We Are Meant To Sing

Founded in 2005 by award-winning voice teacher & vocal coach Justin Stoney in 2005, New York Vocal Coaching is blessed to have become one of the largest vocal training companies in the United States. Now with over two dozen instructors across a variety of disciplines and dozens of Voice Teacher Training alumni, our students have reached #1 on the Billboard Charts, received Emmy and Tony awards, signed with major record labels, toured the US and internationally, and much more.

It all began with our core belief that humans are meant to sing. We are meant to sing for Joy, for recreation, for healing, for praise, for recognition, and for the soul. There are endless reasons to “Make A Joyful Noise!” Each and every staff member at New York Vocal Coaching believe that singing is not for a few of us — singing is for all of us.

I have now worked with Justin Stoney on two separate projects… In both instances, through his masterful and thoroughly exhilarating technique, I felt I transitioned from “insecure, hopeless, frustrated and strained” to confident, free and relaxed! Justin understands not only the voice and breathing, but acting and sustainable technique. I'm thankful I now have a vocal coach for life.

Voice Lessons

We'll focus on vocal technique to increase vocal range, build vocal strength, blend smoothly between head voice and chest voice, achieve mixed voice and belt coordinations, master multiple musical and vocal styles, sing high notes with ease, and eventually achieve technical and artistic mastery.

Vocal Coaching

We'll help you prepare for auditions, performances, or the recording studio. Vocal Coaching sessions focus on performance strategies, stage presence, musical choices, stylistic nuances, microphone technique, and learning how to sing different musical styles.

Voice Teacher Training

We equip teachers with all the tools needed for a successful, professional vocal studio. Trainees gain a masterful understanding of vocal pedagogy as it applies to singers of all levels, backgrounds, and musical styles, with opportunities to observe at New York Vocal Coaching, study, and apply techniques in practical ways.

Justin is a fantastic teacher. Working with him has given me more confidence, expanded my range, and gotten me through months of touring - sometimes doing multiple shows a day. His knowledge and clarity about the physicality of singing would be a great benefit to singers in any genre. And, his lessons are actually fun!

The NYVC Voice Teacher Training was a complete game-changer for me...as a teacher, as a singer, and as an artist. I found the program to be the most comprehensive and detailed course of any I have ever taken. And Mr. Stoney is the world's most loving, hands-on teacher, as he guides you through each and every moment....SO generous with his valuable time and talents, that together, my classmates and I left no stone unturned when it came to the “how-to's” of vocal technique and pedagogy. I can truly state that you will come out of this program with the tools to teach ANYONE to sing.
