Mindful Music Moments
Starting Arts has an exciting, new program to tell you about: Mindful Music Moments. This is a powerful, daily listening experience for students. This online music program is designed to be played over the loudspeaker at the start of the school day or right after lunch for 5 minutes. If the PA system is not available, classroom teachers can participate individually in their classrooms using a computer.
Currently, more than 80 schools, representing more than 50,000 students in grades K-12 in 3 states are experiencing this magical, life-changing musical experience. The cost for one entire school to receive this program for one year is $1,000.
Some of the ways Mindful Music Moments programs have proven effective for schools are:
- Reduction in reported anxiety (5th graders, nearly 30% reduction)
- Reduction in number of disciplinary visits to office (elementary school)
- Creation of a calm and focused start to the school day (anecdotal, nearly all participants)
- Development of a student’s relationship to classical music (Art partners report student enthusiasm at education concerts)
Be sure to check out the PBS National News Story about this cutting-edge program.
