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?

Reviews for Grand Rapids voice instructors
Kathryn L.
I’ve had a great experience working with Dr. T so far. He is great at explaining things and has many strategies to make things easy to understand and practice. After just a few lessons my singing is already getting better and my confidence in what my voice can do has greatly improved.

I’ve been taking lessons from Dr. T for over two months now, and I’ve really enjoyed the experience. He’s helped build my confidence, has given me a variety of techniques for improving my voice, and has given me instruction on all elements of singing - range, diction, phrasing, you name it. It is a pleasure to be his student.

We love Dr. T. He started working with my daughter pre-covid for a musical she was trying out for. The musical never happened but she wanted to continue working with him. Dr. T does more than help with voice lessons, he also is helping her gain confidence in preforming and life in general. Definitely recommend.

I appreciate Dr. T's lessons greatly. I came to him with no experience regarding voice and he has helped me develop well. He knows exactly how to tackle different issues and I think that I have improved much since we first started. He uses a lot of video examples to illustrate different points and he records your performance to show you how you are improving. He has also helped give me direction on what kind of things I can apply my voice best
