Mindful Music Reaches Beyond the Classroom for Family Participation

Posted on 09/03/19 by Abby in Mindful Music Moments

We believe having a personal or family mindfulness practice is essential to combat the day-to-day stress of life, heightened by our dependence on the digital world. We are listening to people like Tristan Harris and our best health care systems about mindfulness and health.

That is why we are bolstering the program to now support family mindfulness practices. Families of participating MMM schools have received access to weekly playlists and activities to experience Mindful Music at home. This family mindfulness practice might include listening together and answering prompts or identifying character strengths. Examples include, "How are we a brave family?" inspired by Copland’s Fanfare. Or "Would you want to go to outer space and why?" inspired by Williams' Star Wars Theme.

Here is a sample of a Parent communication from Mindful Music Moments.
