  • I have had lessons for over 15 years with various teachers in Los Angeles and after all that time and all those teachers no one has ever improved my voice more quickly than Kara. I am already a professional singer but I knew I could be better. I never knew how to reach those higher standards of singing until now. Kara made such a difference even after the first week! I heard my range improve and it was already easier to sing with less effort. Her technique is clear and precise and it really works. I intend to continue my lessons with Kara with great anticipation!

  • I got to know Kara Johnstad as a very sensitive and professional coach. She draws on a vast repertoire of techniques, psychological knowledge, and spiritual wisdom according to the requirements of the moment and demonstrates how to pass it on in a wonderful way. Her philosophy is that training and coaching can only be successful if they are tailored specifically to each individual, promote personal strengths, joy of learning and encourage longterm personal change. The best thing about Kara Johnstad is of course her credibility. Did you ever hear of any other vocal coach with such a strong, sensitive and flexible voice? Pure Hollywood! Kara Johnstad - A must for any singer!
