Mindful Music Moments

Imagine an entire school -- students, teachers and administrators -- taking time each morning to turn inward together, listen to a brief mindfulness prompt and world class music.

That's Mindful Music Moments, now in more than 150  PreK-12 schools, camps and social service organizations daily and climbing, touching 70,000+ students in a calming and focusing ritual.

See us on PBS NewsHour.

Mindful Music Moments works in partnership with world-class performing arts organizations including The Cleveland Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony, Columbus Symphony, Cincinnati OperaColumbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA)Opera Columbus, Austin Opera and Starting Arts to bring daily mindfulness and classical music to schools and community places, generally delivered during announcements.
