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.

First time taking a voice lesson and I could not be happier I did! Emo was so nice and so responsive. He taught me so much in one lesson. His tech set up was a really fun and a cool way to learn.

Our first lesson was fast paced! He dove right in and started helping me prepare for an upcoming audition. He has a lot of audition experience, and a good idea of what songs would fit my voice well. I would definitely recommend him.

Vanessa is wonderful. I needed some basic vocal training for my role as a lead singer in a tribute band, and I came to her with absolutely no singing experience. She was patient, skilled, and also pushed me when she knew I could handle the challenge. My band mates noticed the improvement in my voice just after a few sessions. Vanessa taught me basic music notation, and she also taught me how to identify my vocal range from head voice to chest voice to my 'belting' note. And she also taught me how to breathe properly so as to more effectively hold a note. Our sessions were 45 minutes long and I liked the routine she established, starting with stretching and breathing exercises, then moving on to scales and other vocal agility exercises, and then we'd end by working on a song, sometimes of her choosing based on my range and abilities, and sometimes of my choosing based on the songs my band and I wanted to work on. Lessons were held in her home in a private room, and she also recorded each session so at any time, I could go back and review and practice. Her fees are reasonable. Like any student-teacher relationship, the student will get what s/he puts into it. Vanessa is conservatory trained and is a professional musician/songwriter, so you know you're getting someone who's highly skilled and well-trained in music (piano, guitar) and vocals. I can't thank her enough for all she has taught me, and I would go back to her again for more intermediate/advanced training. Thank you, Vanessa!
