Ages 2-5 (and an adult caregiver)


At Lyric Arts Academy our workshops are led by friendly and experienced teaching artists and feature smaller class sizes for plenty of one-on-one interaction with both child and caregiver.

In our Story Theater workshops, we work with our students to create their own modest, unique stage adaptations of picture books. 

In Music & Movement classes, we engage our bodies to feel the music with dance and laughter.

The goal is to provide parent and child bonding time through the art of storytelling and music.
