How much are singing lessons?

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?

Yes, many students who’ve taken singing lessons say that their singing has gotten better. To find out if voice coaches near you have successfully taught others how to sing, read their customer reviews on Thumbtack.

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.

My son has thoroughly enjoyed his voice lessons. Not only is he receiving great advice to make his voice the best it can be, he's also getting advice on how to prepare for auditions and pick the right song for his voice.

I have liked to sing for decades. I recently started working with Angela for my first voice lessons. She obviously is knowledgeable about the anatomy of voice production. She is working first to give me the understanding of what goes into a quality voice that people want to listen to, by instruction, exercises and personal feedback from her. This is just what I'm looking for in a teacher.

I absolutely enjoyed my lessons with Deanna. She balances the lessons based on what your goals are and her expert opinion on areas you can improve. My family noticed the difference in my voice and projection after the first few months. Thank you for your time and for making the lessons fun!

Arlys was extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. I am a fairly shy beginner and she was very helpful in beginning the process of learning to use my voice - I highly recommend lessons with her!

She is pleasant and seems to know her stuff. After two months of weekly lessons I got the impression I was wasting her time and therefore mine. It felt a bit like being dismissed. She was not willing to go the extra mile to help me open up to my voice after telling me I had a beautiful voice and could actually sing. If she had techniques to help someone like me who she felt was blocked, she was unwilling to use them to assist me. I still very much want to find my voice because I love singing. I will look for someone else when the time is right.

I've been working with Cassandra for just over a month, and have just renewed my contract. The progress we've made in such a short amount of time really is remarkable. Cassandra approaches our lessons with insight and intelligence, and she has really helped me begin to develop a more classical sound to my voice.

Bobbi has been great for my girls - age 10. We have only had lessons for a short time but I can really see the difference in their singing . She is very supportive of where the girls are and helps them to see where they can go with their voices. She has helped us with audition songs and gives great tips for performing as well. The girls really like working with her!

Katrina is wonderful in encouraging progress and helping you address your fears. I’ve gained serious insight into my ability to perform and feel more confident in myself because of these lessons. If you’re somebody who feels passionately about music but feel like you can’t actively participate because you haven’t dedicated your entire life to the performing arts, you’ll find a safe space to have a voice here!
