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?

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

We absolutely love voice lessons with Mr. Ballard. He has a professional but very friendly demeanor that immediately made us comfortable. He is always prepared and ready to go as soon as we arrive but is also ready to roll with whatever we may want to work on as well. I highly recommend lessons with him. It is a pleasure and a great value.

John Schreiner is great to work with. I am new to singing, but he made me feel excited about moving forward. I especially like his teaching philosophy that I not only do voice lessons, but we have a specific goals of how many songs I will be singing in my time with him. I’m looking forward to more lessons!
