School Of Voice offers a unique and age-appropriate program of instruction for children. Get your child started the right way, with the best vocal technique available! Kids are going to be singing anyway, so it makes sense to start them off right, with healthy, fun, and correct vocal development at the School Of Voice. Already after a few classes, your child will be comfortably singing 2 to 3 songs, basic beginning music concepts like rhythm, melody, tempo, pitch, and sound recognition, as well as body & mind relaxation techniques are introduced.
At School Of Voice we give your child the healthiest and most effective vocal training available- and we make it fun too!
Each child is different- some kids are ready for more intense training and development and others are simply exploring music for fun and enrichment. We meet the child where they are at their level of interest and development to encourage greater interest in music and singing.
Our Kids program is not like the typical voice lesson, which consists of singing a couple of random “warm-up” exercises and then singing a song several times with no plan for addressing vocal issues.
Our program meets the child where they are, and, while making singing fun, it is designed to specifically develop the voice in a healthy yet effective way. While we don’t believe in time-bound objectives in Singing for Kids, we do believe in having a plan and knowing where you eventually want to be.
We don’t just vocalize in lessons, we combine many playful singing exercises with basic yoga techniques and child-oriented meditations, and we learn singing songs, too!
We balance having fun and singing songs with clear objectives and specific exercises for vocal improvement. The balance of fun and work in each lesson varies with the age of the child and their personality.
By combining child and age appropriate Singing, Yoga, Dance, and Guided Meditations, your child will develop a newfound confidence and increased self-awareness.
Your child will learn how to connect with other children through the power of sound and voice and how to express their own uniqueness in the group. We are going to dance and clap our hands and have a lot of fun.
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!
