George E. says, "Kerry L. was patient and actively listened to the details surrounding my request for a jazz piano instructor. She then shared with me that she had just hired a piano instructor who specialized in jazz piano and wished to match me with him as soon as he had completed his required onboarding. In the meantime, she asked if I would have a session today with another one of her instructors (Amy) who she believed would definitely be able to assist me in the short-term - while I waited a couple weeks for her new jazz piano instructor. Amy S. was amazing. Took my unscheduled lesson with less than two hours notice. She was punctual, polite, responsive, and confident that she could help me. And she proceeded to thoroughly guide me through piano solo parts for 4 charts that I needed to get under my hand for tomorrow night’s big band rehearsal. I’ve sat with several online instructors. None as astute. Very much looking forward to a long learning relationship with Kerry L. and Lesson With You. Thanks so much!"See more

Brandon T. says, "THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO INVEST IN YOURSELF AND YOUR DREAM!! Aspiring dreamer here, in hopes of using my voice for great and important things in my future. I've been on an intensive quest to understand and find my voice and learn how it is to express my voice through song and art. For about 5 years I've tried to learn on my own, online courses, and some voice trainers; I made some progress, but not a progress I was satisfied with... There came a recent time that I desired more of something or someone that can truly teach me something that I NEED to know. I am one who believes in God and angels, and I believe Ms. Tanya had her experience of being an angel in God's auditorium. She is a true teacher who knows exactly how to unlock the voice in ways that are not known to the commoners. She emphasizes to you how to be aware of voice killing habits, false safety shields, and bodily position that you would never think about if she didn't call it out. She is a COACH so she integrates critique THAT WILL MAKE YOU PROGRESS! she doesn't tell you what you want to hear; that is exactly someone we all need right? Also SUPER flexible with scheduling! I've been taking lessons with Ms. Tanya for about 3-4 months now. from the time I started to now... I have been so much more confident and expressive in my singing voice, I stand up taller, I am so aware of the world inside of me and around me, and I am so excited about the future of what my voice could do with the help and coaching of Ms. Tanya Brandon Truong"See more

How much are cello lessons?

Cello lessons are a great way to anchor and guide your cello practice, regardless of your skill level. From top symphony performers to first-time music students in elementary school, cello lessons correct your flaws and help your strengths shine. The cost of cello lessons will vary, depending on the reputation and experience of your teacher, the length and frequency of your lessons, and where you live. Students who have regularly scheduled lessons and pay in advance often pay less per lesson than drop-in students who schedule lessons as needed. Here are some examples of average cello lesson costs:

  • 30-minute cello lesson: $30, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $35.
  • 45-minute cello lesson: $35, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $40-$45.
  • 60-minute cello lesson: $40, when a minimum of 4 lessons per month are pre-paid.
    • Cost for drop-in lesson: $50-$55.

How hard is it to learn to play the cello?

Taking cello lessons can be a rewarding experience for students young and old. The rich sound of the cello is well-loved in classical music and is found in all genres of contemporary music from modern folk to rock. As with any instrument, how hard it is to learn to play cello depends on the practice and dedication you put into it. It’s true that some people are naturally more adept at learning instruments than others, but with lessons and a daily commitment, you too can learn to play the cello.

Cello lessons can be a smart investment, especially for new players. Even professional cellists benefit greatly from ongoing training, but for those new to cello it’s especially important for forming a strong foundation for playing. From the proper posture to understanding finger positions, regular cello lessons give you a benchmark to measure your daily practice against. With a professional cello teacher guiding you, the sky’s the limit.

What are singing lessons like?

Every voice coach may have a different style of teaching, but here are a few things you'll likely experience during a singing lesson: 

  • Explaining to the instructor what you want to improve on.
  • Going through a few breathing and riff exercises.
  • Receiving constructive feedback and criticism from the instructor.

Before your first voice lesson, you can ask your instructor what you should expect and how to prepare.

How many singing lessons do I need?

It depends on what you’re hoping to accomplish with your singing lessons. Consult a highly rated vocal instructor to determine how many lessons you should take — and how often you should take them.

Do singing lessons actually work?

Yes, many students who’ve taken singing lessons say that their singing has gotten better. To find out if voice coaches near you have successfully taught others how to sing, read their customer reviews on Thumbtack.

What is a good age to start vocal lessons?

Whether you’re a novice or experienced singer, it’s never too late to start taking vocal lessons.

If you’re thinking about signing up your child for voice lessons, keep in mind that some instructors recommend waiting until their voice settles after puberty. Talk to voice coaches near you to find out if now's the time for you (or your child) to start taking lessons.

Where can you get singing lessons?

You can receive singing lessons from a vocal instructor or voice coach on Thumbtack. Some instructors offer virtual lessons, while others may require you to come into a studio for instruction.
