  • This fictitious tale of a wayward musical genius, who also happens to be a monkey, is as original as children's entertainment gets The dialogue and interplay between the characters is charming and funny. The story, in addition to being extremely clever, also teaches listeners about the instruments being played, the sounds each makes and the variety of musical genres employed by the Misunderstood Geniuses. Oh, and there are terrific songs as well! The story is so endearing and funny. You will enjoy the musical adventure of The Ballad of Phineas McBoof as much as the story itself. One can envision Dr. Noize's creation becoming as adored as Morgan Taylor's Gustafer Yellowgold...

  • Of course, I just LOVE it when my son is so moved by songs and/or stories, and you've made something that is PERFECT for him. We were in the car - waaaay too late, after eating dinner at my parents' tonight - and started listening to your first disc, and my son could hardly come inside.

  • It's a fun story and there's a lot of thought and care put into the production. (Also, I kinda want to make "For The Children" required listening for anyone thinking of making music for kids.)

  • Kids are the most adventurous audience in the world.  Their enthusiasm makes us better listeners as parents and teachers.  It’s imperative that we bring kids positive energy and inspirational musical substance in shows.  They’re forming their minds; they’re forming their level of sophistication; they’re forming our future.

  • In his music for children, he creates layers and loops and invites his young audience members to help make multi-track songs. Seeing and hearing how each contribution, from percussion and bass to melody and harmony, adds to the whole, audience members get a new appreciation for a song's structure...

  • Over the past 6 years I have had the pleasure of mixing 3 records for children's music artist Doctor Noize. His music is smart, funny, educational and--perhaps best of all--enjoyable for parents. Through music and books he teaches kids about our greatest form of art, and all of the styles within. His albums involve the evolution of a story surrounding Phineas McBoof and his colorful bandmates and friends. They have been on quite the journey and the next installment may be the biggest and most important step yet: classical music. Doctor Noize has composed a symphony--for recording and live performance--to teach kids about the most sophisticated form of music there is. The piece has been performed multiple times with full orchestras and has been a great success. And now it's time to record it.

  • Really really wonderful. I went on and on about all the musical virtue I found in it, not just with regards to the Children's albums, but in general. Very beautifully put together.

  • Yesterday, or the day before, my son and I were talking about manners. I can't remember what led into it, but we were discussing how it was not polite to laugh at someone. Arjun then countered with "yes, but you can laugh at someone if they are doing funny things. Like Dr. Noize does funny things. You can laugh at him!" I don't even know where that came from... but I assured him that yes, it was OK to laugh at you... 😉 Keep laughing and inspiring others to do so...

  • THANK YOU!! The kids LOVED the final product and hopefully they get to do it again next year. I really enjoyed your workshop and would love to have you come to Saratoga next year as well!

  • Thanks for the fun afternoon in Fort Collins!! Very entertaining. We love your book too, thanks for the autograph!

    Brad Loucks CO Noizemaker
  • 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.
