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.

We bought voice lessons for our son-in-law who has never sung before. He loves his lessons! We heard Jesse in concert. He sang an hour-long series of broadway hits (one of his many genres). He has a wonderful voice and range and is a great pianist. Really relates well to audiences and students

My instructor is very nice and professional. Being my first time ever taking a voice lesson, I was pretty nervous. However, My the instructor made me at ease right away.

Ed has a great understanding of the voice. We had several informative discussions during my lessons about the anatomy and mechanics involved in creating a pleasing sound, the difficulties involved, and exercises to improve upon it.

In my first lesson with Judy, she was able to discern what I'd been doing wrong that had been causing me difficulties getting into my mix voice. After a month of lessons, I can see significant improvement, and with Judy's extensive knowledge of pop vocals, I know I have much more to learn!

Judy has been helping me with some voice issues that I didn't realize I had. She is extremely efficient and gets right to the point and she knows what she's doing. In the first lesson she pointed out something that helped me right away. I look forward to continuing to work with her and getting my voice where I've always wanted it to be.

Denise is WONDERFUL! She's fun, kind, and understanding. Her work ethic is responsive and flexible, and she makes even the most novice vocalist (me) look forward to the lessons. We do creative exercises, and even after the first lesson, I felt like my ear was more trained, and I could more readily make out the notes. If you're thinking of taking voice lessons, I highly recommend Denise!

I have been in choirs and in various other musical settings for 12 years and have experienced many different teaching styles. When I initially started individual voice lessons, I was with an instructor who had a "one teaching method, fits all" approach to teaching. After about 4 months of lessons, I gave up and began looking for a new instructor... someone who would identify my weak points and help me develop a stronger, more balanced voice. After many, many initial interviews, I was very discouraged... until I met Emily. Emily invests in her students. She came up with a daily vocal routine specifically tailored to me and remained in constant communication with me about any questions I had. Not only is she continuously helping me identify my struggles and build technique but she also has taken the time to show me that I have many options of making it as a serious musician. Because of her, I am in the process of re-evaluating my whole academic plan. I am so grateful to have found such an amazing, talented, and skilled instructor! I am learning so much from her continuously!

Do yourself a favor!!! I have only great things to say! I had never once sung in front of anyone. Not sober at least. Ha. But I recently have decided to get out of my comfort zone as much as possible. And try the things that have intrigued me. Singing was at the top of list. Our lessons are efficient and professional. With a realistic human touch to expectations and performance. If I am ever uncomfortable and she senses it, which she has a knack for, she calms me and shows me the proper techniques to overcome my insecurities. With a focus on technique and fundamentals I can’t wait to progress and find the voice I’ve always had but never had the proper to teacher to dig deep with me.
