• SARS-CoV-2

  • Dear students, parents, and friends of the School Of Voice!

    We are very excited to finally open our doors again at School Of Voice. We are here for you in person again and can't wait to welcome old familiar faces as well as new ones to School Of Voice.

    We sincerely thank all of our loyal students, parents, and friends for their patience and support during the shutdown and are full of anticipation and energy to now get back on track together.

  • Please consult with your teachers about how to proceed so that you can work together to organize your way back to face-to-face classes.

    We are very much looking forward to finally making music with you in person again.

    With warm regards
    Kara Johnstad

     P.S. Many of you have found over the past few months that online instruction has its benefits. We continue to offer online classes via video stream, not only for students who are unable to get to their regularly scheduled private classes at our location due to unforeseen circumstances but increasingly for full-time online students from around the world.

  • Current requirements and hygiene regulations

    Our teachers and staff are there for you as soon as you show up "in person" for your class, freshly tested and demonstrably healthy - please do the same!
