Magical Music for Life, founded in 1999, is a nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to better the lives of children through the impactful and extraordinary power of music. They accomplish this by developing and producing a wide range of musical projects that deliver positive, inspirational, and educational messages to children and their families. Through their songs, performances, and projects their goal is to engage children and transform the way they understand themselves, others, and the world around them.
May is water safety month and Magical Music for Life’s TUNES IN TIMES SQUARE is raising funds to complete the production of their new water safety and basic swimming skills album and continue their outreach efforts for children with and without autism and special needs. Following the success of their free album and musical revue, A Day in the Life of a Child, which teaches social and life skills to children with and without autism and other special needs, Magical Music was asked to write and produce a water safety teaching album. They are excited to take on this project, because drowning is a major cause of death and injury for young children. For children with autism through the age of 14 and other children under 4, drowning is the primary cause of death; and it is the second leading cause of death for children under 14. And for every child who drowns, there are 15 emergency room admissions resulting in brain related injuries. Magical Music’s mission is to better the lives of children through the impactful and extraordinary power of music. Through these water safety songs which will be available for free, Magical Music strives to help save lives in the future.
