Hello, and welcome back to Just Answer.

Are you inquiring about singing lessons for an adult, teen or child?

Are you interested in general singing /voice coaching or a particular style?

What is your location (city, state, zipcode)?

Thanks for all your additional details.

Best regards,

Location Southern Chester County PA


The question is for my 12yo daughter. She has a lovely voice and is self taught on Piano and Guitar and writes songs. She has great pitch, nice personality to her voice, good 'feel' and rhythm too. She sings pop and rock songs - she also dabbles in show tunes (which are the ones that often require the 'big' range)


She wants to expand her upper range. She has a very weak falsetto and would like to improve that too. She wants to go to singing lessons to 'fix' these 'problems.' But we are on a tight budget so I want an expert's advice on if it is even possible to increase vocal range through coaching..... And if so by how much?


A 'before and after' video showing increased range after x number of weeks vocal coaching would be pretty persuasive.

Hi again,

I've found the following music studios in or near your area, that give voice lessons in your home or in their studios:

It is indeed possible to increase vocal range through coaching, because although your daughter is innately talented, an experienced voice coach will be able to teach her how to control her breathing in the correct way, which will strengthen and broaden her natural voice talents, and increase her upper range/falsetto. The voice coach will give her vocal and breathing exercises to help in the areas where she feels she is not as strong as she would like to be. In addition, keep in mind that she is only 12 and her voice will be maturing and changing as she grows, so this will also affect and change her vocal range. Learning good singing habits and exercises now, from a professional voice coach, can only improve her existing talents.

I think it would be a good idea to have her take a few lessons and see how she feels about the methods used, the teacher, and if she is learning useful information to enhance her signing. I understand your financial constraints, and many music schools and private voice teachers will be open to negotiation, they may work on a sliding scale, and also may allow you to make lower monthly payments.

In the meantime, you and your daughter might find these tips helpful:

I wish your daughter much success with her music and singing!
