    School Of Voice specializes in Voice Training and Vocal Coaching. We also love teaching how to play an instrument and offer a variety of private music lessons. We have a diverse staff of highly qualified music instructors to match the diversity of our students. Please visit our INSTRUMENTS page for a current list of the types of music lessons available.
    While there is no “right” age to start music lessons, most children will begin between the ages of 5 and 7. Due to a small hand size, piano and violin lessons are most common at this age range. We also offer group classes for children (ages 4-6 and 6-12), for example the Mini Singer-Songwriters is a fun, hands-on class for kids who adore making music. As children get older, they may like to take the opportunity to try out new or larger instruments, such as the guitar, drums or cello. Trying a variety of instruments can help expand a musician’s capabilities and can be very mentally stimulating. For adults, it’s never too late to become the musician you want to be! Please visit our Programs page for a current list of the types of music lessons available.
    Music and voice lessons can start at any age! For adults, it’s never too late to start lessons. Whether your goal is to scratch “Learn to Play Guitar” off your bucket-list or perform your favorite songs for someone special, School Of Voice can help every step of the way! Plan in time for regular practice and exploring music. You will make great progress in playing your instrument in no time. As you practice and become a more experienced musician, making music enjoyable, not only to your ear but to others’ as well, is a very rewarding experience. Taking music lessons from an experienced instructor who knows how to assess individual skill levels, and tailor your lessons to your particular ambitions, will help you meet your goals much faster.

    YES! All programs at the School Of Voice are taught by teachers who speak English and German. As a matter of fact, most of our teachers are multi-lingual.
    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.
    Students who speak neither English nor German as a mother tongue also thrive in our school program, and can rapidly acquire additional language competency.
    We teach in the morning, at lunchtime, in the afternoon, in the evening, and at the weekend. With the exception of Kara Johnstad's private sessions and classes, there are no regular classes on Berlin school holidays (including bridge days), and public holidays. Typically, based on a calendar year, the academic year consists of 36 weekly teaching units.
    School Of Voice students typically take lessons on a weekly basis. Most teachers suggest this, especially for kids and teens, because it gives the student sufficient amount of time to practice the material given during the lesson. As students advance, it is not uncommon to increase the frequency of lessons.
    Kids Music classes are held in small groups of no more than 10 kids. A typical class size is 6 kids.
    Regular practice is the most effective. Short and sweet, we suggest, daily practice of 10-15 minutes. To beginn, it is recommended, smaller children practice together with their parents.
    We organize student performances regularly, as well as larger concerts, like the School Of Voice SINGERS' NIGHT. See: Calendar.
