Mindful Music Moments, a program to teach stress reduction and mindfulness techniques through classical music, served 14,000 students at 30 local schools and 10 preschools in 2020-2021. Each day students listen to four minutes of recorded classical music and relaxation prompts at the start of each school day during morning announcements. Part music appreciation and part stress-reduction techniques, the program offers insight on the composers and music history while taking a moment to calm students’ minds and prepare them to learn.
