Magda Reda

Magda Reda is a young composer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer-songwriter from Upper Egypt who is dedicated to music education for children with special needs. Originally drawn to music as a means of connecting with an autistic friend who loved playing the piano, she has continued this work through her current master’s research, which explores how music affects autistic individuals. In the past year, she collaborated on a global musical project at Glomus camp in Denmark, fostering connections between musicians from 28 countries, and was also recently selected for MuSHEqua, a music education and career development program for Egyptian women and girls. Magda actively uses music to address social issues in her community, providing companionship through performances for the elderly and training musicians with special needs.
