How much do singing lessons cost?
« on: May 16, 2015, 04:50:15 PM »
My sister is considering singing (or trying to). She's serious enough about it that she's looking into lessons. That's a part of music I never dabbled in so I have no clue on the prices. Can anyone help me?

If you look around you may be able to get it as low as $10-15 per week, if you try to find coaches who take private clients. Some university music professors will do this on weekends to make a few extra bucks; that was how I got my voice training. Check classified ads, Craigslist, the yellow pages, and online for people in your area who might offer such coaching.

The cost always tends to depend on how much the teacher of these lessons is valued. There are easy ways to find cheap or free lessons in your community but the quality may not be up to par with those you would pay a tad more for. I would suggest getting a monthly quote as opposed to an hourly one.

It really depends on where you have your lessons. Some charge monthly, some hourly. I agree with JoanMcWench that you should get lessons that would require you to pay monthly than hourly because it'd cost less. If your sister really wants to learn (and not just learn from YouTube videos or other cheap materials you can buy in stores), singing lessons would definitely be worth it especially if she learns from professionals. It'd really benefit her if she's serious about this. Just choose and pay wisely, I guess.

In my city the rate is about $10 for an average teacher. The good ones cost about twice or three times as much, from what I've heard anyway.
Like others mentioned, it's probably a safe bet trying to get ahead with some autodidact material. More knowledge doesn't hurt either way.
As far as finding teachers... classified ads, asking friends or asking around in instrument shops or musicians' markets.
