Who Is Tickle Tune Typhoon?

Who is TTT?

Music Makers, Consummate Creators, and Lovers of All Living Things

TTT was founded in 1980 with a shared vision—to live in a world where hope and humanity prevail. The founders knew this change must start with our youth. With every song sung, every word written, and every dance danced, they aspire to help give children love, respect, and opportunities to learn and experience joy. May we all know and grow in peace. 


What's All This About A New Album?

New Album

While Tickle Tune may have moved on from producing live performances, founder Dennis Westphall never stopped creating. Over the last 20 years, Dennis has written some of his best tunes. He called in his old bandmates and, with the help of producer extraordinaire, Charlie Wilson of Sonic Zen Records, recorded a brand new album for a new generation – Born to Be Child - undeniably TTT’s best album yet! 


Three Cheers for TTT!
