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 Springfield voice instructors

I attended an introductory session with Carolyn. She seemed very knowledgeable in voice. I felt very comfortable with her. Due to personal reasons I was unable to continue past the introductory session, but would definitely return to Carolyn for lessons in the future. Great instructor!

I had an upcoming audition and I hadn't done performance singing in a few years. In order to prepare, I took a few lessons with Carolyn Smith. She is knowledgeable about the preparation process for an audition, as well as the actual singing lessons. We determined my singing range, then focused on perfecting the audition song. She is a positive and patient teacher, encouraging one over the tough spots while also challenging one to continue to improve each time with new techniques. She taught me how to adapt the sounds in the song to better show off my voice, how to add expression to my singing, and improve my overall sound (tone, projection, breath control, etc.). I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to improve his/her singing abilities.
