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.

I really loved my first voice lesson with Tona! She was extremely patient and encouraging, and in just one hour had me hitting high notes more fully and easily than I have in decades. I look forward to more lessons and unlocking the full extent of my voice!

I went through a few voice teachers before Jordan she’s the one I wound up sticking with. I’ve been taking lessons with her for a couple years and definitely improved my singing.

I grew up singing, but was looking for a way to get back into it. I’ve been taking voice lessons from Rob for about 5 months and I’ve noticed a difference in both my sound and stamina. Highly recommend!

Taking lessons with Singing With Lauren was a fantastic decision! I have no experience with singing lessons so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My coach, Kyle, has worked with me weekly over Zoom and I have seen real improvements in my voice even after the first few lessons! Additionally, you receive access to a website full of pre-recorded lessons with Lauren in case you’re looking for some extra learning. Very friendly and skilled staff. I highly recommend!!

I would highly recommend Destiny Rayne Voice Studio for vocal lessons! I've had a few lessons so far with Destiny and she is great to work with. She responds to messages quickly, takes notes during each lesson for me to review afterwards, and is super knowledgeable. She is very skilled and a full-time singer too (how cool)! Thanks Destiny for being so great, glad I found you!

I just started taking lessons with Brittani at Lotus Voice Studio, and she is absolutely phenomenal. I came in as a beginner scared for what to expect, but she is a true expert in her field. The value for the level of skill provided is incomparable! Thanks Brittani.

I would give Leandro a 6/5 if I could! I have been taking voice lessons with him for a few months now and to say they have been phenomenal would be an understatement. I have really felt and heard my voice evolve over this time and so have my friends and family. Leandro really puts the needs and wants of the student first and teaches musical techniques in an easy to understand manner. He is really flexible with the songs we work with and is fun to talk to! Working with him has given me confidence in my voice I never knew I had. I highly, highly recommend him for your voice and musical journey!

I've been taking voice lessons from Scott Farrell for 6 months. These 45 minute sessions are challenging yet fun, and they take place in a comfortable private atmosphere. I couldn't sing at all when I began taking lessons from him. Under his expert and caring instruction, I've made steady improvement and progress towards my goals. I would recommend his instruction to all of my family and friends.

I and my two daughters have been taking voice lessons from Roxy for the past four or five months. My daughters started first and I was so impressed with Roxy’s teaching and inspired by my girls that I started lessons too! I love Roxy’s holistic approach to teaching. She not only covers amazing vocal technique but she helps you work through the inevitable nervousness and vulnerability that emerges for new singers. Thank you, Roxy!! 💛

Just started my first lesson today and it was great!. My vocal instructor Megan was phenomenal. I'd love to continue to work with her. She made me feel comfortable right off the bat. I was able to single without feeling nervous and really try to see how far I could go with my voice. The first like 10 minutes I was able to hit high notes warming up with her, notes that I didn't even know I was able to hit. Overall I am really excited to see how much of my voice I can find and improve. Hope to get to work with her for my next session! - MPK
