Voice Lesson Plans
You can’t fake this music. You might be a great singer or a great musician but, in the need, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s how you connect to the songs and to the history behind them. -Etta James
Perhaps you’re a student, speaker, coach, or other public figure and you’re looking for a more creative and enjoyable way to strengthen your presence and hone the expressive power of your voice. Or maybe you’re preparing for an audition, show, or other major performance.

How the Four (4) Lesson Plan works
Our personalized and manageable lesson plans include a total of four (4) private lessons. Pricing varies based on the level and duration you select.
Each of the four (4) lessons is scheduled once per week on a day and time you can consistently attend. Therefore, a lesson plan is typically completed in four weeks.
In order to continue taking lessons at your preferred time, you must renew your lesson plan within 48 hours after the last lesson of your plan or within any previously agreed upon arrangements. For more information, learn more about PianoVerse or go to Start Here & FAQ.
Lesson Plan Example:
If you are Beginner and choose the 30 Minute Lesson Plan ($100), you will get a total of four (4) Beginner voice lessons that are 30 minutes each. See the full level and price chart below.
About private voice lessons
Advancement: Advancing to the next voice level differs from how you advance in piano because your voice is continuously developing. You must be able to demonstrate healthy vocal habits and proficiency in singing technique, breathing, breath support, posture, tone quality, articulation, sight-singing, and ear-training that is required of your voice level.
Books: A voice lesson book, which comes with CD accompaniment (highly recommended for beginners), will be suggested after the first lesson since everyone learns differently, has different interests, and is at a different stage. If you have your own repertoire, feel free to bring it to the lesson and the teacher can check to see if it fits within your voice range and vocal ability (and help you work up to it). Book cost is separate from lesson plan cost.
Did you know?: Healthy training and learning good vocal habits can revitalize and strengthen a voice to last a lifetime. The voice is continuously developing and experiences the most dramatic changes during the early pre-teen years. In fact, a woman’s voice may not be fully developed until about the age of 35, while a man’s voice may not be fully developed until about the age of 45!
