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.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Taking lessons with Singing With Lauren was a fantastic decision! I have no experience with singing lessons so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My coach, Kyle, has worked with me weekly over Zoom and I have seen real improvements in my voice even after the first few lessons! Additionally, you receive access to a website full of pre-recorded lessons with Lauren in case you’re looking for some extra learning. Very friendly and skilled staff. I highly recommend!!

I went through a few voice teachers before Jordan she’s the one I wound up sticking with. I’ve been taking lessons with her for a couple years and definitely improved my singing.

Suzie is a great singing instructor and mentor. She listens to what I want and has a broad skill set to share with me, which makes her lessons simple and effective. Most importantly, she's very positive and motivational!! If you want to learn AND have fun, call Suzie.

I've been taking voice lessons from Scott Farrell for 6 months. These 45 minute sessions are challenging yet fun, and they take place in a comfortable private atmosphere. I couldn't sing at all when I began taking lessons from him. Under his expert and caring instruction, I've made steady improvement and progress towards my goals. I would recommend his instruction to all of my family and friends.

Working with Ona so far has been great! She is very knowledgeable about singing and makes you feel very comfortable. She is very understanding and patient. I have felt and heard so much progress in the few lessons that we’ve had so far. If you’re a beginner definitely pick her!

LYNN IS AMAZING!!!! I sang for fun for years and tried to learn off of YouTube, singing dvds, and other things. While I got slightly better, I had technical flaws that took away from my sound and made me strain. After ONE LESSON, she was able to diagnose exactly what I was doing wrong and I’m singing more freely, with more range, and more control. This is by far the best investment in myself in 2021! Get as many sessions with Lynn as you can. If you are serious about reaching your vocal potential, she’s for you. Thanks Lynn!!!!

Suzie is really easy to be around and learn from. She helped me overcome a huge fear of singing in front of another person. In the first lesson she exposed me to artists that I could learn from, but I would never have explored on my own. She will expand your horizons on day one and show you tricks to assist in developing good habit. She also has great perspective as a performing artist, and can teach you what to be mindful of when performing, but she's a also a great resource when it comes to songwriting.
