How To Find A Vocal Coach

We've already discussed the best places to find a voice teacher so in this article we will take a look at how to interview a prospective vocal coach so that you can be sure that you find the best vocal coach possible for the price that you are willing to pay. Bear in mind that the best vocal coaches are probably busy and booked with students so they may not have time to answer all your questions. If this is the case you could just try a few lessons with the vocal coach and find out the answers then. It's best to treat these questions as suggestions.

Essential questions to help find the best vocal coach:

  • How many years have you been teaching? 
    Expect to pay more for a vocal coach with a lot of years experience. If the prospective vocal coach has been around for a while you are more likely to find some current or former students who can tell you about the vocal coach's strengths.
  • Where did you study, or where did you get your singing education? 
    You want a vocal coach who has had years of performance experience or years of lessons or training in a degree program that focuses on the voice. The vocal coach does not have to have a degree from an Ivy League school to be a good teacher. He just needs to know a lot about singing and how to pass on this knowledge to his students.
  • Do you perform? If so, where? 
    If you have the opportunity to hear the vocal coach sing, then by all means go. You may discover a lot about his personality that you might not get to see in the singing lessons.
  • Do you work with many different voice types? 
    Do you teach different styles of music? If you are looking for help with specific voice type, or specific singing styles, you need to make sure that your prospective vocal coach can work with your voice type or the style of singing you're interested in.
  • Where do you conduct your lessons? 
    The vocal coach may hold lessons in her home, at a studio, at a school, or even in your home. Expect to pay more for lessons at your home.
  • What kind of music do your students sing? 
    You want to find out if the vocal coach is interested in the same kind of music that you enjoy. If she only assigns songs and doesn't allow the students to choose, think about how you feel about her preferred style of music before you commit.

Don't forget that some of the best vocal coaches have created excellent online vocal coach training and vocal coach software products. These products offer a convenient and inexpensive alternative to private lessons. I recommend reading these reviews of the best teach yourself singing lessons from top celebrity vocal coaches.
