Mindful Music Moments (Pre-K through HS)

Mindful Mindful Music Moments is an easy to use, web-based program that combines classical music with mindfulness prompts delivered over the morning announcements in schools. It’s designed to reduce stress and anxiety, increase exposure to classical music, and start each school day with a period of calm and focus for the entire school community. The daily, 4 minute routine focuses on one classical music piece each week paired with mindfulness prompts that provide tangible tools for social/emotional well-being, brought to you by City Silence and The Cleveland Orchestra.
