Magical Music for Life, in keeping with its mission "to use music to better the lives of children," utilizes the power of music to deliver positive, inspirational, and educational messages to children and their families. As a way to help children in need, these productions are used to raise money and awareness for pediatric charities across the country. Also, these productions offer talented young singers in the tri-state area the opportunity, through the recording and performance of this music, to use their talents to help others.
The Magical Music songs, shows, and singing groups both entertain and educate. Equally important, they are designed to encourage an ongoing conversation between children and their parents as children begin to deal with life’s more challenging issues and develop as members of our community.
in each other is like a match in the night.
Pass it lit to another, and their candle will
Think of this candle as the spark of their dream
And help it to grow and gather up steam.
if everyone's candle was encouraged to glow,
And everyone's dreams were encouraged to grow,
Oh, what a wonderful world it would be,
Far brighter tomorrow, don't you see?
from "The Adventures of Zak"
In accordance with our mission, Magical Music had produced a wide variety of musical projects:
Touring shows with positive and inspirational messages to bolster self-esteem, encourage individualism, & thwart bullying have been written & performed.
An album and ongoing library of songs written specifically to meet the learning needs of children with autism and special needs, as well as all preschool children, has been made available free of charge on the web at www.magicalmusic.org.
Original songs written specifically for many major charities have been performed at charitable events throughout the northeast. Magical Music has produced several major concerts and raised thousands of dollars for children's charities. One of these concerts is its annual TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE in New York involving the Broadway community and talented young performers from the tri-state area.
The foundation’s music has been performed at numerous events, among which include The United Nations in support of the first World Autism Awareness Day, The White House Easter Egg Roll, Citifield, and the Tribeca Film Family Festival. Also, it has been performed in schools, pediatric hospitals, and the Boys and Girls Clubs.
Through its original music, the foundation strives to improve the lives of children and their families everywhere.
"A Day in the Life of a Child" ... “Great topics and I believe that kids learn best through music and the ideas you have for the CD are great! Most of the music I use in the classroom is outdated so it is nice to have new options.”
“I really like the teaching parts of the songs where the music and lyrics are slowed down to teach the kids the words. This is really helpful because the kids do like to sing along.”
Colleen Wattles, early childhood special education teacher
"A Day in the Life of a Child" ...“I love the CD! It is so cute. What I really love about it is it is little kids singing. That always makes my girls want to sing along or listen.”
Amy Aweida, mother of girls ages 2 and 5
Magical Music for Life ... "Once
in a while, there comes along a charitable organization
that really strikes a chord in the heart. Magical Music
has created a forum to help families share a rare combination
of musical excitement, positive life lessons, and at
the same time, be part of helping pediatric charities
in their own community! Magical Music uses the message
of music, which is often misused today, to reach beyond
the mind and into the soul with uplifting lyrics and

"A Day in the Life of a Child" ...“The songs are really great. Very upbeat and especially the “Just What I’m Feeling” song would be great for a social skills group for children on the spectrum. I think continuing to develop songs that could be incorporated into a social skills group would be great. ”
Carolyn, family therapist
"Russell, the Hermit Crab" ... Magical
Music has a passion and an unbelievable talent for communicating
some pretty tough topics about kids' character development
in a fun, sensory way that puts those important messages
right into the long term memory bank…the really great
stuff you reflect back on when a difficult personal situation

TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE ... “My daughter and I were walking by, thought we would stay for a song or two, and stayed for 3 hours.”
An audience member at TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE

A special education teacher
TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE ... "It was an amazing experience to sing in Times Square – in the heart of NYC. … people came to stay and watch, packing the grandstand, every seat, and place to stand. It was INCREDIBLE!!”
