Frequently Asked QuestionsGet Started
What Is a Good Age to Start Voice Lessons?
The minimum age we recommend a student start voice lessons is 7 years old. Many parents want their child to start much younger, but a voice lesson that focuses strictly on technique can be very challenging on younger vocal cords that have not yet developed. We are happy to help you learn more and determine if your child is ready!
Teens and adults are welcome and may also want to include voice lessons with another instrument they are learning.
