Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Singing lessons teach individuals of all ages and skill levels how to express their voices musically. Vocal coaches typically provide one-one-one lessons and small group sessions, and chorale directors work with large groups of singers of varying vocal ranges. Voice lessons help seasoned singers build their ranges and strengthen their voices, and they provide beginning singers with the basic tools needed to carry tunes and work up through the vocal scales.


Vocal lessons consist of voice warm-ups, breath work, and song rehearsals for performances and auditions. Voice lessons that teach speech-level singing techniques also include some forms of speech therapy, and some coaches stick to specific genres or types of singing, such as musical theater and opera.

What do singing lessons do?

Singing lessons help new and seasoned singers and performers expand their vocal ranges, learn new singing methods, and build overall confidence when performing in front of audiences. Taking lessons from a professional coach also helps students learn proper enunciation, tone, and singing techniques to prevent vocal strain.

What do you learn in voice lessons?

In voice lessons, students learn how to sing a variety of genres in multiple vocal ranges. Vocal coaches help singers build confidence in their voices and the art of performing. Coursework can vary, but singing lessons generally include practicing scales, learning vocal exercises, and rehearsing and performing complete songs.

What are singing lessons like?

While the subject matter of singing lessons can vary, in general, a singing lesson consists of a student meeting with a teacher and performing vocal exercises based on the teacher's assessment of the student's voice. During a singing lesson, a student may also practice performance pieces under the guidance of the teacher or coach.

How do voice lessons work?

During voice lessons, students typically start the session with their coach with vocal warm-ups such as scales, lip trills where the lips are pursed while sound comes out, and speaking exercises to open up the voice. If a student has a song they need to rehearse, they may work on it with their coach during some point of the session.

What age should someone start voice lessons?

On average, most children are considered mature enough to take vocal lessons around age 7. However, children as young as toddlers can take music and voice lessons. Children's voice lessons often focus on simple vocal exercises and techniques, and vocal coaches also help children prepare for auditions where singing is required.

Can adults take singing lessons?

Adults of all ages can take singing lessons. Singing lesson options for adults include private, one-on-one coaching for auditions and performances, beginning singing lessons to learn common vocal techniques, singing lessons offered at community colleges, singing workshops, and chorale instruction.

Am I too old to take voice lessons?

You are never too old to take voice lessons. Whether taking singing lessons for pleasure or to pursue a musical career, there are always steps that can be taken to learn to sing, improve your vocal techniques, and learn to read music. Additionally, many music coaches offer courses that are exclusively for seniors.

Can voice lessons help a bad singer?

Voice lessons can help singers of all skill levels improve their voices within their specific abilities. However, there are some cases where students are unable to follow a tune because they naturally cannot hear themselves sing. Approximately 4% of the population is considered tone-deaf, which can be problematic and challenging for singers who are considered below average or "bad."

Do singing lessons work?

It is true that not everyone can carry a tune, which is sometimes referred to as tone-deaf. However, singing lessons can benefit students of all skill levels, whether the result is an understanding of music theory and a deeper appreciation for music or a standing ovation at a live performance.

Can you take voice lessons online?

Many vocal coaches offer online lessons for convenience and to reach students who may not be local to their areas. During an online voice lesson, students meet with instructors over platforms such as Skype or Zoom. They work virtually on everything from basic scales and vocal exercises to performance rehearsals, and payments can also be processed virtually for added convenience.

Can I develop a good singing voice without lessons?

There are ways to develop your voice without singing lessons that include practicing vocal scales, following online tutorials, and performing at open mics. However, professional voice teachers are extremely beneficial to those wanting to build their voices, as they are highly trained and educated. They can help you develop your voice without straining it, and they can provide the specific tools needed to expand your vocal range correctly.

Should I take singing lessons?

Taking singing lessons is a good idea if you are interested in becoming a professional singer or if you simply wish to strengthen your voice and improve your vocal range. If you are an experienced or professional singer, lessons can help with building endurance to hit challenging or high notes, as well as keep you in practice between singing gigs. Singing lessons also help people with stage fright build confidence.

How many singing lessons do I need?

The amount of singing lessons you need depends on what you specifically wish to achieve. For example, if you are auditioning for a musical and you're required to perform a full song, you may wish to take a few lessons prior to the audition to ensure you have the song down. If you're interested in strengthening your voice and improving your range, you may consider signing up for weekly ongoing lessons.

How much are voice lessons?

On average, vocal coaches charge in 15-minute, 30-minute, and 60-minute increments, with costs that range between $10 to $300 or more per session. Many music schools offer scholarships that provide a certain number of lessons at no charge or discounted rates, and students may also be able to sign up for vocal lessons through community colleges.

Do professional singers take voice lessons?

Some professional singers have extensive vocal training in their backgrounds. Current available information states that Ed Sheeran is believed to be a self-taught singer. Freddie Mercury took several years of piano lessons, but by all accounts was a self-taught vocalist. It is not known if Christina Aguilera took singing lessons, but she started singing at a very young age. Billie Eilish began singing in choir when she was 8, and she took instrumental music lessons.
