Reviews of "A Day in the Life of a Child" Album & Show



The Album


“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 Most of the music I use in the classroom is outdated so it is nice to have new options.”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


"It is about time musicians stepped up to produce music for a population of children that SO need it." ~ A music therapist


“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


"This is so perfect - it is just what is needed in the classroom. How wonderful that the songs have both an up tempo and a teaching version making it applicable for such a broad range of children." ~ A special education teacher


“I wanted to tell you how grateful we at Els for Autism all are for your support in making the event so special. Your CDs were a hit!” ~ Mary Kay Wilson, Els for Autism


“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



The Show


"I have not seen the kids so engaged by a performance as with this show and some of the kids who got up to dance were a surprise, because they would not normally do that." ~ Mary Ellen Betzler, Director of Education at Giant Steps School


"What a fantastic afternoon! Our students LOVE when you perform here and music is such an intricate part of so many of their programs!" ~ Kaitlin Hayes, Development Associate at Giant Steps School


"Thank you for bringing such an extraordinary performance to our school. Not only was the performance professional, but was inspiring to our students to see other students perform. The messaging was also superb." ~ Kathleen Gallagher, Educational Supervisor at Eagle Hill Southport


“ALL of the students in my classroom enjoyed the performance in February. All of the performers were engaging and seemed to truly enjoy performing. The performers were sensitive to the varying disabilities of the students who go to Giant Steps and made an effort to interact with them throughout the performance! I would love if they returned.” ~ Ashley Fumai, Special Education Teacher at Giant Steps School


"The performance was amazing. The kids and staff loved it. The songs were great, I wouldn't change a single thing! Your cast was spectacular!” ~ Brent Morton, School-Age Program Director at Country Childrens Center, Katonah, NY


“They did a wonderful job - the girls were all very professional, engaging, talented, and just overall a fun group. It was thoroughly enjoyed by both the students and the adults. Afterwards they were also so friendly and warm with interacting with our GS kids.” ~ Tara Buckman, OTR/L at Giant Steps School


“That was so cool!” “I liked that they are at our school.” “The best part was the dancing.” ~ Students at Giant Steps School


"We had the pleasure of welcoming the young singers of Magical Music for Life to the stage at our Western Connecticut Walk Now for Autism Speaks. They sang beautifully and the message of the songs and words meant so much to the autism community. We were honored to partner together.” ~ Lauren Amendola, Senior Director for Autism Speaks
