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.

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.

Reviews for music teachers

I've been a piano student of Anne Delaney for 4 months. I am very pleased with her style of teaching. She incorporates much more into the lessons besides the basics of reading and playing music. Anne really works on technique, dynamics, tempo, mood and imagery, and the historical background behind the music I am learning. She is patient and warm, and I always enjoy our lessons.

I've been taking Jaime's guitar course for a few months now, working on guitar technique, music theory and ear training, and I feel I'm a lot more confident with guitar now. Jaime is really patient and he always tailors his lesson to student's interest and need. He is also detailed oriented, catching the issues that I would never notice on my own. I would definitely recommend his lessons!

Michael consistently provides me with excellent guitar instruction. I have progressed much since starting lessons about 6 months ago. He provides insight, and good tips as a professional musician in our 1 hour sessions. It makes me want to focus more on my guitar playing, and I am pleased when I get results beyond my expectations when I apply his recommendations. He is punctual, as well. He asks me what I am interested in musically to customize his teachings to my interests. The investment is absolutely worth it!

I am an adult piano learner. I started learning basic piano techniques about 1 year and 3 months ago from some other teacher. After about 10 months learning, I started feeling frustrated and not progressing at all. I don't want to give up on piano and hence decided to look for another teacher for a second try. And that's when I found Cheryl, which proves to be a super great find. Cheryl has a really good training system/process for beginners. She had me focused on my finger techniques in my first couple of lessons and after that, I started playing some beautiful melodies together with the finger training. I could clearly see my progress through the time. She has a high standard on passing each song, so every time I completed one, I felt really happy about the outcome. And Cheryl's class is much more than just the techniques, but also the music understanding, the music theory or history behind each melody. I enjoy every class with Cheryl and always look forward to the next one. Cheryl used to teach professional music students back in China. I felt really lucky to have her as my piano teacher. She is a really great and professional teacher and a very nice person. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn piano, especially those who want to learn it seriously.
