Lomax, the Hound of Music is a 2008 American children's television series that uses puppets, humans, live music and animation. It aims to promote musical education for children ages 3–7, inspired by John Feierabend's "First Steps in Music" curriculum for music educators.[1] It was created by Christopher Cerf, Norman Stiles and Louise Gikow, and produced by Sirius Thinking, Ltd., Eyevox, Inc., and Connecticut Public Television. Lomax first aired on October 6, 2008 to positive reception from parents and critics.[2] It was initially announced that the series would premiere in 2007, but was instead released in 2008. The series ended on December 29, 2008. Upon conclusion, PBS lost the rights to the show and Sirius Thinking became the primary owner. In 2010, selected PBS stations announced that they would rerun the series for a short period of time.

Lomax, the Hound of Music follows the adventures of Lomax (named after American ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax), a good-natured, melody-obsessed puppet hound dog, his fluffy cat sidekick, Delta, and their human companion, Amy. The three travel across the United States of America on a steam train named the Melody Hound Express, and explore songs in different music genres and music styles.[1]
