West Coast Steiner School: Class 2 Lyre making project


There is a beautiful tradition at West Coast Steiner School where parents craft a musical instrument called a lyre and gift it to their own child to mark the beginning of their musical journey.

This process of making the lyre is not just about the end product. It’s a journey that demonstrates to the students how a parent uses their will to complete the lyre, a task they may have never undertaken before. Learning new skills and achieving a beautiful instrument for a child is a wonderful gift. During a magical ceremony, Class 2 parents presented beautiful, handcrafted lyres to their children.

The students have already begun to learn to play the light and calming sounds of this ancient and unique instrument. Class 2 parents should feel very proud of the dedication and care they put into creating lyres for their children.
