Singing lessons for children and teens are available for everyone from first-time singers to advanced students. Lessons are available regardless of a student’s ability to read music or not. New students may be any age—from under 6 up to age 17. Instructors commonly teach a range of styles including classical, jazz, R&B, pop, musical theater, rap, country and opera. Lessons frequently cover breathing techniques, ear and tone training, internal acoustics, projection and more. Several factors affect the cost of singing lessons for children and teens.

Teacher reputation

A singing teacher with advanced music degrees or a well-known professional career may have higher vocal instruction rates than other teachers.

Set rates

Some singing instructors have the same rate per session regardless of lesson length or the number of lessons purchased at one time. Octave Higher Vocal Studio in Austin, Texas, always charges $40 for 30 minutes of instruction.

Lesson length

The length of the singing lesson affects the cost. Typically, the longer the lesson, the higher the cost, although a lesson that is twice as long usually won’t cost twice as much. For example, Barbara Ryan in Fairfax Station, Virginia (who only works with students in their teens and older) offers the following time-based tiered pricing:

  • 30-minute lesson: $35

  • 60-minute lesson: $55

Packages

Many singing instructors provide a lower cost per lesson when students buy a bundle of lessons upfront. The overall initial cost is higher but less expensive than purchasing lessons individually over time. Here’s how Nine Muses Studio in Austin, Texas, handles individually priced lessons:

  • One 30-minute lesson: $30

  • One 45-minute lesson: $45

  • One 60-minute lesson: $60

Here’s pricing for three or more lessons purchased upfront:

  • 45-minute package: $40 per lesson ($5 per lesson savings)

  • 60-minute package: $50 per lesson ($10 per lesson savings)

Location

Voice lessons may take place in a vocal studio or at the student’s location. If the teacher is required to travel, additional travel fees may apply to account for the teacher’s time and transportation expenses.

Pro tip:

  • Don’t let price be the main factor in selecting a teacher, urges Michael Jacobs. High-quality training on a less frequent basis will produce better results than more frequent, low-quality training, which could actually lead to vocal problems or damage.
