Program Combining Mindfulness and Music

Imagine an entire school—students, teachers, and administrators—taking time each morning to turn inward together and listen to a brief mindfulness prompt and world-class music. Mindful Music Moments works in partnership with world-class performing arts organizations, such as The Cleveland Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony, Columbus Association for the Performing Arts, Austin Opera, and Starting Arts, to bring daily mindfulness and classical music to schools, generally delivered during announcements. Primary, elementary, middle, and high school participants enjoy an average of four minutes per audio recording. A Day 1 sample recording, “Fanfare for the Common Man,” is accessible online. The recordings for Days 2–5 of each week are shorter. Character strength tie-ins, fun facts, and prompts are offered for each week of music, and materials are available for teachers to use for repetition later in the day, if they wish. Also included are training for the entire staff on the science of brain development and the deep effectiveness of mindfulness and music listening, as well as communication to parents on how they can repeat the program at home. The website provides details about pricing and financial support for schools to help with funding the program.
