Mindful Music for Schools

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, and Cincinnati Opera to bring daily mindfulness and classical music to schools and community places, generally delivered during announcements.

Our fast-growing list of participating primary, elementary, middle and high schools enjoy:

  • Ease of implementation with a fully turnkey, web-based program. New Web App makes access even easier.

  • Subscription allows for entire school community to have access to Mindful Music, including paraprofessionals, teachers, parents and students so the program can be the continuity piece for blended and/or digitial learning.

  • Average of 4 minutes per audio recording makes a powerful, impact ritual without sacrificing academic time. (Here is a Day 1 sample recording for Fanfare for the Common Man. Days 2-5 each week are shorter.)

  • Combination of mindfulness and music education with extraordinary arts partners.

  • Fast results in shifting school culture and the morning routine to a more calm, focused and balanced start to the school day.

  • Teachers are able to enjoy their own Mindful Music Moment along with their students.

  • Character Strength tie-ins, fun fact and prompts for each week of music.

  • Materials are available to teachers for repetition later in the day if they choose.

  • Inclusion of training for the entire staff on the science of brain development and the deep effectiveness of mindfulness and music listening.

  • Communication to parents how they can repeat the program at home.

  • For returning schools: $760 ($20 per week)
