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?

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Shoshana is an amazing teacher! I started voice lessons with her for just a year and I've already improved so much. My friends and family have all noticed a significant difference. I feel much more confident in singing in front of people now. My range has increased and my tone sounds a lot better than when I first started. At first, I was a little hesitant about starting voice lessons, but she made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She knows exactly how to take your voice to the next level. I recommend Shoshana to all my friends. Take her lessons! You won't regret it!

Richard is one of the best, nicest, talented and knowledgeable teachers and people I've had the pleasure of working with. He has helped me improve vocally, believe in myself, trust my talent - all this after only 2 lessons! My lesson is the highlight of my week! I can't wait to see where my lessons and voice will take me!

Richard is an absolutely amazing voice instructor. He has a knack for describing the anatomy of a voice through metaphoric visuals that have helped me understand how to better use my voice. In the two month span of lessons I have had with Richard, I've noticed a marked difference in vocal range and strength. He has helped me tackle bad habits and develop new, healthier habits that truly free the voice. At such reasonable prices, you can't go wrong with choosing Richard.

James gave me an awesome voice lesson! I have been so afraid of singing, but he quickly made me comfortable, and made singing easier! I like that he splits the time between exercises that increased my range and songs I wanted to sing, and definitely motivated me for more lessons! It was fun too!

Natalia helped me get to know my voice and gave me the confidence I needed to go on my acting auditions that required singing! Such a great teacher! We worked out of her home studio in Hollywood. Super convenient. I only went to 3 or 4 lessons because my schedule got crazy. But when I return to singing lessons- it'll definitely be with her!

I'm a songwriter that wanted to learn how to sing my own music. I've attempted to sing off and on for many years, but never really felt confident in my abilities. In as few as four weeks Richard not only made me more confident, but he has also greatly improved my voice. The reaction of my band-mates at the first rehearsal after several voice lessons was proof enough! Richard is great and he is a pleasure to work with.

I started vocal training when I was about seven years old, maybe younger. And I took private lessons from 5th grade until I graduated high school. I went 6 years with absolutely nothing and then decided to try private lessons again because I miss singing. In just 5 lessons, Richard has improved exponentially upon what all of those teachers and directors were able to produce from me over 10 years. Richard has really broken down for me the fundamentals of singing, how it works, how different things can feel and how it should feel. And he’s really taken the pressure off and allowed me to just enjoy singing and the things my voice can do. The lessons are easy, anyone can do them. He gives you really simple three or four note scales to do and explains everything. If you’re a visual learner like I am, Richard will be perfect for you, he explains everything with fun visualizations and he’ll keep giving you different suggestions until you find something that clicks. In barely any lessons at all, my voice has become brighter, clearer, prettier and most importantly, I understand why, and how to get it there every single time I sing. Richard is so kind, so much fun and really positive. I encourage everyone who wants to sing, whether professionally or just because they love it, to give Richard a try.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience working with Lisa! I am SO glad I found her!!! She is attentive, thoughtful and makes learning exciting! She really listens to your needs, where you want to go and wants to help you achieve your goals. I want to start auditioning for musicals and we are working on a song while still focusing on technique. She makes hard work feel good and so rewarding! Sign yourself up for lessons with her! She'll change your voice and she's such a joy to spend time with!
