Singing Teacher - how much can I get per hour?

Hello everyone! I need your help!

I'm a singing teacher and a ballad-pop singer. I've been singing for these last 10 years and I've won several contests (on TV and internet).

I've been touring around the world (UK, The Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland, Argentina,etc) and I've won another contest last year which gave me the possibility of recording my first album thanks to the support of a lot of people around the world.

I've been giving voice lessons for these last 3 years and I have a big experience singing in front of big audiences and important stages.

I'm planning to move to Switzerland as I have many friends there and it would be a major step in my career.

Do you have any idea about how much should I expect to get per hour, to teach private singing lessons in Switzerland?

Thank you so much..
I'd really appreciate your help.

Re: Singing Teacher - how much can I get per hour?

I go to a music school and my singing teacher is just AMAZING. She teaches piano, guitar and singing.

Her voice is nice but most importantly for me, she picks up every song i choose and plays it in the piano effortless, even if she hasn't listened to it before. Then she tells me where to breathe, how, etc...i dont know, i love my lessons with her.

School charges 70CHF per hour and then has offers, per half hour, per month, per year, per 10 times....


I hope this gives you a guideline.

good luck!

Go stand outside the railway station in Baar for an hour, that should give some idea

Re: Singing Teacher - how much can I get per hour?

Thank you so much Charlie and Delfinita for your help and advice. I really appreciate it
I'm not going to create a school to give lessons, I'm going to teach private lessons at home. I was thinking that with my experience I could get around CHF 60 per hour.. Do you think that would be fine?

Once again, thank you guys so much for your help..
All the best to you!

You're only worth what someone is willing to pay you....

I would think maybe Sfr 500.-- for 10 x 50 minutes may sound a little nicer, or possibly work with the school term timetable somehow, one term you do a bit more, one a bit less, it all evens out over the year.

Hi, I am Dominic. There is a music school in Zurich? I would really love to be able to attend some singing lessons, I am an actor by trade but my main majority of performances I have done has been musicals. I have not ever had singing lessons but would love some, to learn how to breathe properly etc. Hope you can help Thanks
Dominic x
