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.

How can I find a good voice teacher?

Use Thumbtack to find a good, top-rated voice teacher near you. With Thumbtack, you can view the teachers’ profiles, read their client testimonials and check their ratings. To ensure you hire the best instructor, ask them questions about their credentials and success with other students. 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.

Elle has been patient, kind, and dedicated in each lesson. She uses the time wisely and really listens to what the students goals are and structures the lessons based on that. As someone who has never played an instrument and with no background in music I was intimidated to learn how to play the keyboard and sing. But Elle has helped me become comfortable and goes at my learning pace. I’m so happy that I made the decision to learn and that Elle is my teacher.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Lypkova! She is brilliant, engaging, and seamlessly merges music theory and practice! I absolutely love the assignments and practice she provides leading up to our online lessons, so our time together is maximized! She is a phenomenal teacher, even from across the country :)
