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.

After one lesson I am confident Michael can get me where I am looking to go on the guitar. He has a vast understanding of musical theory and is available outside of lessons for additional help. Highly recommended!

I was lucky enough to do a few lessons with Jeremy before my schedule got out of hand and I had to cancel.. Jeremy is very knowledgable about music, great at teaching and I learned more from the few lessons with him than I have in years of trying on my own. Highly recommend picking up lessons with this guy - no matter what level you're at.

I have been playing the saxophone for over 20 years and have picked the guitar up a couple of years ago. I fumbled around with the instrument and tried to apply what I know of the sax to the guitar and have found myself obsessed with the world of new possibilities. I signed up for my first lesson with Jeremy and really liked his approach of listening to what interests me about playing the guitar. We talked about several new approaches to some ideas that I have gravitated to on my own and he has left me to try them out to see which path we should head down in the lessons to come. I like his way of relating the musical ideas through our conversation and am very much looking forward to our next lesson!

Jeremy is a superb teacher. After five lessons with him, I am playing jazz chord melody arrangements that I never dreamed I could execute. Jeremy explains complex musical ideas in language I can understand. When we're working on a song I not only learn how to play it but also what makes the song tick, and how I can apply that knowledge to other situations. He is patient, has a great sense of humor, and seems to know exactly what I need to learn next. I appreciate that he allows me to progress at my own pace and offers multiple techniques for achieving a particular playing goal so that I can find the approach that works best for me. I come away from each lesson fired up with new ideas that I'm eager to bring to the fretboard. I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for a guitar teacher. Whether you're a novice or an experienced player, he'll help you take your playing to the next level and he'll make your guitar journey a fun ride!

David-Paul Norman is a supportive and passionate teacher! In about 4-5 weeks, I went from being very insecure about singing, and not being very sure if I had any ability at all really, to successfully and confidently nailing my first musical audition. He understands that I am actor helps me find an entry way into singing by teaching me to set my intentions and imagine myself as a singer. As a beginner, I feel "introduced" to my voice and my range and I am beginning to understand what it can do because he picks songs that suit my voice nicely. I can see a lot of improvement with my voice and find it much easier to sing than before. Additionally, David-Paul demonstrates exercises very well and helps you understand how singing works from different aspects - how it mechanically works and how you feel different notes and vowels. I could feel improvement very early in my lessons, although to really explore your vocal capabilities and learn better technique you need to invest time as with any other skill in life. You will definitely expand your range, learn more about your style, and strengthen your imagination working with David-Paul Norman.
