“I would like to highly recommend Matt Burmeister / aka: Professor Yippit for any libraries in the state that are looking for new talent on the childrenâ€™s entertainment scene. Matt and his band were great! His songs had positive, kid-friendly messages. His voice is really nice â€“ and the music had everyone from the children to the grandparents rocking along and wanting more. One of my board members who came to help run a carnival game commented that the sound quality was excellent â€“ never overpowering as â€œrockâ€ music can often be.” - Regina George - Covington Library Director
“Professor Yippit & Friends is not just a show, it's an experience! It's entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. And, the music and energy is so contagious, that you'll find yourself singing and laughing along." Chris & Jason Carr The Bean Cup Coffee Shop www. thebeancup. com” - The Bean Cup
“â€œMatt has been a dream to work withâ€....Plus the songs are so good, Matt is a brilliant young song writerâ€.” - Tim Spradlin - vocalist
“My son loves your CD!! He takes his little guitar and plays along!! - he's 3 1/2 and loves rock'n'roll...I found you through myspace and happened to click on your page - LOVED Rearrange - totally cool!!! You did a great job..!!” - Mike Schuler
“Over the last couple of days, I've been checking out the profiles of people and bands who write and perform children's music. I truly believe that your lyrics and music are the best I've heard (there are a couple others who are really good - but I think you're going to be the next big children's musician).............I love the song "Rearrange". This song is incredible!”

“I was just driving home from church, by myself, no kids in the car, to pick something up and go right back. About half way home, I realized that I was singing along with Professor Yippit!!! I have worked in the childcare/preschool "industry" for 14 years now and I am the mother of 3 crazy and wonderful kids, and I think that Professor Yippit is the BEST children's album ever. I love it. It's not just for small kids. My 7 and 9 year olds love it too. They will randomly break out in a song from the C.D. It's so cool to here them singing "Don't Give Up" or "Use Your Imagination". I can tell them those things 'til I'm blue in the face, but they here it better put to music. I love the songs because they aren't just cutesy songs about nothing, they have meaning and thought in them. Thanks for wonderful entertainment for my kids (and me)!!!!” - Stacey G.
“5 out of 5 stars Delicate yet powerful! Reviewer: AKS This is an awesome CD. It's not crazy loud and doesn't have weird animal sounds, but still retains that exotic jungle feel. It's perfect as background for reading etc. as it's not too overwhelming. It's easy to listen to, especially on a lazy, hot Sunday afternoon... :) I hope you'll like it as much as I do!” - AKS
“Thank you very much for performing at FamJam. Everyone thought you were great and a wonderful addition to the event. Thanks for sharing your time and talent.” - Meagan Labriola, Director of Development

“I had a great turn out. Even better than I expected. The children and adults really enjoy the music” - Julie Rudolph - Owner of The Blue Kangaroo Bookstore
“A melodic mix of friendly, sonic, jungle textures. Reviewer: Brandon Cope This CD can make the jungle anybody's friend. A great blend of various percussion instuments with the kids in mind. Buy this CD and step into its sonic jungle!" Safari-like musical journey full of well-intentioned fun Reviewer: Joe Ross ..... I can see how his music would be popular at a Myrtle Beach attraction. ......... Burmeister's music does have a frolicsome feeling, and the simple melodic passages do convey a safari-like journey full of good spirited and well-intentioned fun." "The web site was awsome and I would recommend it to anyone. Reviewer: Michael D. Norman The CD was very upbeat and easy to listen to, would recommend it to anyone that is interesting in nature." Very Cool Reviewer: Maddie I picked this up at a zoo I visited. I was bouncing my head to the grooves the whole time I was there. I don't really even like this type of music but this one is very cool!! A good find.”
