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.

Crossfit for your voice! First lesson was great. No holds barred. Liked his 'targeted' and very scientifically-based integration of technique, neurology and muscle memory. He's a real find! (So's this Thumbtack, app!) Looking forward to the outcome of more lessons with Gene.

Gene was totally awesome. I never knew or felt what a strong voice I had, until I met with Gene and followed his voice instructions and on the my 1st lesson. I see Gene as professional, kind, patient and encouraging. Thank you Gene . Be well be blessed, Debbie

I've taken 6 voice lessons with Kylah and couldn't be happier. As someone who was very self concious about my singing abilities she has created a very comfortable learning envrionment. The progress we have made in 6 lessons has been awesome.

We had a first free lesson with Genu yesterday, and the class was impressive. Gene uses SLS to training his students, and I feel Gene is a right voice coach we are looking for, and we can't wait to take more lessons from him to see the results. Thanks Gene!

A first class instructor with a big heart. Leandro really becomes your music partner and his experience in the industry is accomplished and extensive. As a singer who hasn't had lessons in decades, he met me at my level and every lesson, I feel my voice getting stronger and stronger. Thanks, Leandro!

Oriana has been a delight. This is my first voice lesson ever and she has helped calm my nerves and really learn to even be able to practice outside of class. I really appreciate her approach.

The real tried and tested method to freeing your voice. Exercises that instantly start training you voice with the support of the larynx to free the vocal chords and blend your passagio that will train you and your anoyying habits to follow the rules you tell it to. Working with Gene totally has begun to change my sound in the most real and natural way saving my voice, even saving time. No doubt you should come at the least to the first free lesson to expirience the perfect technique passed down to him from masters that coached many famous beautiful free and powerful voices such as michael jackson himself.

Ronni is an amazing teacher, performer, and someone I have come to consider a friend! I could tell and immediate difference after my first lesson with him, and I would recommend him to anyone interested in improving their voice or performing abilities.

Typically there are two types of voice teachers: Those who teach from their own performing experience, and those who teach from studying voice in an academic setting. Ronnie is a rare mix of both. His vocal schooling allows him to communicate key concepts that pertain to the voice, from technique to vocal health, while his experience performing all around the US allows him to share essential tips for creating a great performance. The majority of students taking voice lessons do so with the intent of gaining the confidence to perform in front of others, and Ronnie will go out of his way to see his students succeed. He’s quick to create a friendship with you; he’ll check up on you throughout the week, answer any questions you have between lessons, even try to find you gigs in town through his connections. Anyone of any skill level will grow quickly from Ronnie’s exemplary teaching.

I had been thinking of taking voice lessons for awhile and after only a few lessons with Dr. David, I can't believe I waited so long. Dr. David is extremely charismatic, fun, and knowledgeable making the lesson something I look forward to every week. I've only just started my singing journey and am very grateful to have found a one of a kind teacher like David!! If you are looking for that extra pep in your step in your singing journey, look no further!

I've only worked with Gene for a short time, however each lesson so far has established a headspring of tremendously essential vocal technique. Immediately it was made apparent to me that his approach towards voice tutoring was sophisticated and his patience regarding his students exceptional.

Choosing Austin Premiere Voice Lessons is the best decision I've ever made. I've been working with Ronnie for about 7 months now and my voice has improved so so so much. He's helped me improve the power in my voice, my range, vocal control, and he also helped me develop a vibrato which is something that my previous voice coach could never do. Not only is he an amazing musician and singer, and I mean BEYOND talented, but he's also an all around great person with this amazing personality. He doesn't make his students feel like students, he makes them feel like his friends. So when you go in for a lesson, you feel like you're just going to hang out with your friend for an hour or two. If you're looking for a vocal coach, who will take your voice to a whole other level, who will reveal to you new vocal talents that you never knew you had, who will show you a new sense of confidence that you never knew existed within you? Then look no further, your search is over because RONNIE HALL IS YOUR GUY!!!!

I am a beginner singer who recently started online lessons with Kim. She is very knowledgable about her work which is backed up by her incredible credentials. Not only does she know how to sing — but she understands the anatomy and physiology behind your voice. Her lessons are structured and organized and she makes you feel so comfortable. Kim takes her time to understand your voice and gives you advice on how to improve and sing in a healthy way. In the short span of having Kim as my teacher, I have improved in ways I didn’t think was possible. I look forward to having Kim as my teacher for years to come. I highly recommend anyone who’s in search of a singing coach to go to Kim!

I had my diagnostic session with Gene yesterday, and I'm so thrilled to be working with him! He found my trouble spots with the first 10 minutes, and had me do some exercises to correct them so my brain/body could start to grasp the concept. I've taken voice lessons before, but this is the first time I actually felt like it was targeted at my specific needs. He's funny, insightful, and easy to work with! I'm excited to think about where my voice can go!

Ronnie is the best singing teacher I've ever had! He's patient, kind and he has a technique that easily gets you improving withing the first few lessons. He learns your voice and picks out songs that go with it and teaches you the secrets to singing! I highly recommend him to everyone who loves to sing.

Kylah offers a very comfortable environment which is important for nervous people like myself. She was able to plan out our goals, was very flexible with listening to bands I wanted to sing along with for practice, and described how the body is effected when you sing a certain way or how your voice will sound when you do certain things to your body. That extra knowledge is vital if you want to learn to stay healthy and perform strong. Overall, the lesson went very well and we plan to meet again a week from now. Thanks Kylah!

Gene, thank you so much for a great first lesson! I can't wait for the next one, and to practice my new techniques on my own. Gene was able, in the first few minutes, address a problem that I have been having since I first started singing in choirs. It has always been very difficult for me to sing low. He was able to tell me why I was having the problem and some of the common misconceptions about it. One of the major paradigms I will have to shift in my own mind is that head voice isn't everything. I feel like even though I will be working outside of my comfort zone, (I love to sing the high stuff) being able to establish my lower range will provide a good foundation for those high notes that I love so much. I'm so excited about being able to work on new music that I always thought was outside of my capabilities!!!
