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.

Max is a great piano teacher, especially if you want to focus on music theory. I've been taking lessons with him for a few months and already have learned a lot about playing music and jazz in general, in addition to specific piano mechanics. He has also been quite responsive and flexible with me when I've needed to reschedule lessons. Overall, would definitely recommend to any piano student.

I was nervous to take lessons, but Alexi has made me feel very comfortable. He is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about music. He has molded classes to my specific needs rather than giving me arbitrary "lessons" which has been great.

My granddaughters ages 8 and 6 love their piano teacher and enjoy the convenience of lessons at home. This is a well run and musically responsive company in Salt Lake. I recommend them!

I found Leslie while searching for piano teachers near our home. One of the main reasons I chose her was because she was open to my staying for the lessons. And, she had an impressive history of teaching music to school age children as well. My 10-year son has had such a good experience learning piano with Leslie over the last month that I decided to enroll my 8-year old daughter in lessons as well. Neither of my children have prior musical training, but they are learning quickly and thoroughly enjoy going to their lessons. Leslie is great with them -- very patient and encouraging. I'm thrilled we were able to find her through Thumbtack!

My daughter loves her lessons with Suzanne. She used to be shy about singing, and now she sings opening all the time and has auditioned for 2 musicals and gotten parts in both of them at a local theatre. I highly recommend Suzanne as a voice coach.

Was impressed with how willing JVP studio was to keep for me in with my busy schedule. Very accompanying for a short notice about an audition. Super helpful and gave some great tips and tricks to help with auditioning in the future. Would highly recommend for musical theater, auditions, or singing lessons.

Taking piano lessons again as an adult was a little daunting at first but in just a few weeks Kevin has helped me become a more competent and confident piano player. He is extremely patient and is always thinking of new ways to challenge his students. He has even provided me with sheet music and books that range from classical to pop music which has kept me excited about playing. Young or old, I highly recommend Kevin!!

My seven year old has been taking online piano lessons with Kyle for about a month. She's really enjoying the lessons. She wasn't too interested in learning piano before we started and to be honest she still isn't overenthusiastic about piano but she is about Kyle and his lessons. She is always excited on Thursdays because she gets to have her lesson with Kyle. Kyle and I have talked about how much she should be practicing and so far he has a simple and effective approach. It is mainly do not push too much, too soon. He is more focused on instilling a lifetime of musical enjoyment rather than making as much progress as possible in a short amount of time. He said, "if we push her to practice too much, too soon, then her current indifference towards piano will build into a progress halting hatred." I have to agree with him on that. I had clarinet lessons as a kid and was pushed too fast and eventually it became a chore for me and I despised it. I am sure many other adults have experienced something similar in their youth. For now, she goes and plays through her song when she feels like it without any pressure from me or my husband to practice. Kyle's plan is to let her do this for the first six months and then we have her start practicing 5 or 6 days a week for 5 or so minutes per day. Then we gradually start to increase the practice time as her music gets more complicated. Kyle also says that listening to music, any kind of music that she enjoys, is the most important thing. If she develops a natural love for music, then there will be much more motivation for learning and practicing an instrument Like I mentioned at the beginning of this essay (lol), is that it has only been a month but Kyle has been very impressive and I am glad we found a teacher like him.

Max knows his stuff. I came to him mainly looking to expand my knowledge regarding musical theory and to apply that to other instruments that I play. Within only a couple of lessons I've already noticed a difference with how I approach playing other instruments. The material he gives is not overwhelming but its efficient in that I feel like I am gaining knowledge and techniques that can be applied to learning or composing other pieces of music. I would definitely recommend him whether you are a beginner trying to learn a new instrument or more experienced and trying to get a more solid grasp on musical theory.

Ryan has a wonderfully personable approach! He is also very knowledgeable about classical music and technique directly related to it. I've made more progress with him in the last few months than I have alone in the last few years! Would highly recommend to anyone from beginner to advanced. He really gives effective lessons as a virtually based teacher. Thank you Ryan!

It only takes 5 minutes to notice that Erica is an incredibly talented teacher. She has vast knowledge of the music field and has tons of tips that will help you understand very quickly what she’s trying to teach. On top of that, she’s a very charismatic person, which makes her lessons a very fun and enriching experience. She’s easily one of the best teachers I’ve ever met and I have no doubt that under her guidance, I’ll be able to become a great musician.

I have had an amazing experience taking lessons from Treyan. I am an adult student, who knew next to nothing about piano when I started. Treyan did, and continues to do, an amazing job at listening to what my interests are, and then completely tailoring his lessons to my interests and goals. I was interested in Treyan as a teacher after chatting with him because of the creative, flexible, and improvistational way he teaches his students to play. He has a strong core system to ensure you learn the important theory, chords, and scales, while also combining an intuitive rhythm method for learning songs. I have been taking lessons for six months, and am astounded by not only how quickly I am learning, but how much I am enjoying the process. Best of all, Treyan is extremely responsive and diligent in his prep before and after lessons. I've had him send me instructional videos on the weekends, print and notate music for me, and listen/find songs that he thinks I would be interested in. If you can't tell already from my review, I would highly recommend Treyan for any age student who is interested in learning and growing as a piano player.

I have feel enormously privileged to be taught by someone as passionate and talented as Treyan. My piano skills and understanding in the 6 months that I have been currently working with him have increased to levels I would not have thought I was capable of in such a short amount of time. Treyan has an inordinate amount of patience along with a welcoming teaching climate that encourages creativity, critical thinking about pieces, and a passion for playing the piano. The method in which he teaches is unorthodox to how I would think traditional piano teaching would be carried out, but I believe it makes it that much more effective. I feel I have an understanding of how music theory and writing works to a level that is beyond what I what get with traditional instruction. I look forward to every lesson - Indeed, they tend to be one of the highlights of my week. I can't stress enough how highly I would recommend Treyan if you are serious about learning not only how to play the piano, but understand and have passion for it. I worried when I first started seeking piano lessons from teachers that I would burn out in the first couple of weeks or months, but I feel as excited as ever to walk through the doors, and have Treyan guide, teach, and walk me through a new lesson every week.

I started voice lessons a few weeks ago with EJ Michael’s, and I’m blown away by my progress. Prior to working with him, I’d never had voice lessons before, but I’d purchased several online courses through Udemy and watched online tutorials on youtube, and I was frustrated and unsure about how to progress. It’s hard to put into words just how amazing it is to work with someone who is so professional, kind and encouraging and knows the latest cutting edge vocals techniques and can teach and demonstrate how to sing anything you want to sing. He’s an incredible singer, songwriter, and producer who is can sing as well if not better my favorite artists, and even though he’s extremely busy at times touring the world as the lead singer of his band Foreign Figures, performing and giving inspirational live performances and talks at schools and venues like TEDx Salt Lake City, he somehow manages to pour an incredible amount energy into helping his students to achieve their goals. I studied classical piano for 8 years while I was growing up, and I've always had a pretty nice voice. I played the piano professionally for church for years, and but for some reason, I had the misconception that you’re stuck with the voice you’re born with and until very recently I didn't know it was possible to build muscle memory in my voice with vocal exercises. I can't believe how much range, control and power I've gained in less than a month of doing the exercises every day and having weekly lessons with EJ Michels. I finally feel like I'm building the tools I need to make music I love because I have my whole voice to work with, not just a limited range. It feels so good because for the first time in 20 years or so, I feel like I’m making real progress, having fun and enjoying my life. The money I’ve spent on lessons with EJ Michels is hands down the best money I’ve ever spent pursuing my goals in music, and I can’t say enough good things about him.

I've only been working with Deanna a few short weeks, but I have been very impressed not only with her professionalism, but also her ability. She has a powerful voice, and I haven't even heard it to its full capacity. Seeing as she focused mainly on classical and musical theater, it was an easy choice for me to attend a first lesson with her. She's very good at reading what people are ready for, and I'm very grateful to have her guidance in helping me discover my voice instead of being left to my own. She is very easy to communicate with both about what you would like to achieve and about arranging things such as lessons. She doesn't leave you wondering about where you stand. She's an excellent example of you get what you pay for. I'm not saying there aren't instructors who are more affordable, but I am saying I trust her talent, and that is worth not just my money, but the time I'm spending there. Definitely give her a try.
