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 take a few lessons with Traveling Music and I am very happy. Colin is my piano teacher. He is on-time, knowledgeable, flexible and overall friendly. I am happy to be working from my home on my own piano. Overall I would highly recommend Traveling Music Lessons.

Best guitar teacher in Denver, hands down! Extremely knowledgable in a wide variety of music, and is very accommodating in putting together a lesson tailored to your playing style.

Really enjoyed my first lesson with Britt! I wanted to learn guitar to play songs for fun, and I’m less concerned about music theory, and she’s really great for that. She made our lesson fun and kept it engaging. Looking forward to learning more.

My first lesson at Allegro Music House with Jonathan was awesome. Jonathan was very articulate in troubleshooting where my pain points were and figuring out exactly where we need to work on first. I will try to remember to update my review as my lessons progress, but as for now I have weekly lessons with Jonathan and I am very excited to continue.

Great instructor. He is very patient and has a very understandable way of explaining things. He did often forget to follow-through with sending things (music, lesson sheets) or bringing them to the next lesson. If it wasn't for that minor issue, he would definitely get 5 stars!

I started taking lessons here about a year ago. My instructor was fabulous and well informed. I have not had any formal music training before going to sollohub school of music, and have progressed nicely since going there. My instructor is very patient and encouraging.

Amanda is always so cheerfully ready to teach my kids piano. She establishes discipline and joy for music. Her lesson plans are effective because I’ve noticed my (5 and 11 year old) kids grow musically inclined every week since we started with Amanda.

We started in May with Amanda from Dove Music Lessons. She is a great teacher and is very musically inclined. She is kind but assertive with our 6 year old. Our daughter has learned more in 3 months from Amanda than she learned in and entire year at Swallow Hill Music. We take advantage of the days she teaches "in home". But it is nice to know she offers make up lessons in her home as well if our schedule doesn't permit our normally day and time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn piano.

Lyles guitar lessons show you how to see the guitar as a greater picture within music, improving your phrases and leads with a thoughtful outlook on musical theory. Whether you want to play rock, blues, metal, or jazz, this guy has great guitar chops and wants to help you get better with yours.

Michael has been a great guitar instructor, he tailors each lesson to my abilities and the genres of music I enjoy most. The lessons are an excellent balance between theory and practical application that keep me challenged and excited for the chance to learn more. I would highly recommend him to guitarists of any level that want to quickly improve their skills.

Melody is teaching my 8 year old daughter piano and voice. She is very calm, patient, and encouraging and my daughter looks forward to her lessons. I was worried that a 45 min. lesson would be too long for a child, but Melody does a great job of alternating singing with piano and basic musical instruction to keep it interesting. She is very knowledgeable about music and has a comfortable studio in her apartment. We enjoy visting with her friendly labradoodle too! I'd definitely recommend her to anyone interested in piano, voice, or a combination of both.

Coire is a great teacher with a lot of knowledge to share. I have a few years of experience and he did a great job figuring out the state of my skill set and has tailored the lessons perfectly to push me forward without overwhelming me. His lesson homework is focused around actually making music and not just rote memorization of scales and patterns. Highly recommended to beginners and experienced players alike!

We hired Jordan to give lessons to our son (age 7). Jordan has been kind, patient, and works great with him. Our son loves playing piano, and we attribute his continued interest in music to Jordan's method of teaching. 5 stars!!!

I am so grateful to have taken guitar lessons from Paul. He is the most encouraging, inspiring guitar teacher and I learned so much from him. He always came to lessons prepared with new, fun songs that he'd taken the time to write out the music for! He met me at my level and knew just how to challenge me to help me grow as a player. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher and would suggest that anyone looking for lessons look no further than Paul. He's just the best.

Ms. Felice is engaging and fun to work with. She's super good at handling kids. Our shy, 6 year-old daughter has been learning from her over a year now and is looking forward to seeing Ms. Felice every week, although she doesn't enjoy practicing between lessons. We're skeptical at first about online piano lessons. Probably many people are like us. No worries. She's wonderful and shares a joy of music with you and your kids.

If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.

I’ve only taken about a few lessons and this team rocks my socks (pun intended). The owner, Tess, was my first lesson. She was amazing, she gave me a hint of musical theory and more to understand how to pursue my goals. Then I got lined up with my music teacher, Mike. He is wonderful! Versed in all sorts of different genres. He can listen to a song and simplify it for you. He is very patient and personable. He shows me how to teach my hand how to gain that muscle memory. I have already learned how to play most of Goo Goo Dolls - Iris (my choice), and gotten into Swing Life - Rise Against. Strumming patterns and some chords. I am a pretty high maintenance person with learning and was skeptical at first to try someone I wasn’t referred to…BUT I highly recommend this service.

I have only taken a handful of lessons with Melody, but I am very impressed with her teachings so far. I came in as a young adult knowing nothing about piano, and Melody has been an exceptionally patient teacher with me. She is so knowledgable and passionate about music that she made it her full time career. That passion and skill shows in all she teaches me, and she is a joy to be around. I would absolutely recommend her as a piano teacher!

I've been taking lessons from Melody for about 2 years now and have loved every minute of it! She's not only knowledgeable but very patient. My request was to start from the beginning even though I had played many years ago. Three music books later and I'm still excited about continuing to learn and we work at a pace that is good for me. I would recommend her to everyone at any age!!! Thanks Melody... you're wonderful!!! Suzann Bron 7/7/2019

I was a self-taught intermediate guitar player before using thumbtack to hire a teacher. I started out by trying out 2 other guitar teachers from Thumbtack. Justin really impressed me right off the bat for his knowledge of music theory and its practical application to help me achieve my guitar goals. I've seen drastic improvements already, and now have a much better understand of what I need to focus on. His lessons are really flexible and geared towards what I want to be learning. His rates are amazing, and he really goes out of his way to do an amazing job. I strongly suggest starting by booking him for one lesson and I am positive you won't regret it. Also a generally cool guy.
