Mission Statement: Doctor Noize inspires creativity, curiosity and character through music, art and words.
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.Steve Bacharach Southern CA Teacher & Noizemaker
Chart-topping recording and performing artist Doctor Noize is many things: Stanford Music grad, Master of Recording Arts, commissioned composer for stage and screen, author, app creator, teacher, speaker, studio owner and philosophical goofball.
Doctor Noize’s catalog of family-focused recordings is known for its unique combination of exuberant joy, high-quality production, revered guest musicians, and narrative musical structure. Each album is an adventure balancing inspirational learning with positive storytelling and songwriting anyone can explore. His recordings and curricula teach instruments, music fundamentals, language, leadership, sustainability and more — all through the eyes of characters so engaging you won’t even realize you’re learning.
Known for his virtuosic one-man-band shows nationwide, The Doc sings and plays a host of instruments, which he uses to loop record and write songs with his audiences on the spot. His diverse performances range from acoustic shows and book readings in smaller venues to groundbreaking symphony performances such as his acclaimed work Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony introducing newcomers to the wide world of orchestral music.
Doctor Noize’s innovative learning curricula and workshops — developed through his Masters Portfolio on K-8 Recording Arts Education — draw on his lifetime of experience as a student, teacher, parent and musician. He’s a former award-winning high school Arts, Communication & Technology Department Head and current member of the Recording Arts teaching faculty at Regis University and the University of Colorado Denver (school year) and Stanford University (summers). He was elected to the Board of Governors of the Recording Academy (best known for the Grammys), where he served on both the Education Committee and the Producers & Engineers Committee.
Combined with his work as recording artist and stage / screen / multimedia composer Cory Cullinan, owner of production house Reach Studios, and writer on the adventures and insights of fatherhood, The Doc fuels himself with sources of inspiration that propel his drive for creativity, curiosity and character. Drawing on his open-minded approach, Doctor Noize and his main monkey Phineas McBoof have more experiences yet to share, as they continue on the journey to teach about music, words, and the world we love.
