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.

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. 

How can I find a good voice teacher?

I have been taking voice lessons with Morgan for several weeks now and I could not have asked for a better teacher. She is knowledgeable and it shows in the lessons--she provides a lot of feedback and answers any questions that come up. Her positive teaching style encourages me to practice outside of lessons and makes me look forward to the next lesson! Highly highly recommend to anyone looking to take singing lessons.

I started lessons with Stephanie back in March and she has been a great teacher! I've already felt myself improving my breath control and intonation (she has perfect pitch!). She is patient, kind, and flexible. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher to anyone interested in taking voice lessons!

I have been working with Marilee for a few months now and it has been an amazing experience so far. Apart from helping me improve and find my singing voice, she has been able to help me work on my confidence when it comes to singing in front of others. Marilee is very personable, dedicated and also really cares about her students. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for voice lessons.

Dr Stephanie is a very patient and caring teacher. My son enjoys lesson very much and he is always telling me how much he has learnt each and every week. She is very understanding and considerate. She is also very knowledgeable in the human voice and knows exactly where to work on to help my son.

Jane has been so helpful and so patient teaching me piano and vocals. I came in not knowing anything! She is great at explaining things I don't understand. She is truly an amazing teacher. She's helped me find confidence in my voice and musicality, and I can't recommend her enough. We have a lot of fun in our lessons!

Caitlin is a brilliant singing teacher, she is very knowledgeable, intelligent, and is able to explain the fundamentals and mechanics of singing clearly. She is also very good at putting me at ease as I’m generally nervous about my singing. Most importantly my voice has greatly improved in a very short space of time thanks to her and I look forward to continuing taking lessons.

I've seen Dr. James Lent 4 times so far and I've seen a lot of improvement in my voice already. At first I was extremely nervous and he quickly made me comfortable. He's super encouraging and supportive and makes it fun. I like that he splits the lessons between practicing my range then he let's me choose a song I want and we practice that.

Before I started getting lessons from Kevin, I had another vocal coach she was good . But Kevin really helped me improve my breathing and has really great technics to improve and help you find your voice and make it consistent . These past months I’ve noticed the difference in my singing . Definitely would recommend to anyone who’s trying to learn/improve their singing !

Dr. Stephanie is great! I've only been taking singing lessons with her for almost 2 months now, and I feel like i've learned so much. I came in with absolutely zero experience in singing and she was very patient with me learning from scratch. I'm naturally a very self conscious person and she made me feel very comfortable immediately. I've already started to see and feel improvement in my voice. She's also just a very awesome person in general, she's super nice and encouraging and makes you excited to come back for the next lesson.

I used to be able to sing but now I merely croak. I just began weekly voice lessons with Natalia and after only one session my pipes are stronger and my range has improved. As a teacher she is both a delight and knows her stuff. Best of all, she's extremely encouraging and creates an environment that allows you to make mistakes. The location is both professional and warming, just like Natalia.

I reached out and Jacob and I connected shortly after. We spoke about my experience, desires and my goals and he paired me with Corinne. And I must say that LOVE my lessons with her! He was right on the nose to pair me with her. She is professional, very knowledgeable, and I feel like I am on my way to getting my voice back into shape. My experience with Jacob Burton Studios has been excellent. I highly recommend them!
