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.

It's been a great start to piano lessons for my kids. She came prepared with sheet music for songs they like to help motivate/interest them even more.

Mark Deffenbaugh is an awesome instructor! I have been taking lessons from him for four months now and he is turning me into one great pianist. He teaches theory, techniques and posture. I am really blessed and fortunate to be a student of Deffenbaugh House of Music!

Micheal is an absolutely fantastic teacher who comes with my highest recommendation! Before working with Micheal, I considered myself a mid-level beginner, somewhat functional guitar player with a strong background in music theory and other instruments (I'm a college music major). After about 6 (very enjoyable) months with Micheal, I have gained valuable technical skills, fun, interesting, and varied repertoire to practice, and a newfound love for the guitar. He has tailored our lessons to fit my goals, interests, and background, and every lesson features much learning and laughing! If you're looking for a guitar teacher with an endless stream of knowledge who will help you reach your individual goals (while having tons of fun along the way), look no further!

Julia is fantastic! I started piano lessons with Julia over a month ago and have been so impressed by her knowledge and passion for the piano and her patience and professionalism as a teacher. She is encouraging and creative and very fun to learn with. She goes out of her way to find music that fits your skill level that will help you play the pieces you love. I highly recommend Julia to anyone looking to learn piano or improve their piano skills!

I have been a student of Sarah's for a year now and it has honestly been the best experience. Sarah's attention to detail, professionalism, and deep knowledge of music are all qualities clearly demonstrated in class by the way she is able to devise an individualized curriculum that caters to just you in order to improve on your specific weaknesses. She also has such a warm and caring personality that makes classes incredibly fun! Although I am not the best learner when it comes to vocal stuff as a complete beginner, Sarah has been incredibly encouraging, supportive, and great at breaking down vocal strategies/techniques to a level that I can understand. She is a great communicator and isn't afraid to change things based on your feedback - she really cares about helping you improve your voice and technique! I personally have definitely seen a major change and improvement in my voice under her tutelage. Sarah is also incredibly gracious and understanding with busy schedules and works with you in order to make sure you get the most out of each lesson when you can. If you are looking for a vocal coach worth the value, look no further because I highly recommend Sarah!
