VOICE LESSONS AND VOCAL COACHING

For Vocal Coaching and Voice Lessons with our Associate Vocal Staff, we offer a "Sliding Scale" of $70-120. Our Sliding Scale is designed to help singers afford high-level voice training in New York. The Sliding Scale offers financial flexibility for our clients. You decide the rate that is most appropriate for your financial situation. The rate that you pay for lessons is a personal choice with no questions asked. You may also alter what you pay at any time if your financial situation changes.

On average, singers pay $85 for lessons with the Associate Vocal Staff. In general, singers with a lower income such as college students and emerging artists pay the low end of the Sliding Scale. Celebrity clients and higher-income individuals generally pay the high end. Singers with moderate-income pay the average rate of $85 or somewhere between the Sliding Scale that fits their situation.

The Sliding Scale operates on the old-fashioned principle of the ‘honor system’. Although this approach may seem quite unique to New York and to the entertainment industry, it remains our foremost mission to help singers achieve their goals. Even though our Voice Teachers are in high demand, we strive to create opportunities where professional vocal training can be affordable to singers of all backgrounds. Please don’t hesitate to ask us if you have any questions about our Sliding Scale.

A one-hour Introductory Voice Lesson with Mr. Stoney or with a New York Vocal Coaching Associate is available for new students interested in studying voice with our teachers at New York Vocal Coaching. We do try to accommodate new students interested in the opportunity of studying with Mr. Stoney, but please be aware of high demand for these appointment times.

Intro Lessons are not different from regular lessons in terms of the amount of vocal technique work that is accomplished. Students can expect to see tangible improvement in their vocal technique and vocal understanding in their first lesson.

NYVC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

We are honored to serve the New York vocal community and singers from around the world with the NYVC Scholarship Program. The NYVC Scholarship Program is available to a limited number of students with both a severe financial need as well as an extreme dedication to studying singing. Sometimes we receive inquiries from a singers with severe financial situations, making it virtually impossible for them to study singing privately. Since it is our Mission to provide vocal training opportunities to singers worldwide, we created The NYVC Scholarship Program to assist those in truly unfortunate circumstances.

While the NYVC Scholarship Program is limited to a small number of qualified students, we don’t want to discourage anyone who is truly passionate about singing. So, if you have an extreme need and there is absolutely no means of affording lessons within our Sliding Scale, please contact us to discuss applying for the NYVC Scholarship Program.

Before applying, please keep in mind that a scholarship should not be sought as a "discount". We believe that our Sliding Scale system creates a positive situation artists for artists of all backgrounds by providing considerable financial flexibility. Scholarships are only awarded to those who have a very serious need. Students may apply if they are able to demonstrate both the severity of their financial need as well as their extent of their dedication to studying singing.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Before beginning lessons at New York Vocal Coaching, all students are asked to agree to and abide by our Cancellation Policy, which is as follows:

Lessons cancelled with 24 hours or less notice (lesson start-time) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FULL CHARGE

Lessons cancelled with 48 hours or less notice (lesson start-time) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $50 Cancellation Fee

All sessions must be cancelled by sending an e-mail to the New York Vocal Coaching Assistant (assistant@newyorkvocalcoaching.com). All sessions cancelled within 24-hours of the appointment start-time must be compensated in full. Due to high demand for sessions, appointments cancelled with less than 48-hours notice will be charged a $50 fee. New York Vocal Coaching and Associates respectfully request 72-hours notice when canceling appointments, but there is no fee unless cancellations are made less than 48-hours notice. Again, please note that verbally informing your instructor of potential cancellations does not constitute a cancellation. All students must communicate scheduling changes and cancellations to the New York Vocal Coaching Assistant who handles all company scheduling. Out of fairness and courtesy to all teachers and students, please note that we can make no exceptions to this policy. This includes cancellations due to illness, weather, transportation problems, etc..

Clients are encouraged to understand this policy on a variety of levels:

  1. It Makes Teachers Better

    Cancellation policies protect the time, energy, and devotion of hard-working teachers. This benefits students because teachers are better able to maintain a high level of passion, devotion, and energy to teaching and helping students achieve their goals. It is courteous to value teachers’ energies by giving them ample notice for cancellations and compensating their time when you cannot.

  2. It Makes Students Better

    By placing importance and responsibility on high-level training and lessons, students maintain a deep commitment, strong work ethic, and understanding of professionalism. All New York Vocal Coaching Associates are professionals that have also been students for many years. We understand that cancellation policies sometimes are difficult and can even seem unfair or frustrating. Nonetheless, rest assured that every New York Vocal Coaching Associate has learned the value of treating lessons with deepest commitment and has respected their own teachers throughout the years by observing their cancellation policies. This is a very important part of showing teachers that their time is valuable. Respecting the hard work and time of fellow artists is paramount to being successful as an artist.

  3. It Makes Other Artists Better

    Lesson times fill up very quickly. New York Vocal Coaching teachers can sometimes find their schedules fully booked 3 weeks or more in advance. There is also often a waiting list for times. Since this is true, a cancellation policy is even more important. Students often need sessions at the last minute for major auditions, recordings, performances, or opportunities. It is impossible to help students achieve success when cancellations are given with little notice. By striving to give 72+ hours notice for cancellations, students can help fellow artists succeed by allowing them access to unused lesson times that may be very important to them.

Your understanding of the Cancellation Policy is greatly appreciated. New York Vocal Coaching is committed to ensuring a fair situation for all students. Please know that we care, love, and respect each and every student. Enforcement of the cancellation policy is not meant personally, but is simply a part of professional studies in any leading New York voice or music studio. We thank you again for your courtesy and respect for your teachers in honoring the Cancellation Policy.
