The American Academy of Children’s Entertainment voted Dr. Music
“BEST MUSICAL RECORDING” of the year

 

 "Zippy melodies, backed by crackling electric guitar, are beguiling... clever..."
Parenting Magazine

 

"Captivating music and some excellent thoughts and perspectives on growing up."
Booklist

 

"Bright rockin' tunes predominate on this disc, the best of which is the goofy, inspired silliness infecting the title track."
New York Daily News

 

"Jonathan Sprout has one of the biggest guitar and drum sounds in children's music, but his high-energy recordings possess subtle charms as well...vocals are clearly understandable... lushly produced... packed with good stuff... exuberant."
Family Fun Magazine

 

"Jonathan Sprout cares about kids and music, and his love of both comes through in DR. MUSIC.... Highly produced with a fine rock orientation, he blends good advice with a mix of styles."
Kathy O'Connell, Metro Kids Magazine
Philadelphia, PA

 

"Wherever he goes, singer Jonathan Sprout stresses the value of hard work and patience to his audiences."
The Philadelphia Inquirer

 

"Great inspiring messages...loads of fun!"
Heartsong Review
Portland, OR

 

"This artist's unending creative vision has touched the hearts of over one million people....From the sweetly uplifting 'Patience' to the downright sidesplitting 'Wyatt Burp,' Sprout's top quality, no gimmick children's music is a memorable delight.”
New Age Retailer Magazine
Seattle, WA

 

“A refreshing upbeat collection of toe-tapping tunes. The hip contemporary arrangements defy you to sit still. Themes like self-esteem, bullies and babies are dealt with in creative musical ways, and some beautiful instrumentals tie this attractive package together. The Doctor is in!”
L.A. Parent Magazine

 

"When they're too old for Raffi and too young for Nine Inch Nails, Dr. Music is a nifty prescription: plugged-in-training-rock. Sprout's sophisticated-sounding songs approach worries ("Dancing," The Bully") and goofing around ("Wyatt Burp") with good humor and a good beat."
Radio Aahs Magazine
New York, NY

 

"Arguably the hardest rocking kids' artist out there."
Billboard Magazine

 

"...this artist's unending creative vision has touched the hearts of over one million people....From the sweetly uplifting 'Patience' to the downright sidesplitting 'Wyatt Burp,' Sprout's top quality, no gimmick children's music is a memorable delight.

"...a refreshing upbeat collection of fun, toe-tapping tunes. Hip contemporary themes like self-esteem or bullies are dealt with in creative musical ways. The Doctor is in!
Parents Express

 

“Jonathan Sprout whips out his prescription pad as general practitioner on 1994's Dr. Music, dosing up a country cure here (the goofy, gassy "Wyatt Burp"), some healing hip-hop there ("Games"), and even a restorative hard-rockin' number ("Patience"). As with Sprout's American Heroes, the music here is impressively and adventurously performed. Where many releases for kids rely on the hackneyed hokey-pokey to get them grooving, Sprout energetically insists that "we're gonna clap our hands / and sing along / and dance around / and rock & roll!" ("Here Comes the Show"). The songs' subjects aren't strictly for fun: "The Magic Word" recalls the door-opening power of the P word ("You know that people love it / That's the beauty of it"); "The Bully" bravely pokes past the thorny exterior of the cantankerous Bobby to blow his bad-boy cover ("From behind the tough disguise / Bobby has tears in his eyes"); and "Patience" is in praise of the starstruck Jamie, who has her sights set on becoming the next Hendrix but hunkers down to practice, practice, practice, "even when it isn't fun." In all, Sprout in a stethoscope works. If flat, uninspired, flimsily produced kids' music is what ails you, the doctor is in.
