How much are singing lessons?

They may also offer 30-minute lessons for a lower price. Or, they might require monthly tuition for ongoing classes. It depends on the voice coach. 

Contact vocal instructors near you to get a sense of how much singing lessons cost in your area.

What are singing lessons like?

Every voice coach may have a different style of teaching, but here are a few things you'll likely experience during a singing lesson: 

  • Explaining to the instructor what you want to improve on.
  • Going through a few breathing and riff exercises.
  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

How many singing lessons do I need?

It depends on what you’re hoping to accomplish with your singing lessons. Consult a highly rated vocal instructor to determine how many lessons you should take — and how often you should take them.

Do singing lessons actually work?

Yes, many students who’ve taken singing lessons say that their singing has gotten better. To find out if voice coaches near you have successfully taught others how to sing, read their customer reviews on Thumbtack.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Whether you’re a novice or experienced singer, it’s never too late to start taking vocal lessons.

If you’re thinking about signing up your child for voice lessons, keep in mind that some instructors recommend waiting until their voice settles after puberty. Talk to voice coaches near you to find out if now's the time for you (or your child) to start taking lessons.

I found Lotus Voice Studio through the Thumbtack app and just finished my first lesson (geared specifically toward Musical Theatre) and I'm enjoying it! Lexie is awesome!

I was taking lessons through a community college. I felt like my vocal issues were being overlooked in order to meet deadlines. Rena is helping me to build my voice. She doesn't let me get away with anything and she is patient. Plus, she doesn't assume to know what voice category I fit in as soon as she hears me sing (in other words, she doesn't put me in a box assuming that where I am now is as far as I will go). Right now we are undoing my bad vocal habits, learning how to produce sound without unnecessary facial, lip/tongue, or breath movement /tension. I learned that I was unable to hit higher notes because I was using my whistle registry too soon. My last teacher assumed that was the limit of my voice. If you are a serious singer who wants to learn how to operate/control you voice, Rena is worth the investment.

Sarabeth is highly competant and clearly understands voice. She is calm and patient never rushes. I have sang for decades and with many teachers. I found Sarabeth to be exceptional in her ability to produce my best tone. She had me sing each phrase and worked with me to refine and perfect the sound. My one hour lesson with her made me feel calm and relaxed which is most important when singing. I would recommend Sarabeth

This being my first voice lesson, I wasn’t too sure what to expect, however upon meeting Shoshana I was immediately blown away by her bubbly and graceful demeanor. I’ve never felt more at ease than when I’m working with her. She makes learning to sing so fun and engaging. She’s also extremely patient and encouraging all at the same time. I literally refuse to work with anybody else going forward. Thank you so much Shoshana!
