Music for Kids with Special Needs

Kerry Fenster has a new CD, Songs About Us, and it’s designed to help kids with special needs develop basic social and developmental skills.

Fenster’s work with children with autism at The Help Group, an innovative organization serving people with special needs, ignited his passion to make music for these youngsters. “Families with children who have special needs deserve music they can all enjoy and learn from together,” says composer Fenster of Songs About Us.

This 2016 Parent’s Choice Approved and NAPPA Award Winner CD aims to educate, empower and entertain those with special needs while delivering practical tools to improve their regular interactions with others. Songs About Us, the first in a series from the label Muzic School, is a five-song EP featuring four original songs plus an updated version of Pete Townshend’s “Pinball Wizard,” a lively tribute to the uniquely gifted.

Songs About Us is available on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby.com and other popular online retailers as a digital download for $6.99 or physical CD for $12. Both formats include song lyrics for lively sing-alongs and improved comprehension. A portion of all net proceeds will be donated to various children’s charities. muzicschool.com.
