Here’s what real people from all walks of life are saying about Doctor Noize.


  • 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.

  • Bright, cheerful, and very entertaining.

  • 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!

  • I knew you were amazing, but had no idea just how amazing you are!! I'm referring to your incredible talent while staying so humble. You are a great role model for our youth.

  • The title character is a simian rock superstar who flees his life of fame to seek his musical roots. His journey of self-discovery is told in a clever combination of acted dialogue and genre-spanning music -- everything from rollicking ska beats to jazz kazoo.

  • My son loves your song "Banana"

    Dave Slater Northern CA Noizemaker
  • The cd is great! I would love to record again, just let me know...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • My son just came home and said, "You missed all the funny!" Gotta love it!

    Kathy Gould CO Noizemaker
  • CONGRATULATIONS, WOW!!! what an amazing performance. The boys are so pumped up and have been singing and eating Bananas ever since we got home. So, if you ever decide to write a song about prunes, we may have problems. Today, I finally burned the CD from my itunes library onto a disc-Now we can jam to it in the car. Thanks so much for a really fun day...

    Emmy Dobyns CO Noizemaker
  • 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.

  • The energy that Cory generates is right on the edge of manic. Kids wanted to be on stage, and we had to pull them back.

    Vicki Reeder Board of Directors President, Bus Barn Theater
  • 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!

    Abbie Ehorn Music Teacher, Evergreen Elementary School
  • Thank you again for working with us on our event. If the voice of the child is is the measure of success then it was a resounding ... yea, whoopee, fantastic! The adults enjoyed as well.

    Jennifer Landers University Of Denver Fisher Early Learning Center
  • Thank you for coming to our class to teach about music.

    Previn Student, Eagle Ridge Elementary School
  • 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
  • What a fun album! Kinda like a Sergeant Peppers for kids. I really enjoyed how eclectic it is in terms of styles and format. It's unique, well-written and produced, and it just sounds like you're having fun.

    Steve Weeks Award Winning Children’s Musician
  • 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.

  • 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!
