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 still 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.
The substance of the assembly, the electronic and digital generation of music based upon the whimsical character, a monkey named Phineas McBoof, although the intended purpose of the program, is not what the students have stated or perhaps even understood was the intended learning experience. Their perceptions include fun, energy, their excited involvement, and the observance of a talented individual. The younger students just laughed and laughed. The older students laughed as well but they also were ‘hooked’ by the technology devices Dr. Noize used to engage and entertain them.
I encourage you to include Dr. Noize (Cory Cullinan) in your repertoire of entertainment audiences. He will become a highly sought after booking. If you need further information or wish to discuss my experience with Dr. Noize, do not hesitate to call or send me an email.

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
