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.

David is a fantastic guitar teacher! I'm a bit of a guitar newbie but David does a really great job at giving me challenging lessons, but not too challenging in that I feel overwhelmed. At the first lesson, I told him some things that I wanted to work on and so far, he has really kept to that. David is fantastic guitar player and has an incredible ear for music. He listens to any song and can write it out for you within minutes! I'm looking forward to continuing to take lessons with David!

Dave Hall is the best music teacher I’ve ever had! I’ve been taking piano lessons with him for a few years now, and he is the most professional, patient, kind and helpful instructor out there. He’s very flexible with his lessons and will adapt his approach to his students’ goals and needs. I mostly play from a lesson book but occasionally need help playing specific songs, and he’s game for it all. His studio is comfortable and quiet, a perfect place to play or practice, and his neighborhood is beautiful.

Learning how to play piano was one of the most valuable experiences I had growing up. It has always been something that I wanted to reconnect with, but as an adult with other commitments in life, I simply couldn’t make time for it. With more time on my hands due to Covid this year, I began thinking about how this would be a perfect time for me to start learning again but I was unsure if remote lessons were going be as effective as in-person lessons. I couldn’t be happier about finally letting go of my own doubts and deciding to take online lessons with Jae. He is remarkably skilled in communication, through both words and music. Not only that Jae understands exactly what I am looking to learn and what I need to improve on, he is also capable of delivering his knowlege and insights on music in a way that anyone can easily digest. I have been seeing so much progress in my playing and have learned so much about how music works. I’d strongly recommend taking lessons with Jae!

David is an incredibly professional and a very knowledgable teacher, who helped structure lessons based on my own individual goals and interests related not just to piano but to music and music theory more general. I did work on individual pieces and his unique methodologies helped me to very quickly learn and piece together my solo piano piece. But more importantly for me, his ability to teach music theory allowed me to quickly understand chords, chord progressions and jump right into composing my own small pieces, which was my main goal for the lessons. We also spent some time working on the concept of improvisation, which was great for creating ideas in general and as an aid to composition. Something that I wouldn't have thought of on my own or known where to begin accessing resources. Finally, he's super accessible and quick to respond to questions about music or the piano, which makes him a great resource in and out of the lesson itself. If you're looking to find an expert pianist and a fantastic teacher, you can't do better than David!

I've had two lessons with Francis and it has been a blast. I'm learning both classic music and jazz with Francis and he is very knowledgeable in both fields. We are now extending our lessons from an hour to 1.5 - 2 hours. He understands how to delve down to the basics, and make sure that the students learn the skills to play well, and not just a single piece. Highly recommend!!!

As an intermediate pianist I was specifically looking for a tutor (and practicing pianist) who could help me improve my technique and musicality equally. After one lesson with Daniel I realized that he absolutely fits the bill. Daniel is a concert pianist, he is enthusiastic and passionate about the piano, but more importantly a natural teacher. I learned a huge amount in the first lesson and am excited to continue working with him.

Ryan Reid is the BEST piano teacher, audio engineer, music producer and performer! I highly recommend Ryan! He is talented, versatile, and reliable. I've hired him multiple times and have gifted his awesome lessons and amazing performances to other people. He is incredibly experienced, creative, fun, knowledgeable, and makes people feel comfortable and happy. Ryan is truly an expert and professional at piano and audio production. Most recently, he helped my friend reach her goals. She wanted to sing and record some tracks. Ryan gave her music lessons and recorded, mixed, mastered and even did the videography. She was extra happy with the piano performance he added to the tracks. Ryan was also able to provide professional videography to create a making of video in the comfort of a cool home. It's super cool to how he helped her reach her musical goals. Ryan also teaches my son in Brooklyn audio production using Ableton with piano lessons so he can create his own hip hop, rap, and trap beats to sell. My son says he is funny, authentic, and easy to learn from. If you're looking for an awesome, unique, creative piano teacher, music producer, or performer, I highly recommend Ryan Lee Reid. He's so funny and loves music. He is the BEST BEST BEST.

I played guitar for about 20 years with lots of on and offs in between, I was able to play metal riffs, some shredding, classical music and some music theory. being Jonathan's student took my playing to another level. within a short time (after a month) I already felt a huge improvement of my understanding of music theory, being able to improvise better, play cleaner and organize my routine into efficient practice that I can now see results way faster. beside his amazing personality and being super patient, Jonathan is one of the best guitar teachers I have met, I'm still surprised with how much I'm learning every time we have a lesson. If you have any doubt, just book a lesson and you will see what I'm talking about :)

I am taking jazz guitar lesson with Roger. He is very patient and professional in teaching. In his lessons, I not only get more familiar with guitar playing, fretboard expansion but also learn music theory, including different scales, modes, and chords. For improvisation, Roger can demonstrate various sounds with his guitar by applying different scales or techniques and he explain the content in a very clear way. I think he really helps me improve a lot not only in guitar playing but also the insights to different genres of music. Thus, I have more clear ideas about what I am playing and what sounds I am chasing for.

David is a great teacher, who is very willing to work with you. My lessons were mostly focused on music theory, but when David noticed my uncertainty on the direction the lessons were going, he made sure to help me refocus and reestablish both my long and short term goals. David is a teacher that will help you keep focus on what you're trying to achieve while also being opened minded to new possiblities if your goals ever change.

Coming back to guitar after a long break, I tried consuming most of my learning material through online videos. This was fine initially but I felt like I wasn’t making any meaningful progress on my own. I decided to contact Dom after seeing his profile on thumbtack and I’m glad I took that first step. Dom is incredibly knowledgeable about music, and he structures music theory lessons in a way that’s digestible for me.

Dierk has a genuine passion and understanding of music that shines through and allows him to create an atmosphere during the lesson that feels more like fun than work. His approach is intuitive, specific, patient, kind and engaging. I’m not only learning to play the piano I’m learning to love it while doing so. He’s the best!

I honestly truly had a great time while getting my lessons from Bright Enough For Broadway. It helped me in discovering parts of my voice that I never known existed. I was taught musical terminology I never been taught before, and important warm ups as well. Also everything was on done time, absolutely no lateness which I appreciate as a punctual person. I really really loved this lesson, I feel I learned so much and it made me a better singer than I was before. Now I have more confidence. They're really passionate in helping you reach your goal for your voice. I HIGHLY recommend lessons with Bright Enough For Broadway.

Matt is a talented and versatile player and teacher. He has a deep knowledge of jazz theory and piano technique, and adapts his teaching and feedback to my musical interests. I wasn't sure how remote video lessons would work, but he has a professional zoom setup and a great ear, so it's really not a barrier. I'm already noticing improvement and having a lot of fun playing!

Mara's been great with helping me get back into vocal shape after several years off. I had four weeks to prepare for a show I was not ready for and with Mara's help I was fine. She is wonderfully flexible about scheduling and location. Mara is friendly, approachable, she tailors lessons to what I want and need, but also isn't afraid to challenge me when I need that too. She's helped me work on songs I have no sheet music for, even offered to throw something together to work with! I'm so happy with my lessons and hope to continue working with her for a long time.

Annie is a wondeful teacher. At first when I decided to take vocal lessons I was afraid that I will not feel comfortable to sing infront of someone who is new. Annie made me so comfortable to sing infront of anyone and not feel shy about it at all. What I like about her too is that she tries to introduce me to new styles of music in order to improve my voice and breathing techniques. She also gives good advices that helps a lot!

My 11-year-old son and I started lessons with David a few weeks ago and it has been a great experience. My son is a beginner and I re-started piano, which I played for a few years as a kid. David is teaching us challenging and helpful practicing techniques and emphasizes working on developing musical details in our pieces. He is a great, versatile teacher who motivates his students well. I highly recommend him for both kids and adults.

I’m finally in a state of content in my life where I am able to afford to do things like my passions. One of my passions would be music, and I had my first guitar lesson on Thursday 🥺. Josh was so nice, patient, and kind. I even found that I am a fast learner, (I already knew some chords and scales, but I haven’t played in months nor knew much music theory) but I realize as I’m practicing, I am getting better and better when I practice daily for 30 minutes. Really taking the time out of your day for your passions really does help with your creativity and confidence. Shout out to Josh you the 🐐

My 8 year old girl and 10 year old boy have been talking about wanting to take music lessons for about a year now. My girl was interested in piano and my son wanted to learn guitar. I set them up with introductory classes at Guitar Center one weekend and they loved it. I get the kids every other weekend so trying to work out a schedule with the folks at Guitar Center was tough. A friend recommended I try Thumbtack where I first saw Drew’s profile. I noticed he taught both guitar and piano and his reviews were excellent so I sent him a note about what I was looking for and the schedule I needed to be on. He was extremely accommodating and worked the two lessons into his schedule. Drew has been teaching piano and guitar to my kids for about 3 months now. He’s extremely patient with the kids and he explains things very well. My daughter can be a handful at times, he has a way of keeping momentum throughout the lesson by keeping her focused and on-track. He makes the lessons fun for them and they get excited come Friday night and always ask if “Drew is coming tono

Tammy is absolutely AMAZINGGGG!!!! I have a somewhat introverted daughter an from introduction she had my daughter comfortable! In one lesson my princess played the beginning of FROZEN let it go and it was good! She left study material too, i'm very impressed! If you want to learn music from someone friendly, and knowledgeable call Tammy, you will not be disappointed! I plan to have her work with my daughter at least once a week. (and her prices are pretty friggin good too!!!) Chef Maria
