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!

If you are wondering if an intensive with Kara is worth it, the answer is an unequivocal yes.
I had no idea that my singing voice had everything to do with my personal ability to express myself whole heartedly in all areas of my life. As a film director, communication is key, specificity is paramount to getting the vision in my head out and onto film.
I had no idea when I began Kara's Voice Your Essence™ program "for fun" that it would have such an impact on my work and in my personal life, it was a result that was completely unexpected.
I travel a great deal. I am thrilled that Kara is live streaming her workshops and coaching sessions so that I can train where ever I am in the world, be it LA, NY, or Berlin.
Kara is the real deal, you will learn to use your "voice" in more ways than you could ever imagine.

As I began training with Kara Johnstad, I never dreamed how much my life would change!
What a voice! What an incredibly fulfilling feeling to experience individual classes.
Coaching without constraint, without pressure and aiming for goals. It was for me then and remains for me today, an unbelievable experience! I have gained the confidence to know, that my voice is not only heard, but that in can inspire. If one feels, the voice open up.
I don’t know how Kara does it, but she does it. She keeps a perfect balance between so free, so possible, so accurate and so important. I have become familiar with various schools of training, even in NYC the home of musical. I have never felt so uplifted at any of those schools as I have with Kara.
She has supported me in ALL phases of my artistic path. Voice building, interpretation, repertoire, performance, songwriting, goal setting, album production and recently I have ventured into writing books and that too, with great success! I am now a published author and working on my third novel! WOW ! It just keeps getting better.
Yes, Kara motivates and inspires. As a coach and mentor, she removes all doubts.
