I have been informed that I should be charging $250 per hour because of my knowledge, experience, and success. I know vocal coaches who are charging $500 per hour and $350 per hour.
I only paid $175 per lesson but I don’t charge that much. If you’re shopping for prices, that makes sense but you don’t always get the value of what you pay for.
Your source of information about singing may be different from mine. Mine include Gray’s Anatomy (the book), books by: Richard Miller, Seth Riggs, Roger Love and others. Eight licensed practicing physicians. Two speech therapists.
Thousands of students over 25 years taught me a few things. I’ve taken many private lessons from top professional vocal coaches, arrangers, composers, and musicians.
I’m a professional singer. My own success is a result of what I’ve learned over a few decades. My stage experience includes shows in Las Vegas.
Singing lessons? What singing teachers don’t know won’t kill you but it could kill a career. Many are still spewing useless or harmful myths about how to sing, how to breathe, how to enunciate, how to articulate and more. Many know nothing about style.
One of the highest paid vocal coaches in the world doesn’t teach style. He refers people to someone else for that. What’s even worse is there is one factor, which is the most neglected, that will make or break a career. After writing over 2500 works and being an ASCAP member, I can say I know this factor. I’ve shared musical knowledge and have even helped students learn to write songs.
