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.

Stevie gives lessons to his students based on students' level and the contents of his lessons are well organized. These lessons demonstrate good combination of guitar playing techniques and music theories which make you feel they are connected and help you to not only improve the playing but also understand the instrument better. Besides, Stevie is very friendly, encouraging and easy to communicate with. I believe it's a great choice to work with Stevie to bring your guitar playing to the next level.

I have been learning from Mike, for last few months. Needless to mention he is a brilliant musician! Moreover, he is great teacher! He patiently explains the theory involved, tailors the exercise and above all demystifies the complexity of structures of music. I highly recommend his lessons.

Megan was very organized, and she customizes the lesson based on your aspirations. You’re provided with songs related to your interests and you can see measurable improvements during the same lesson. I’m curious to see where I could hit at the 6 month mark at the rate I’m improving under Megan. You will learn to focus on different aspects of musicality under Megan and learn more technical terms and techniques. Best of all, you’ll have fun practicing, singing, and listening to new songs. Make sure you have a clear idea of what you’d like to sing, as well as the class structure to get the most out of your lessons. Take her recommendations to heart and make the ones that work into habits!

After my first two lessons with Annie, she is absolutely fantastic! I’ve been working on a few songs for an upcoming project, and I was really struggling with my vocal solos. Not only was I unhappy with the sound I was producing, but I just couldn’t figure out how to use my voice the same way I’ve learned to use my other instruments; I’ve been a musician for a long time but just recently really started digging into singing. Annie helped me quickly identify a few key technical issues in my singing and showed me how to make great sound without using so much energy. Within minutes of implementing her suggestions, my voice already sounded clearer and more resonant. She showed me exercises to reinforce the concepts, and I’m looking forward to working more on the fundamentals with her. But Annie also helped me build a great ornamented vocal line for one of my tracks. She showed me how to weave the melody into my solo ideas so that the line was cohesive and fit within the overall context of the song. She really understood what I was going for and helped me refine what was in my head and explained how best to use my voice to express those musical ideas. I am really looking forward to continuing my work with Annie and am absolutely delighted at the progress she has helped me make so far. I highly recommend Annie for anyone looking to sing with better technical and musical control; she’s absolutely wonderful!
