• Our School

  • Welcome to Kara Johnstad School Of Voice

  • We give children, creative adults, and artists the musical education and tools to voice their essence and get their music heard. That is what we do! Being surrounded by music and creative people is a great way to spend your day.

    What's special about us: We are an artist-driven bi-lingual school in Berlin and prioritize what is sacred in self-expression. Our teachers make all the difference. They are international, multilingual, highly qualified and experienced, compassionate, soulful, and with a love for music, people, and the beauty of the voice.

  • Experience the power of voice and music. From singing to songwriting, creative writing, music, and mindfulness. Go beyond traditional music and voice studies. We offer professional training for kids, teens, and adults of all levels and abilities. Great for singers and non-singers alike.

    Dedicated professors, professional musicians, experienced artists, stage professionals, social educators, music therapists, non-medical practitioners and experts in various disciplines teach at the School Of Voice. Our regular performances are a highlight for students and teachers.

    Our studios are easy to find, centrally located in Berlin-Zehlendorf, near lots of schools for on-the-way-home lessons, and only a 3-minute walk from the Zehlendorf S-Bahn station.

    We also offer online lessons via video stream, not only for students who, due to unforeseen circumstances, can not get to their regular private lessons at our location, but increasingly to full-time online students from around the world.

    School Of Voice is a great place to meet people from the international community of Berlin, take part in holistic courses, learn a musical instrument and, not least, to benefit from the (DIY) artist development strategies of experienced mentors and professionals in the music industry.

  • Benefits of studying at Kara Johnstad School Of Voice:

    • Save time and driving.

      We are located within a 3 minute walk from the Zehlendorf S-Bahn station (20 min on S1 line from Friedrichstr., X10 express bus connections: 10 min to Ku`Damm).

    • 24/7 Overview in your Online Account

      YOU HAVE MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY - Holidays, bridging days, or vacation periods are not counted, and these lessons and classes remain in your account - You can cancel an upcoming appointment for free up to two days before and absences lasting several days up to 10 days in advance. This gives you ample time to plan for short vacations, business trips, family celebrations, or annual school vacations at your leisure 

    • Wander the shops, boutiques, and cafes on Teltower Damm.

      While your kids get better at playing music, you can run errands, shop or eat.

    • Near lots of schools for easy on-the-way-home lessons.

      We are near Nord-Grundschule, Freie Schule Anne-Sophie, Schadow Gymnasium, Droste-Hülshoff Schule, John F. Kennedy School, Berlin International School, and Berlin Brandenburg International School, just to name few of them.

    • We offer you the benefits of bilingualism.

      The ability to speak two or more languages is an essential skill in our modern global village! Bilingualism and the contact with foreign languages in the early years stimulate cognitive growth and the creative processes that all children share. Languages convey the aesthetic and values of cultures. Learning additional languages encourages International Mindedness, appreciation of other cultures and points of view, a fundamental precept of School Of Voice.

    • A thorough musical experience.

      Large, clean studios equipped with quality instruments, sheet music, artist chairs, music stands, dry-erase boards, metronomes, and computers to keep students engaged and motivated.

    • Watch your kids perform!

      We have regular recitals and other performance opportunities open to all students.

    • We value the time needed to get to know each other:

      Give us a try with a discounted first lesson. This is a good opportunity to find the best music school for your child, ask questions and see if the teacher and student are a good match.
