All humans are meant to sing! Whether as a profession, a passion or both, anyone drawn to the musical art form is truly called to sing! And Justin Stoney tells us why!
Many have the misconception that they cannot sing, don't have perfect pitch, become nervous singing in public, or that they simply are not meant to pursue their craft. This is false!
In this conversation with Kerri Ho of The Songbird Tree, Justin tells us about his own journey of vocal discovery and how that ultimately led him to becoming a voice teacher.
“I never lost the love, I just fell more passionately in love with another; another called voice teaching and vocal coaching.”
We’ll cover the power of student transformation, Justin’s deep research of vocal twang, and the importance of vocal anatomy. But all the vocal knowledge in the world brings us back to one simple and salient truth: if you have the joy for singing, then you are meant to fill the world with that joy!
