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.

Mindy was so great with our son in helping him with his singing. Not having had any voice training, and having to sing a solo in a play, he was very anxious about taking voice lessons. After the first lesson he was very happy and thrilled with Mindy's approach to the voice training. She was patience, very insightful and gave him some great techniques to use to stay within his range and meet some notes that he had to hit. She even gave him pointers on how to combat stage fright. Our 14 year old son gives her 5 stars too and that's saying a lot. We would highly recommend Mindy for voice training!

I’ve been taking lessons for 2 years and she’s helped me so much. I’ve improved a lot since I started and it’s because she has a solution to every problem of the voice. She’s really enthusiastic to help you push through every problem you encounter and you always leave the lesson sounding even better.

I have only had a few lessons with Annie and my voice has already improved immensely. I am so thankful I found such a great teacher. She helps me visualize what I need to do with my voice to make the notes effortless. She is also helping me with musicianship and gives me personalized vocal warm ups. I sing regularly in theatre and in worship at my church and noticed over the years that my voice was tiring out and getting sore. Annie has helped me become aware of my bad habits when I sing, and has helped me improve my vocal health. It has definitely been worth the investment. I can't wait for the improvements to continue as the lessons continue.

Mindy demonstrates great technical knowledge and the ability to convey that knowledge in easy steps. I am very happy with Mindy's voice teaching/coaching. She helped me feel at ease from the start and throughout the session. She gave me numerous techniques to improve my singing. I have great confidence in Mindy. I plan to continue taking lessons with Mindy. Gary Evans

Working with Sarah has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!! I started out as a BRAND NEW singer— hardly ever even singing in the shower! I was very nervous, shy and had absolutely no singing skills. Sarah helped me feel comfortable right away and gave me set exercises to practice everyday to develop my voice. Since working with Sarah my singing range has increased tremendously and I’ve developed a much more full and consistent tone. I’ve been working with her for 2 years now and continue to grow and evolve as a singer with every lesson. Sarah is amazing at breaking things down in an easy-to-understand way and is very encouraging and positive. She always makes lessons fun and encourages me when I get frustrated. I HIGHLY recommend working with Sarah— she’s an amazing teacher that delivers results!
