Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much are singing lessons?

Singing lessons cost $50 per hour, on average. Hourly rates can range anywhere from $40-$80. However, some vocal instructors may charge flat rates or offer packages. They may also offer 30-minute lessons for a lower price. Or, they might require monthly tuition for ongoing classes. It depends on the voice coach. 

Contact vocal instructors near you to get a sense of how much singing lessons cost in your area.

How can I find a good voice teacher?

Use Thumbtack to find a good, top-rated voice teacher near you. With Thumbtack, you can view the teachers’ profiles, read their client testimonials and check their ratings. To ensure you hire the best instructor, ask them questions about their credentials and success with other students. You should also get cost estimates from at least three instructors before you make your decision.

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.

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.

I decided to start lessons for our 5 year old with Mrs. Dawn's company because it was evident that she had a passion for music and was committed to pairing us with a skilled teacher.

Bryson is a great music teacher. I have leaned a lot from just a couple lessons. He is flexible with my schedule and has reasonable pricing. Highly recommend to anyone looking to learn or improve their guitar skills. Thanks Bryson! :)

I have had one lesson with this dude and I will say that I am mighty impressed. I chose him because he has a reasonable fee and had good reviews, but honestly he could be charging more. If you have been like me and have been putting off guitar lessons, hire this pro NOW and get some beautiful music coming from your instrument. Not only was he a good music instructor, but he was able to teach guitar concepts in a way that made sense to me as a professional computer programmer! Now that is talent. Do yourself a favor and hire him today!

I wanted to sign my husband up for guitar lessons for Father's Day and I am so happy I found MadChair. He enjoyed the lessons so much and is going to continue them. He is excited to go every week and his playing has improved. He says he learns so much every week and also enjoys the instructor since he has a vast amount of knowledge and diverse musical taste. I highly recommend MadChair. The studio is open but he offers virtual lessons as well.

My son has been taking guitar lessons with Robert and it has been the best experience. He has never truly learned to play an instrument before, so I was a little worried how he would take to it. Robert has been wonderful from the start. He's kind, patient, encouraging, and very easy going. This has allowed my son to want to continue to take lessons bc doesn't feel pressured and stressed. Robert also picks the coolest music. It's music that my son can relate to or has heard before. Even with all the restrictions with COVID, Robert has figured out how to give Ben his lessons via FaceTime, which has worked out perfectly. I am so pleased not only working with this company, but with having a quality teacher like Robert!!

Dr. Cohen has been wonderfully patient with me and helped me progress. My story with the piano is that I started lessons at age 3 years and quit at age 14 years. I am now almost 79 years old and have decided it's time to return to the instrument I love. Of course my fingers are stiff and I'm very slow but after 3 lessons i am definitely making progress. She is just outstanding and I feel as if she has given me back the gift of music!

I’ve taken a few electric guitar lessons from Bryson. He is nice and knowledgeable. My friends and I have already noticed my guitar playing skills have gotten a lot better since I’ve started my lessons with Bryson. The value is on point. And it’s definitely a level up if you go to his studio where he can get on the drums while you play. That’s a lot of fun and brings a new dynamic to creating music rather than only playing solo on the guitar, which is what I already do at home. I really enjoy my sessions with Bryson because he gives me feedback that will help improve my playing that I cannot or would not be able to see/learn for myself, and he also gives me resources and strategies to practice on my own time. I look forward to my next lesson with him!

Tim was an incredible surprise! This is my third attempt at taking guitar lessons and I've finally achieved success! Tim is an easy going guitar teacher with a great sense of humor and a lot of knowledge about music. He makes learning how to play the guitar fun and easy, without any pressure or guilt. He's very encouraging and I'm actually playing! Even my family has allowed me to play in the same room with them after only 6 months! If you're looking for a guitar teacher, Tim is your man. He rocks - sorry, had to say it!
