For Kids & Teens

Opera for All Ages

Music is for everyone! Until we’re able to once again host in-person classes, camps, sing-alongs, vocal training, and more, we’ve created online versions for a variety of ages.

Do-It-yourself Aria Workshop (Ages 6–12)

Join our Youth & Family Programs Manager Sara Litchfied for a journey into the world of opera! In this free five-video course, you’ll sing, act, create original opera characters, and write a song inspired by your character. This course for ages 6–12 is a great way to exercise your musical and creative muscles from the safety of home.
