I have now worked with Justin Stoney on two separate projects - one Broadway Musical and on Broadway Dramatic Play. 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.
By my calculations, I took 220,752,000 incorrect breaths before I started to do it right. Slow learner, I know. I'd breathed the same way for forty-two years. Then… Justin Stoney gave me a lesson.
Justin is the best vocal coach I've ever had! After my initial class with Justin, I remember thinking that it was the first time in my life that I had ever truly enjoyed a voice class. His method made me so excited and made me look forward to working on what we'd gone over and wanting to improve myself.
I'm a beginner singer and you have been my one and only inspiration to continue! Thanks Justin!
You have already taught me more than my year of private lessons in 2006... I will recommend to anyone who is looking for great vocal instruction.
These videos are changing my life.
I am a 60 year-old retired male beginner. I have wanted to sing all my life and have NEVER sang in front of anyone. I play guitar and have an ear for music. I had watched hundreds of videos online, and then I found Justin… He has convinced me I can, with hard work and dedication, find my voice.
Justin's not only a great teacher technically, he gives the emotional support that's crucial for people like me. All it takes is a willing suspension of disbelief for the 'student' to feel like Justin's saying, “awesome work!” to him or her alone. It's great that somehow that magic works! The other thing I like is the actual practice Justin has his audience do. His lessons make me want to try out what he's talking about, right then and there… It's a pleasure to have that chance in real time.
Thank You for the course. From what I have experience so far with your vocal course and NYVC in general I have nothing but good things to say about your approach and your team members. I am a beginner singer but I simply feel better singing and I feel that the simple vocal exercises are and will become a part of my daily routine. I had a funny moment today, I was doing beginner 2 exercise - “WOH” on 123454321 and right when my “WOH” turned into “WAAH” you said keep the “O” round and I fixed it back to “WOH”. So even if it is a digital course and we are not actually working live one on one it helps me.
Justin and his colleagues are doing amazing work at New York Vocal Coaching. Performers of all levels can develop the skills they need in a truly safe, supportive, and nurturing atmosphere.
In situations in which the Internet is the only resource available to learn from, it's a breath of fresh air to see a group of such passionate people as those of NYVC working to make personal visions and aspirations come true. Every day, I tune into VLLTW on the bus ride home, and as soon as I get into the house, I make the most out of the little time I have to myself to practice my newfound knowledge. Your team has kept my passion alive with the help and kindness you've extended to me, and I just felt you should know that the impact of your work is real and beautiful!
I’ll be honest… I was on the fence at first when I was going to purchase your course. I have spent so much time and money and have gotten only small or no results. I told myself that I was not going to spend anymore money on vocal courses. I purchased so many other courses over the years. I am being honest from the bottom of my heart. Your course offered me so much understanding and knowledge than any of those courses have ever been able to teach me. You are the first vocal coach that talks about a raised tongue and nose resonance. I always sounded flat or off key; nasal sounding… I never knew why until I saw your YouTube video. You were offering something that no one else has shown me – I was sold! And it’s not just me… Others are noticing my progress! That says everything.
I have viewed hundreds of vocal tips clips, purchased loads of singing lessons, and spent two and a half years following different exercises for hours with very little results. Let me tell you folks, no one is like Justin. I have only been doing his course for four weeks and I have already noticed a huge difference in my voice. The whole experience has been an eye opener, and his words are pure gold. What a great teacher.
Having found just by chance Justin's videos on YouTube I was so impressed by the way he taught that I knew I had to buy his course.
Music and singing have always remained important to me but it wasn't until two years ago that I finally started taking singing lessons (at the ripe old age of 62). Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?!!I was fortunate to find a fantastic voice teacher who has taken my voice way beyond what I thought it could do in that time. Even so, I also feel fortunate to have stumbled across your VLTTW Lessons on YouTube. Your lessons and exercises are an excellent supplement to what she is teaching me. They fill in the gaps in my understanding and round out the concepts I am learning from her. You are also a wonderful coach who keeps me from being discouraged with how far I have yet to go - and to keep that joy and passion for singing, as you always say. It is now part of my practice routine to actively view at least two of your lessons a week. Thank you for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and love of singing with “the world”.
