About Kara S.

Hello potential students!

My name is Kara. I teach voice and piano to students of all ages online and in Doylestown, PA. Thank you so much for viewing my profile.

I went to University of the Arts for my Bachelor's and Master's degree. I am a life-long learner and just started another Master's degree at Westminster Choir College. I teach classical, musical theater, pop, R&B, jazz, rock and country music.

I would love to have you join my studio. I am passionate about helping all of my students become the best singers and pianists they can be!

Please let me know if you have any questions - I would be happy to answer them.

- Kara

My teenager son loves his singing lessons with Kara. He has been going for a couple months and I have noticed a rapid improvement in his singing. I highly recommend Kara she is a great teacher and very friendly. My son is always looking forward to his next lesson, it is the highlight of his week. Thank you so much Kara for the great work you do!

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

I enjoyed our first voice lesson last week. Kara is a gifted music professional with great teaching ability. She has the ability to pick up on things that help facilitate the learning process. Great job!

Kara taught me singing for over a year when she lived in Pennsylvania. She not only helped me with technique, but helped me find confidence in myself. Now I sing in front of my family and friends without getting so nervous.
