Doc's Thoughts

  • Thank you so much for coming to my class for a songwriting workshop! I really loved it! It was fun when you made Ms. Tait laugh. I also loved the song! Thanks again! Do you like my cursive?

    Sidney Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • With notable participation by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Kyle Pickett, and professional opera singers Isabel Leonard, Nathan Gunn (both Grammy winners) and John McVeigh, this very ambitious 2-CD album combines action-packed storytelling with music education -- instrumentation, phrasing, harmony, rhythm, musical jokes -- and messages about friendship, self-confidence, and empowerment.

  • We've been wearing out the new CD. Whole family loves it and my kids is quoting the songs!

    Ben Evans KY Noizemaker & YERT Director Voice of Bottomus The Hip Popotamus & Lenny Long Tail
  • 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.

    Stefan Shepherd Zooglobble & NPR "Kids music worth sharing"
  • Kick start the year with a few of lil's favorite finds... Got cabin fever? Get the kids in an outside state of mind with Doctor Noize's musical adventure. The Ballad of Phineas McBoof will entertain your tots with an imaginative excursion where they will encounter bass-playing hippopotamuses and yodeling lizards. "Mommy's Little Helper"
  • Sweet! Good Job!... Hittin replay...Now!

  • Wow... you drew a huge, happy crowd. Congratulations and once again, many thanks for giving Bus Barn the privilege of hosting your performances.

    Leslie Farrington Business Manager Bus Barn Theater
  • Thanks for donating your time last weekend. You've definitely created some new fans with my nephews. They haven't stopped talking about you since the show.

    Karen Bowen Literacy Coalition of Colorado
  • You should know that you made it into (my daughter's) bedtime prayers. She goes through a long list of "god blesses" and she recently added to the list (her pediatrician) and "that funny doctor that sings" (you). It took me a while to figure out who she was talking about, but then she mentioned Phineas McBoof and that cleared things up.

    Suzanne Bennett Northern CA Noizemaker
  • I'm glad you enjoyed performing at Yahoo! We loved having you there. We definitely want to do it again next year.

  • Students will enjoy the fun Grammaropolis song featuring all of the characters of Grammaropolis. Watch the videos and listen to the song as a class to delve deeper into the character traits that each part of speech has.

  • Thank you! I really enjoyed making the song, coming up with lerics/words, and finding the subject. It was awesome! I appreceated it very much. Thank you so much please come again. PS Disco Monkey! Zombie style.

    Claire Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • 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
  • Like the best of children's literature and music, the CD operates on many levels simultaneously: beneath the bubbling surface of pure kiddy appeal runs an undercurrent of musical and lyric allusion aimed at delighting the parents of the young. I defy you to find me another children's album with any piece in seven.

    David Yearsley Professor of Music, Cornell University (read the full published review)
  • Our grandsons (and we) love your Phineas McBoof CD. We are wearing it out.

  • 5 Stars for The Return Of Phineas McBoof. My kids LOVE this album and the first one.

    Wesside iTunes Review
  • 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
  • "Schools teach students how to perform music and music history, but they don't give students the opportunity to create music of their own" said Cory Cullinan, aka Doctor Noize. "Every other subject allows you to practice creating, there English lit classes and then there's creative writing, there's art history classes and then art classes, where you get to actually make things" said Cullinan, a former high school teacher. But when you get to music, there's chorus and band. That's it. I want kids to start thinking, "I could write a song?" So rather than just quietly listening to Cullinan perform his various instruments including keyboards, saxophone and, of course, a kazoo kids will also get to help arrange and record a song. "(The kids are) sort of shocked when they are able to just get up and do it", he said. "They think there's this wall between them and music. I don't think we encourage kids enough to be creative musically. Kids just like to be part of the creative process."

  • Things we like -- Dr. Noize, a.k.a. Los Altos native and Stanford graduate Cory Cullinan, is back with his third installment following the adventures of a musical monkey. The two-CD set Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony introduces kids to orchestral music, opera, music history and more, with performances by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Grammy-winning opera singers Isabel Leonard and Nathan Gunn.

  • Hi Doctor Noize. I like Phineas McBoof. My favorite song is Banana Banana. I like Riley the Robot. Bye-bye...

  • Hi!! Just got the Phineas McBoof CD today - WOW! What fun. My 5 year old son actually sat still to listen. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoy it! Sounds like you had a lot of fun making it too. Looking forward to the next one!

    Susan Myers Noizemaker
  • Congratulations not only on this latest accomplishment, but also on your consistently fine work of the past.

    Vicki Woo Northern CA Noizemaker
  • Banana,banana,banana... Everytime my kids are in my car, they scream and demand me to turn on your cd. Now I have to listen to your voice at least twice a day and my head is constantly filled with bananas! Thanks,

    Dave Kim Northern CA Noizemaker
  • Our family loves music and I have years of piano lessons in my past. However, there are times when I struggle to add music to our homeschool. Finding something that is FUN while embedded with a lot of learning potential is great. Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony is one such item.  This particular CD has plenty of silly to entertain while weaving in a lot of musical education.


    Laura Day by Day in Our World — Learning & Embracing Life as a Family
  • Your project touched me on a gut level. The work you all put into this is beyond imaginable and I can't believe you did it. So worth it. The music is delightful and important. It's respectful, i.e. not dumbed down at all.

    Tor Hyams Grammy-nominated songwriter
  • Thanks for a cool rock opera for the kids! It's going to sound awesome on the air!

    Mindy Thomas XM Kids Radio Program Director & Host (hear her interview with Doctor Noize here)
  • I admire your work so much!!  I love your ideas with Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony.. these are great ideas to bring about consciousness of quality music, discipline, team work and harmony to kids.. and I am completely for it.  This is a stupendous album of brilliant sounds that merge into one seamless, fun whole that is as entertaining to kids as it is to adults. The production is top-notch, the singers marvelous, the orchestral arrangement out of this world! The compositions are so very likable, its like being an audience at the theatre watching the grand show unfold. Marvelous storytelling!!

    Ricky Kej Grammy-award winning composer & musical peace ambassador of India
  • Five Stars for Grammaropolis. Absolutely delightful! Fun and informative CD destined to entertain and educate kids (of all ages)!! A must-have collection for your family! Loved it!

  • For a mama bunny who doesn’t like music she sure sings well. This is amazing. Seriously! We just finished the whole thing. Amazing! You are a talented man. What an accomplishment. Congratulations.

  • Agenda Recommends --> This enormously silly CD is perfect for little ones... But it's also educational! Like Peter and the Wolf but more fun, this wildly danceable story-album introduces kids to musical instruments, styles, and composition.

    New York Entertainment Agenda Vulture
  • INCREDIBLE project. *** RECOMMENDED *** This will hit waves with you and your children - An influential project to connect kids back to classical! Great #Cause & delivery for Best Children's Album.

    Lilac Sheer Americana recording artist
  • 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...

  • So close your eyes, turn off your TV, and imagine yourself in The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof... Did you love it or did you love it?  I know, I loved it too!

  • Doctor Noize recorded his new double album with a symphony… I highly recommend you check it out. It’s super duper cool, and on this one there’s operatic singing, strings, there’s horns, it’s… it’s really, really good.

    Jeff Bogle “Out With The Kids Music Monthly Podcast”
  • Several kids at our house just listened to and watched the Grammaropolis video. They loved it so much, we listened to it three more times! Every child listened in wrapped attention with beaming smiles... As a parent, I love the painless education that comes for visually delightful and musically intriguing videos. What a crowd pleaser!

  • Dr. Noize, you are soooo clever.

    Anita Nichols CA Noizemaker
  • My daughter was excited to get your email. She is now a big fan; she loves your CD and book too. Thanks a lot for doing the Kaia concert. It was really cool of you and fun and we'll all have a lot of good memories from that day. Calling Brian up to do the Beatles song was very touching as well.

    Melissa Northern CA Noizemaker
  • During readings taken from his book (The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof), Cullinan performs songs and rewrites the ending with the audience by adding a new character playing a new musical instrument. Through all of his artistic endeavors, Cullinan delivers a pro-music message that is creative, educational and fun.

    Laurel Fishman (read the full article)
  • 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
  • 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?

    Yasemin Kimyacioglu Turkish Noizemaker!!!
  • And even though (my son) didn't dance, he was laughing the whole time. 😉 He couldn't wait to show his brother his new book, too. He was reading it on the way home and on into the evening.

    Suzanne Wells Southern CA Noizemaker
  • I like your music and your books. Thanks!

    Gavin Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • 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.

    Yoshi Kato San Jose Mercury News (read the full article)
  • We read the book multiple times a day and usually the CD once a day. You are a big hit w/ the kids. (They) love the book!

    Dorothy Bowie Northern 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"
  • Cory's work reminds me of Mr. Rogers. Recently, I reread "The World According to Mr. Rogers" and the book mentions the best thing you can do is help/teach children. Perhaps it has occurred to Cory to have a TV show for children. The world would benefit from it.

    Judy & Warren McCandless The Ocean (This is no misprint... They actually live on a boat!)
  • 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
  • His two books – “The Ballad of Phineas McBoof” and “The Return of Phineas McBoof” – and CDs are jam-packed with crazy characters, including Phineas, a cheeky monkey. “It’s a story about McBoof – based on Paul McCartney – and his International Band of Misunderstood Geniuses,” said Cullinan from his home in Colorado, as his two daughters, Sidney Grace, 9, and Riley Max, 7, made noise in the background. “What the band has in common is their openness to trying all kinds of music.”

    Eren Göknar Los Altos Town Crier (read the full article)
  • You have an incredible story telling talent! We are really enjoying your cd and book I marvel at your creative ability... We are looking forward to part two of Phineas's adventures.

  • Awesome! The artwork is gorgeous.

    Jay Kadis Principal Recording Engineer & Lecturer, Stanford Center for Computer Research in Music & Acoustics
  • 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.

    Dave Wooldridge CA Noizemaker
  • Dr. Noize... you crazy cat! Thank you for the personalized Ballad of Phineas McBoof - (my daughter) LOVES it!!! I also appreciate all the Jazz references that you made, as that is my favorite music. Keep up the good work.

The music is awesome and the game itself is visually appealing to look at. Highly recommend. You'll love it.

  • "THE BALLAD OF PHINEAS McBOOF" is very impressive! It was my pleasure to listen. Doctor Noize's utterly joyous song "Banana" is awesome! I loved the superb performance of the drums. The vocals are fantastic and go so well with the animation. I loved watching this song too... it's sure to be a hit with the kids.

    Ricky Kej Grammy-Winning Composer, Indian Peace Ambassador & #1 Charting Billboard 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.

  • 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.

    Chris Johnson CO Noizemaker
  • In his music for children, he creates layers and loops and invites his young audience members to help make multi-track songs.

  • Boy oh boy did we have a ball at both concerts. Yes... we were also at the Bus Barn and my son decided that it was really *his* concert. He had such a wonderful experience. BTW, your 7-beat/5-beat measure from "Don't Be Silly" has been on my mind. The only other musician I have heard really have fun with that is Joe Jackson - from his Night and Day album. I think the song is Target - and it always gets me counting and amazed at the tempo.... Again, you are on to something super special. We really enjoy your work, and we'll enjoy future concerts... There will be many fans inviting you and welcoming you back.

    Jeff Budd Arts Council, Sitka, AK
  • Dr. Noize rocks! The kids and I went to see our good friend Dr. Noize today, and he was mega-fantastic. This bootleg video of the concert doesn't do him justice (sorry), but it does give you a sense of the kind of energy he puts into his shows. One of my favorite things about Dr. N (yes - we're actually that close) is that he seamlessly weaves music education into his concerts. You can't help but walk away feeling more musically inclined, and he even lets the kids rock-out with his equipment at the end of the show. We predict that Dr. Noize is going to be B-I-G, BIG! And we hope everyone spreads the word. Rock on, Dr.

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

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

  • 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.

Theatrical Productions

  • 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
  • I enjoyed the show soooo much. I loved the Dr. Noize character. He reminded me of you!  Hmmmm.

    Lori Henriques Grammy-nominated children's musician
  • I was so grateful to work on this with you, Cory. The music and live sound really change the energy of the production, and make it feel so much more full and engaging. And you were so great with the kids. Thank you so much.

    Marieke Gaboury Director, Palo Alto Children's Theatre's "East of the Sun, West of the Moon"

    Sheila Wheeler Washington Noizemaker
  • 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"
  • It's now being picked up by theater groups. All to teach kids about music. How about doing something useful, Cory?

    George Mitsuoka CO Noizemaker
  • 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.

Teaching & Learning

  • 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.

  • Dear Doctor Noize... Who are your kazoo influences?

    Kazoo Enthusiast (Yes, that is how this post was signed...)
  • Brilliant! I have always marveled at and learned from the way you lead by being so authentically yourself! Bravo!

    Lise Schickel Goddard CA Noizemaker
  • 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
  • We randomly fell in line with Dr. Noize several years back at one of the shows on the Penninsula, and made it to several shows thereafter. You also did a fundraiser for a dear friend of mine's daughter - Kaia Emery. I've enjoyed following your success as you take over the world - ah, move into the digital domain. We're enjoying the new songs, and your unique crazy brand of awesome music ed. Peace.

    Muffie Waterman Northern CA Noizemaker
  • 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.

  • I loved the presentation you gave yestery.

  • Thank you! I really enjoyed making the song, coming up with lerics/words, and finding the subject. It was awesome! I appreceated it very much. Thank you so much please come again. PS Disco Monkey! Zombie style.

    Claire Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • 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.

  • Thank you Cory for coming to teach us about music! I enjoyed making music. Thanks again. Bye!

  • 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.

  • Wow… that was an amazing speech!

  • Thank you so much for your excellent presentation for the Douglas-Elbert Music Teachers Association. The teachers have mentioned to me how much they enjoyed your information that you you shared!

    Dr. Steve Fiess Piano Teacher, Douglas Elbert County Music Teachers Association
  • I wanted to let you know that Jeffrey has been offered a music scholarship at California Lutheran University. When we visited we set up a last minute audition with the music director. Jeffrey brought his file of music and sang for him. He, Dr. Wyant, told him on the spot that they’d be offering him a scholarship, and followed up with a very nice letter. What was important to him was Jeffrey’s expression and precision, and that he had sung pieces in several languages. Needless to say, we are very pleased, and owe you our thanks for getting him involved in Pinewood Singers and challenging them with such wonderful pieces.

    Brenda Opine Mother of Doctor Noize's former high school student
  • 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
  • Did your kids come home talking about Beethoven like mine did today?!? Hope so! Dr. Noize is generously taking time to introduce our kids to the world of classical music -- and how it relates to modern, pop music. Now go ask your kids what they learned today ... if you are like me, you'll learn something new!

    Elizabeth Billups Acres Green Elementary Discovery Program PTO Director
  • 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 for all you did to provide the Pinewood Singers with such an amazing performance “road trip”!!! Christopher had a fabulous time! He told me that the singing — the performances, the preparation, the bus trips, the group time….all that was even more fun than Disneyland (which, of course was a great time, too!) He loves being part of this group. Honestly, I think if you wanted him to dress in leiderhosen and yodel, you could probably get him to do that, too….!!! You have an amazing gift for connecting with these teenagers, and we are SO lucky to have you in their school lives. Thank you, thank you, and CONGRATULATIONS on the awards as well!!

    Jeannette Beeger Mother of Doctor Noize's former high school student

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Thank you so much for being our Featured Speaker at Mardi Gras Night. We raised over $100,000 in one night for Bay Area school music programs! 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Jocelyn Lantrip Public Relations Officer, Food Bank of Northern Nevada
  • The concert on Sunday for Kaia Emery was a huge success. We had more than 250 people come, the kids had a great time, Kaia really seemed to enjoy herself, and the community raised a significant amount of money for her future.

  • 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.

    Laurel Fishman (read the full article)
  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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, 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.

  • Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony was intentionally created as a complete work of musical theatre — no shortcuts — with highly sophisticated and challenging music.  Kids have the most fun and gain the most pride, satisfaction, and confidence when they’re reaching for things that cause them to stretch and learn.  So we’ve made an album that’s funny and fun and dramatic and sad and happy and crazy and colorful, in ways that only authentic orchestral music and musical theatre can be.

  • As our technology develops at a rapid pace, our intellectual focus level and moral development — why we do what we do — is at greater and greater risk.  Purpose matters.  Sophistication matters.  Let’s make sure we don’t flip our internal processors off every time we switch our external processors on.

  • I’ve been given the rare opportunity to build a series for the most adventurous audience in the world — kids and the adults who belong to them.  I can’t imagine giving the next generation anything but my best, so I treat them as the budding creative geniuses they can be and the world needs.

    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.

    Doctor Noize CEO, Creative Director & Performing Artist of Doctor Noize Inc.
  • It’s imperative that we reteach our culture to be curious and intellectual.  As a lifelong student and teacher — and a parent and children’s musician in the modern technology age — I consider it my duty to impart a love of learning and the joy of building a sophisticated intellect to the next generation.
