You should also get cost estimates from at least three instructors before you make your decision.

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.

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.

Reviews for Rockford voice instructors
Thumbtack Customer
I decided for the first time, to start taking voice lessons, back in April 2015. Being that I'm already in my 30's and have had no formal vocal training, I was very shy at first. But from that very first lesson, Sharon instantly made me feel comfortable! She is very down to earth and is very encouraging and patient for a shy beginner like myself. While she has a strong musical background and education, she easily breaks down the concepts so that they are easy to grasp for a newbie like me, and works with me until I fully understand and implement the proper vocal techniques. I couldn't be happier that I made the decision to start voice lessons! I've come so far thanks to Sharon, and I can't wait to see what other skills she develops in me in the months to come! I highly recommend her for anyone looking to either brush up on their vocal skills or start from scratch!
