My experience from more than 30 years has helped me learn how to MIX. I mix the serious teaching/learning of the one-to-one session with games that review previous learning that has comes close to mastery! Also we have fun -- Just the right amount of fun! to keep up the pace! My sessions with students are rich with positive results! The one-to-one setting provides a great "back drop" for maximum growth for the student!

Your singing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

How much do singing lessons cost near me?

Singing lessons cost $30 to $90 for each class, on average. If you want a private lesson, that's typically $50 to $90 hourly. You can get cheaper rates for group singing lessons that cost $25 to $50 each.

Most online lessons from a vocal coach cost $40 to $70 per hour. A private singing instructor typically charges $190 to $400 for about 4 to 5 sessions a month.

Do singing lessons work?

Singing lessons do work to help you sing better and hit the right notes. The more you practice and get advice from your teacher, the better you will get. Usually, students start noticing bigger improvements in their vocal abilities after 3 to 6 months.

What do singing lessons teach you?

Singing lessons teach you new skills like:

  • Reading new music and singing it out loud without hearing it first
  • Changing your mouth positions to improve the quality of your voice
  • Getting better at breathing while you sing
  • Learning new ways to use your voice to hit more notes

Can you take singing lessons at any age?

You can take singing lessons at any age, whether as a kid or adult. You just need to be ready to pay attention and learn. Anyone can learn to sing if they practice and have a good teacher.

How do I find the best singing lessons near me?

To find the best singing lessons near you, browse our listings here on Tutors to see which teachers are active in your neighborhood. You can also ask local music schools if they know any good vocal coaches or ask for local vocal instructors at community colleges.

Before picking a singing teacher in your area:

  • Compare prices from 3 or more singing instructors.
  • Read what people have said about them on Google and our Tutors website.
  • Request a contacts list of references to talk to students they've taught recently.
  • Get a copy of the agreement and the lesson schedule before attending class.
  • Wait until you've had a few lessons and feel the teacher suits you before paying for a whole month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a singing teacher?

  • How many years have you been teaching people how to sing?
  • Can you help me learn some of my favorite songs?
  • Do you teach operatic, traditional, belting, or contemporary pop singing?
  • Will you give me exercises to practice between lessons?
  • What kind of music did you study to become a music teacher?
  • If I need more help when learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • Do you also teach sightreading to sing music I haven't heard before?
  • Can I try a lesson for free or at a discount?
  • Do you have a list of our class times, the rules, and the billing schedule?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long does each lesson last?
  • If I need to cancel a class, how early in advance should I do it?
  • How much time should I spend practicing?
  • Will I need to buy music books for these classes?

Eric B.
I recommend Lizeth as a great English tutor. English is second language and thanks to the fact that Lizeth is bilingual it helps me to understand. Lizeth is patient to explain things in English and translate the material into English. I like the fact that she is patient and bilingual I think it’s a plus

Ms. Dagmar was my child’s teacher in the Primary (3-6) year old group at the Montessori school she has taught at for many years. My child is very sensitive and shy, but Ms. Dagmar had an awareness of how to approach her and amplify her talents to build confidence. She dedicated three years to this with my daughter. I would say that if you are looking for an empathetic and reliable, dedicated tutor through any challenges, Ms. Dagmar is the one!
