Music can have a powerful effect on the brain, and so can one’s mindset. Growth mindset is the belief that one’s abilities, talents, and skills can be improved through education and hard work. In this post, we’re combining music and growth mindset in one amazing playlist. We asked the Free Spirit staff to share songs that fit the theme of growth mindset. From “Itsy Bitsy Spider” to “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty, you’ll find over 40 songs that can help develop a growth mindset. Use our playlist to create one for your classroom—or for yourself! Not all songs are appropriate for all ages. Listen to the songs first and use your judgment before sharing in the classroom.
