"With “Positrons” as the band’s name and Energetic as the album’s title, you expect a set of uplifting, up-tempo music, and Marsha Goodman-Wood and her group definitely delivers the goods. " 

"Even more impressive here are the songs where Marsha transforms sophisticated concepts into understandable educational points wrapped up in catchy melodies. "

NAPPA Awards

"Marsha and the Positrons are experts in making learning into a fun adventure. Not only are we discovering new things through their clever lyrics, but the masterful melodies draw listeners into a wonderful world of catchy tunes and toe-tapping beats. Marsha's songs explore everything from astronomy to nature and wildlife. Her albums are full of discussion starters that answer those burning questions, ignite curiosity, and keep us dancing and singing along."

— Stephanie Nhan, Beppie's Beats

“Goodman-Wood was no ordinary children's singer...She was very, very good. Her clear voice reminded me of Carole King. . . Her stage presence was lively without being grating, a highly delicate balance for a children's performer.”

We’ll Eat You Up, We Love You So

“I can attest: Parents will want to dance along with their grooving brood!" — Baltimore Fishbowl
