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 290 PreK-12 schools, camps, and social service organizations daily and climbing, touching 100,000+ students in a calming and focusing ritual.

Mindful Music Moments works in partnership with world-class performing arts organizations including The Cleveland OrchestraCincinnati SymphonyColumbus SymphonyCincinnati OperaCincinnati Chamber OrchestraDallas Symphony OrchestraPittsburgh Musician Cares Fund (PSO)Musica SierraSan Diego Symphony and San Francisco Symphony to bring daily mindfulness and classical music to schools and community places, generally delivered during announcements.
