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

  • I have listened to GRAMMAROPOLIS! It's a great project.  Many congratulations to you!

  • 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 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!!"

  • I love my Doctor Noize guitar pick chain. I can hardly wait to wear it to Doctor Noize and a U2 concerts!

  • 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.

  • I shalt not play. Except… in my head… over and over and over again…!! ...and again. I still have it stuck in there. Major earworm!!

  • 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.

  • Well... 500 kids under the age of 10, 30 members of the North State Symphony and all their instruments, Dr. Noize, and me in a shark hat...all in a hot, sticky gym... still buzzing!!! Did I dream that? No words can thank you enough.. all of you! Kyle W. Pickett, and all of the players... great day!

  • You did such a FANTASTIC job putting Ms. Theresa (Super Cool) together - what a special gift to Theresa (and to us all) to share! Thank you so much for sharing your talents!

    Janet CO Power Mom
  • The energetic former Pinewood School music teacher received quite a bit of buzz for his recording and book, “The Ballad of Phineas McBoof.” The story tells of a monkey singer who becomes so popular his admirers scream over his performances – a parallel to the Beatles’ heyday. Disillusioned, he travels to another land, where he meets up with new musicians and friends. As Phineas meets each new musician, another instrument is added to the mix, showing children how musical sounds come together.

  • I wanted to tell you what an excellent job you did on the concert with the Lone Tree Symphony. I was amazed at how quickly the kids picked up on your classical music lesson and loved it as well. Coordination with the symphony was delightful, especially how they all played along with the work. Never forget Conductor Jacinda Bouton with a pink tail. I have talked about the performance in several groups and in fact briefed Council the next week. They were amazed when I mentioned how the symphony players stood up and down to your musical arrangements. You are doing tremendous work and I wish you continued success for the lessons you are teaching.

  • 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 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...

  • Cory Cullinan has every reason to smile. His song "Banana" off his debut children's album The Ballad of Phineas McBoof, clinched the No. 1 spot on XM Radio's Kids Chart last fall. Zany as it sounds, his music isn't just for kids... His concept, "rock-opera for kids," combined with high-level musicianship (the album features artists who have worked with Santana and Huey Lewis, as well as opera singer Nathan Gunn) appeals to a more mature set... The hidden payoff? "I get to work with people of my maturity level, which is the 2-to-11 set."

  • I do have to tell you how much of a positive impact you and your music have had on (my son). He knows every song word for word and we've listened to it every day in the car since we bought the CD. He sings your songs ALL the time.

    Teresa Taylor CO Noizemaker
  • Have been meaning to write you. Two hundred years from now, the name Cullinan may be as famous as Prokofiev. Your works are fun, funny and delight children. As well as adults. Since childhood I have enjoyed classical music. I'm just thrilled that you are bringing along another generation, maybe many new generations in the future. I've been delighted to see it all come to fruition.  To me, you are a genius to have accomplished this feat. It has been thrilling to me to be to watch.

    Barbara Conley CA Noizemaker
  • 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.
