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.

Where can you get singing lessons?

You can receive singing lessons from a vocal instructor or voice coach on Thumbtack. Some instructors offer virtual lessons, while others may require you to come into a studio for instruction.

Reviews for Virginia Beach music teachers
Zech B.
Joe is an excellent teacher. His knowledge of the guitar and music theory make the lessons fun and he is good at finding teachable moments. He has a good grasp on what is manageable to learn in between lessons. I was nervous about doing lessons over Skype at first but it's much more convenient and I'm not missing anything.

Tanya was prompt in getting back to me regarding my request for piano lessons for my daughter. She was able to schedule my daughter's lessons during our first phone contact and was professional and thorough when discussing these arrangements with me. She seems passionate about music education and working with children and adults in this capacity, and my daughter and I are looking forward to the first lesson next week.

Not only is Edward a great guitar teacher, hes a great human being ! During our lessons its easy to see and hear the passion he has for not just music , but TEACHING music. He has a very romantic and spiritual look on music and is excited about spreading his knowledge. Ive just begun playing guitar and since starting with Ed its sparked a new love for practicing ! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants to to start on this extremely exciting adventure :)

Edward is wonderful and I am saying this with the confidence of having only one lesson thus far. He worked with me right away with scheduling and really had so much to say about the power of music, which is something I have always felt. I had experience in vocals and piano, but always wanted to learn guitar. I brought a $15 guitar with me to my first lesson knowing that Edward would need to restring it. Unbeknownst to me the guitar was pretty much worthless, so he helped me find a reasonably priced guitar on line and really had my best interest at heart. His follow up has been wonderful, giving me chords to practice and theory to follow. His teaches the guitar and lets you make it your own. Very nice and easy to work with and would highly recommend based on my passed music lessons.

Gabriel W.
Gabriel is a really good guy, picked him originally because we had very similar names and I thought it would be funny. Been taking singing lessons from him for over half a year now. His singing lessons are intuitive and out of the box so you never get bored. He's just a nice dude and wants you to succeed. My singing has improved more than I thought it ever would and I even started making my own music now. If you are on the fence with taking lessons because you're nervous, don't be, he is super understanding and makes you feel comfortable from the first lesson. Even after half a year I'm still nervous to sing infront of some people so it's normal, just go for it . He will make you feel less nervous. 10/10, will keep taking lessons from him for a long time.

My short but notable time with Edward Baker has been exceptional. His ability to connect the spiritual, emotional, and technical aspects of guitar playing and theory has opened my eyes to a new approach to music and its connection to personal fulfillment. His wit, knowledge, and humor (including great literature and instructional material recommendations) have me looking forward to each weekly lesson!
