's the first time we've reached out to involve a guest artist like Dr. Noize. We'll be playing some very familiar selections like Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, and we'll also be playing short original works written specifically for the concert by Dr. Noize. It's a great way to introduce kids to symphonic music.

    Keith Herritt Executive Director North State Symphony
  • Several years ago I taught in northern California with a guy named Cory Cullinan, a music teacher there. He left teaching a while back to go on to a successful career as a children's music composer and performer. The guy is very talented, very dependable, very intelligent, very entertaining, and kids love him.

  • My kids are IN his performance, in Denver, all weekend this weekend! The music is amazing. He is awesome! The show was amazing! I hope for the best for the whole endeavor.

    Mary Moye Monroe CO Noizemaker
  • The symphony concerts we performed with Doctor Noize were spectacular! I have never seen kids respond with so much enthusiasm to a classical music concert. He's fun, funny and irreverent. His gift for inspiring kids is unparalleled.

    Kyle Pickett Conductor North State Symphony & Juneau Symphony
  • Awesome, amazing show!!! You rock!

    Elizabeth Billups Acres Green Elementary Discovery Program PTO Director
  • The shows were fun... the kids liked them, including the kids in the orchestra! Thanks for the fun!

  • It was a very great performance... we all enjoyed learning about the orchestra so much!

    Natasha CO Noizemaker On "Phineas McBoof Crashes The Symphony"
  • It was great fun to work with you and to be a part of something so worthwhile. It’s possible that our performance was the first orchestra experience for many of those children and, let’s hope, it’s the start of a lifelong love of music.

    Jacinda Bouton Conductor, Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra
  • Doctor Noize makes classical music fun for kids.

    Lydia Rueger Colorado Parent Magazine
  • I've said this before, so excuse me if I sound like a broken record, but I think what you're doing to bring orchestra and music theatre to young listeners is admirable, important, and awesome. 🙂

    Andy Z Award-winning children's recording artist
  • Great two concerts. It was nice to see it all come together, complete with good crowds both days! Although, I'm pretty sure there are some broken windows at Lone Tree Arts Center from the high pitched kids screaming on Friday. Lol.

    Joy Pearson Violinist, Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra
  • Awesome performances this week, Dr. Noize! The kids are still abuzz with excitement about the shows! You have done an amazing job with this symphony project!

  • Thank you so much for encouraging our kids! I do hear many great comments from the audience at the end of shows. One of our parents said you should get the shows to the stages in China! Yeah, I am sure the China parents and kids would love to greet Phineas McBoof and his folks! Thank you so much for your great contributions to the children around the globe!

    Ling Chen Parent of one of the child stars onstage in "The Ballad of Phineas McBoof"
  • I enjoyed the show soooo much. I loved the Dr. Noize character. He reminded me of you!  Hmmmm.

    Kathy Bryant CA Noizemaker
  • Last performance – and sold out house. The kids all made a special thanks to you at the end of the show, telling the audience how awesome it was to work with you. It was very sweet. And a really great last performance. It really came together."

    Marieke Gaboury Director, Palo Alto Children's Theatre's “East of the Sun, West of the Moon”
  • (Our nephew who played Phineas McBoof) SO loved being part of this and all your inspired music and story.

    John Mathews CA Noizemaker & Uncle of Theatrical Production Cast Member
  • Our goal at the Children’s Theatre is to present stories that engage our audiences.  We are honored to collaborate with a composer of Cullinan’s experience, imagination, and musical skill directing his talents toward fostering new work for young audiences.

    Judge Luckey Managing Artistic Director, Palo Alto Children's Theatre
  • If you have been cajoling your kids into liking Beethoven and Mozart, coaxing them into practicing piano and/or violin, but all they want are Pokémon-go or Minecraft, then please take your kids to the Doctor Noize musical "The Ballad of Phineas McBoof." Cory Cullinan, a.k.a. Doctor Noize, is a Stanford-educated music major and a father of two daughters, but his dream has been to share his love for music with the kids. Commissioned by the Palo Alto Children's Theatre, Doctor Noize adapted his Phineas McBoof books and album into a new musical. Don't miss this very special show!

    Ling Chen Chinese-language blogger in Silicon Valley
  • These kids (in the show) are amazing! And so happy. LOVE. Kids can do *anything*. You're a force for good, Cory Cullinan.

    Lori Henriques Grammy-nominated children's musician
  • It's now being picked up by theater groups. All to teach kids about music. How about doing something useful, Cory?

  • Awesome!

Teaching & Learning

  • It was truly a treat to have a musician and entertainer of your caliber to Evergreen Middle School. Thank you for sharing your love for music and inspirational spirit with our students and staff. I hope we have another Noize experience in the future.

    Felicia Ross Principal, Evergreen Middle School
  • I recently read "The Last Lecture," which was so poignant... I thought a lot of Doctor Noize. His energy and how he affected and influenced people, students, and colleagues reminded me of you. I wish nothing but the best for Dr. Noize and your future career. I also think you would be an amazing teacher at a higher level of education, and thought you should know that I think that.

    Leslie Pelinka OR Noizemaker & Pediatrician
  • I have had the privilege of being taught by Mr. Cullinan for two full semesters during my freshman and sophomore years at my high school. I still find it next to impossible to imagine just how much stamina and willpower and strength Mr. C commands; I have so much respect for him. In my mind, a hero is not necessarily someone who has saved my life, or rescued me from danger, or radically changed my life. Mr. C is a hero simply because he has given me, however unintentionally, the gift of inspiration. I can only aspire to simulate his remarkable qualities in my own life; but I shall try.

  • I want to play “Banana” for my kids on a guitar. Now that I’ve memorized all the words, what are the chords for guitar?

  • Thank you for making a song with us it was really funny somtimes because you made me laugh and was very fun.

    Emilee Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • I am a high school English teacher in a small coastal town called Bunbury, in Western Australia. I have been trying to make grammar interesting for my class of Year 9 students who are classified as 'at risk' because of low literacy skills. They are absolutely fantastic students who make my days funny, interesting and sometimes challenging. Lucky for them (and me) I love what I do. I came across your fabulous Grammaropolis YouTube productions and have ordered the CD. I can't wait to introduce it to my students. I love your work and what you are doing to help kids.

  • My husband is a big fan of Dr. Noize after attending a concert with our kids through Music for Minors. He has been a MfM docent for the last 5 years+ and loves getting our own kids (and others) to love music as much as he does.

    Cari Pang Chen Northern CA Noizemaker
  • Thank you for coming to the school for teaching us how to record a song. I hope you become your dream. Sincerely, Dennis.

    Dennis Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • Dr. Noize, I like your drumming! From your biggest fan.

    Garrett Student, Evergreen Middle School
  • Thank you for writing a song with us. Here's a picture of the Discoball guy.

    Jacob Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • Every time he does it, I tell myself I should tell you. Finally, this time I will. For the umpteenth time, when I went into his bedroom to ask how school and homework are going, Polo jumps up from his work and animatedly begins telling stories about your class. He resets his CD player to a specific track from The Messiah and goes into what makes that part so appealing to him, then, after another moment, says enthusiastically, “He’s such a great teacher!” and “Did you know it’s a round? He had us sing Row Row Row Your Boat to show us what a fugue is!” This, plus more about you at the keyboard, in front of the class, etc., goes on for about 10 minutes before I remind him that I didn’t come in to disturb his homework or distract him, just to check in… "Oh yeah…” he’ll say as he heads back into his room (his retelling includes coming out to pick out some melodies on the piano). I couldn’t keep it in because his increasing love of music is creditable solely to you and it makes me very, very happy. And if I were you, I’d sure want to know that what I do and how I do it is making a very big difference. Thank you.

    Jeannine Black Uffelman Northern CA Mom of one of Dr. Noize's former students
  • The amazing Doctor Noize chats up a storm on Zooglobble. Terrific insights.

  • Hi! Thank you! Thank you for making a song for us. You are relly Cool. Bye!

    Madelyn Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • The program went exactly as outlined in our application. Over 900 children and 350 adults attended the performances, and a lucky few were even called up on stage to sing, dance and “chomp” along with the music. Attendance at the Family Concert was an impressive 50% youths under 18. The concerts were so successful that we have decided to bring Doctor Noize back for an expanded Music in the Schools program and additional Family Concert. We would like to have Doctor Noize himself visit each of the elementary schools during a week-long residency. We’ve become such a fan of Doctor Noize that we are also helping him to schedule appearances in neighboring Southeast Alaska communities next spring.

  • Dr. Noize, this is Sean from Reno, the one that did the break dancing, I want you to know I keep talking to everyone about your show, I really enjoyed it, and my mom said I can take piano lessons.

  • Thank you for coming to our school and helping us wright a song and the lirics.

  • Thank you for coming to Eagle Ridge. I liked your dance moves and the beat to the song. Your singer, Jalen...

    Jalen Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • Last week my small elementary school in San Bruno, California had the rich experience of a Dr. Noize assembly. From the onset of the program to its conclusion the students were engaged, delighted, and involved. Cory displays a high level of spirit, energy, and gregariousness that is highly infectious. It is one week later and the students continue to ask when Dr. Noize will return.

    Skip Johnson Principal, El Crystal Elementary School (read the complete letter)
  • I recently read "The Last Lecture," which was so poignant I found it quite haunting, but that isn't the point. The point is that in reading the book, and then searching YouTube for video of Randy Pausch and his lecture and then (heartbreakingly) his memorial service, I thought a lot of Cory. His energy and how he affected and influenced people, students, and colleagues reminded me of you. I wish nothing but the best for Dr. Noize and his future career. I also think you would be an amazing teacher at a higher level of education, and thought you should know that I think that.

  • Thank you to everyone involved for the wonderful Dr. Noize show last week to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Everyone had such a great time and when it was all said and done, the Food Bank has an additional $715 to feed the hungry in our community. This translated into 2,860 meals, which is a very significant contribution in the fight against hunger.

    Michele Isaac Teacher, Pinewood School
  • Hubboy... (tears streaming down my face) the video of Kaia's Song made my day as I was lying here feeling sorry for myself and wishing my sore throat would go away and bug someone else. Then Doctor Noize made his 'wake-up, you dummy, and thank the heavens above that all you have is a goofy cold today' house-call. Thank you, thank you for that. You are such inspiration... truly.

  • Everyone had a great time and we raised $740 for Treyton's Field Of Dreams & Connor's playground!

  • What a tremendous opportunity for our students to experience your creativity and musical talents! Plasencia Elementary School and Magnet currently serves about 900 students, many of whom are low income and minority children from the surrounding neighborhoods of Echo Park, Temple/Beaudry, Silverlake, and Koreatown.  As with many LAUSD schools, Plasencia Elementary School and Math-Science Magnet have very limited funds for enrichment programs. Thank you, again!

    Vickie Mendoza Board Member, Plasencia Elementary School and Math-Science Magnet
  • I've had really positive feedback from people who attended. Some are still emotional about the "Kaia" song and Brian's duet with you. Very poignant. And really a great touchstone to remember this community of support that is there for them. Cory, you are an excellent performer. It was a privilege to hear your work 2x over the weekend. Here's what a mom wrote to me, "Dr. Noize is so good and creative that Cassidy still remembers how he sings. She's been making those funny songs and sounds to me since yesterday." Gotta love it.

    Debbie Stauffer Leader of Las Madres & Co-Organizer of the Benefit Concert For Kaia Emery
  • We raised over $3,800 at the Benefit Concert for Kaia Emery, a wonderful girl who's mom recently passed away. Kaia is June's Noizemaker Of The Month! Watch the video of Kaia's Song, improvised with a packed audience of Geniuses at my alma mater Stanford.

    Doctor Noize After our first big Giving Back Show
  • Children's artist Cory Cullinan (aka Doctor Noize) has pledged to identify one monthly performance from his interactive, educational musical experience for children as a charitable Doctor Noize Giving Back show. The idea evolved from a recent Mothers Day benefit concert Cullinan organized in Palo Alto, Calif., to raise funds for a 3-year-old who lost her mother.

  • A big thank you to Dr. Noize... He gave a wonderful book reading and music performance for the kids. We had lots of fun dancing and laughing.

    Stephanie Leeper Teacher, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for giving such a great show. In total we managed to raise HK$13,790 (US $1,768) for "Bring Me A Book" which is fantastic plus the feedback from parents (and children alike) has been wonderful and very positive indeed. In fact, everyone wants to know when you’ll be back to do another show!

And, my dear, you played a huge role in that success. You now have an army of new fans. You were so inspiring, dynamic, funny, and got folks so jazzed about music. You are the MFM poster child and embody the fact our mission works!

  • You are an extremely busy person so I feel so blessed that you are willing to do this concert for us. We are confident it will be a great night! We are all so excited! With the money raised, we plan on splitting the proceeds for both Treyton's and Connor's memorial projects. In Treyton's name, we are fundraising to build a baseball field in Whitewater which will be called Treyton's Field of Dreams. Connor's memorial will be a playground in Jefferson. Thanks again for all that you are doing!

    Kiffen Madden-Lunsford Teacher, Plasencia Elementary School and Math-Science Magnet
  • i was just looking through your website again... and watched the video of the kaia song that you did at the show. i'm not sure i ever told you properly how amazing that was. i know it was a little overwhelming for kaia but i think she enjoyed it too. but maybe more significantly, it was a really amazing way to get all those people to express their love for her. it was a really cool thing to be a part of aside from the fact that i am her dad. being her dad too, wow...so very cool. so anyway, thanks again for that. the show was great, of course, but that little impromptu bit for her specifically was above and beyond.

Doc's Thoughts

  • In the electronic media age, mastery of the written word is an increasingly rare skill.  I’m thrilled to team with acclaimed young adult author Coert Voorhees — Mayor Of Grammaropolis — to produce a musical for all ages celebrating the power of words on equal footing with the power of music.

    Doctor Noize CEO, Creative Director & Performing Artist of Doctor Noize Inc.
  • Orchestral music is the most adventurous and colorful music in the world.  Kids and newcomers are the most adventurous and colorful audience in the world, because their minds are not yet made up.  As young fine arts audiences in the digital age are increasingly elusive, it’s imperative that those of us who want to preserve the art form we love design and perform symphony shows that specifically appeal to new audiences.

  • I wrote and recorded The Ballad of Phineas McBoof when I was a high school music teacher, documentary film composer, and new parent.  Basically, I wrote what I’d want to listen to with my own kids.  To my great delight, other parents, educators and kids agreed with me.  And thus Doctor Noize was born.

  • As my own kids have become increasingly involved in musical theatre productions, I've become more fascinated with bringing my works theatrically to the stage.  It allows me to connect with my past as a teacher and Music Director for shows like Into The Woods.  Musical theatre is a wonderful creative outlet for kids to perform and watch alike, and a delightful medium to write and compose for.  It feels like coming home.
