I am a retired Medical Technologist who has a passion for music so much so that when I was in high school I watched The Sound of Music around 14 times and memorized all the songs in that movie. So since I loved music I decided long ago

Justin is a wonderful teacher. I used to take voice lessons years ago, and recently realized how much I missed singing. I searched for voice teachers online, found Justin's website, and after reading the fabulous testimonials, I decided to book a trial session. I was completely impressed with Justin's vast knowledge, positivity, and obvious talent. It's been about 4 months, and I have certainly noticed an improvement in my vocal range and ability, as well as a much needed self-esteem boost--all thanks to Justin. I definitely recommend booking a session with Justin. You won't regret it!!

Justin is AMAZING. I had never taken voice lessons until I came here, but he quickly made me feel at home and my singing has improved since day 1. He quickly identified my problems and we worked on making them better and healthier, and of course sound a hundred times better! Not only did my voice improve but so did my confidence, I feel much more confident and comfortable singing. He is such a sweet and knowledgeable vocal teacher and I will definitely be going back!! Oh, and his cat Manny is the cutest creature ever!!! Justin, you're the best, I can't thank you enough!!

Justin is simply the best voice teacher I have ever experienced. I am so grateful to have been recommended him. In a few lessons I have experienced a huge difference in my voice. I have always struggled with belting and Justin has shown me the correct way to use my voice, explaining the physical mechanics of the breath and vocal chords and patiently moving through exercises and songs. My voice is now moving seamlessly from the low notes to high with a beautiful mix with no strain. At last a wonderful voice teacher who is also sweet, kind, positive and helpful. I now have hope to be able to sing the way I always dreamed I could. Thank you so much Justin!!

I first had the pleasure of working with Justin as my vocal coach. We started working together over 2 years ago when I was feeling creatively blocked. Our work together gave me the confidence I needed to trust my technical abilities for the first time, so I could really begin to free my voice. Recently, I hired Justin as the musical director for my first professional one woman-show at the 92nd Street Y, here in NY,NY. His passion as a musical director, his guidance with song selections, and professionalism and skills as an accompanist, set the tone for a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Justin as a vocal coach, accompanist, and musical director for the sensitive artist who is ready to take their dreams to the next level!

Pros: A vocal coach, accompanist, and musical director

Cons: More vocal artists should know about Justin Stoney

.

I have worked with quite a few vocal teachers, and Justin Stoney is by far the best. Our voices are precious things to us, and because of this it is sometimes difficult to learn to take risks and develop confidence in our gift. Justin has an amazing way of teaching people to find the beauty of thier voice and helping people recognize their inner genius. Also, he REALLY knows his craft, and will teach you what you need to know to understand in order to better your own. Seriously, he really really knows what he is doing. I have been studying with him for 2 months, and I am a completly differnt singer than I was before I started. People stop me to tell me what a great voice I have, that is all thanks to Justin (New York Vocal Coaching)

Pros: professional, friendley, genius

Cons: the upper west side has too many adorable dogs

I always loved singing and desired lessons, but at the same time, I felt intimidated by formal instruction. A friend recommended I try a session with Justin. His warm, gentle demeanor put me at ease, while his encouragement inspired confidence. I find that I happily anticipate my lessons, and I love that my progress is evident each and every time. Professionally, as a dancer and a nutritionist, I've had the privilege of working with many talented performers and teachers. Justin is right up there with them, and his students' steady progress is proof. I heartily recommend him. I know you won't be disappointed!

"I was introduced to Justin through a mutual friend from back home. I was certain after one lesson that this was the guy that was going to mold me into the professional and consistent singer I have always hoped and knew I could be.

Like many Belt Divas, I had formed bad habits throughout the years. Justin quickly noticed the areas that needed assistance and started to address the issues constructively and effectively.
Justin is truly a Vocal Doctor. He diagnoses quickly and prescribes the right medicine even faster. I have only worked with Justin for a few months and already have noticed and incredible difference with my breathing, vocal capacity and stamina as well as range. He has done wonders and I know he will shape me into the performer that I want to be.

Let it also be known that if you have grown up primarily as a dancer or singer/dancer then Justin is the coach for you. Dancers have a hard time letting go and allowing themselves to maximize breath. I am one of those dancers. Through many exercises and simple verbiage and explanation I have already begun to accomplish sounds that I never knew I even had. A true Master.....Justin Stoney."

Pros: Professional, Constructive and Knows what he is doing!

Justin is amazing. There??s really no better way to put it. I??ve been with him since December 2009 and couldn??t be more pleased. I had taken lessons with another company right before Justin and had not had the best experience so I came to Justin with a chip on my shoulder. The difference with him was unbelievable. He is just so positive, patient, and helpful. I think I??ve asked him about 10,000 questions about singing and his advice on auditions, in general. He is always so sweet and eager to help. He has a way of explaining things and helping you to find your voice and what certain things should feel like in your body that totally makes sense! I know he prefers when people pick their own music so they have a connection with it, but I wanted him to help me pick a song that he thought would be good for my voice. He happily acquiesced. Cut to 2 months later, I had a new song that I picked out myself and didn??t want to work with the old song anymore. He wasn??t frustrated with my flakiness and was just as pleased to work with the new song. It??s easy to tell that he loves what he does and it makes it that much better to work with him! Like I said before, long story short, he??s amazing.

Pros: Talented, Helpful, Patient, Friendly

Cons: That I Didn't Find Him Before

Justin Stoney is an absolutely AMAZING voice teacher. As a life coach, I support and empower people to achieve their goals. And this is exactly what Justin does for my voice. He has developed a unique method to teach in an inspiring way. He believes in my ability even more than I do. His sincere manner and the enthusiasm he exudes are most precious gifts for his students. He always responds to my state of mind and figures out what I need to learn at that moment. The exercises he has designed are customized for each student. He is encouraging and yet constantly challenges me to broaden my vocal range. I was often surprised at how good I sounded after the warm-up sessions. He's kind, patient, and generous. I always leave his lessons feeling lighter, happier, and more accomplished! Though I am an amateur, I have experienced dramatic improvement in the last 8 months during which I've taken classes with him. I can not recommend him enough for anyone who wants to improve their vocal ability.

I came to Justin as a somewhat mature artist (dance) but a complete beginner with the voice. The first major strength of his teaching is his flexibility--the ability to tailor his teaching to your specific goals. I was interested in learning as much as possible as quickly as I could, and I'm very happy with the results about 4 months into it. He identified my major problems right away, and balances targeted technical training with activities that solidify and showcase your strengths. He has a broad appreciation for musical genres. His approach in minimally dogmatic, if at all...one of those "lifetime learner" types. :) I'd recommend Justin to anyone, at any level, who will take advantage of his ability to help you make great progress.??

Pros: exceptionally talented and goodhearted.

Cons: Keeps getting more in demand and thus more expensive

I have only had a few lessons with Justin, but he has taught me more in those few hours than I have learned in years of training. His passion for music really shines through and he infuses that passion into his students. I was initially insecure about certain aspects of my voice, but because of his encouragement I am now confident. I am very eager to keep improving and I am thrilled to be studying with Justin. He is truly a wonderful person and a phenomenal vocal instructor.??

I am not a musical theatre actress and so I have always been insecure about going in for musical auditions. I did a session with Justin back in February because I had a musical audition. He was very precise with the musical points he taught me without overwhelming me with how little I know of my voice or how much work I have to do to improve it. I went in feeling very confident from my coaching. I got a callback but I only had one night to learn a new song. Justin was very kind and generous to teach me the song and sent the recording thru email despite of his loaded schedule. I booked the job, and it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have. I am still taking lessons from him. He is an incredible teacher, with an amazing ear, a positively encouraging attitude, and patience.

After many years I decided to return to voice lessons. After doing an online search I found New York Vocal Coaching. When I reviewed the website I had a strong suspicion that this was the right place for me. My intuition was correct! Justin is a great teacher. He is warm, personable,genuine and brilliant at what he does. He allows you to guide the session and it becomes not only about voice but about healing and growth as well. In a short time he has helped to clear up some blocks in the way I was using my voice and I am singing notes and songs that I never thought I could sing. I feel lucky to have found Justin and New York Vocal Coaching,

I stumbled upon Justin after searching for a vocal coach in NYC for several months with no luck. I went to Justin as a professional actor with little to no vocal training. I was nervous for my first lesson because I had been trying to find a good coach for quite some time to no avail.
From the very first moment I met him, he put me completely at ease, my nerves slowly vanished, and before I knew it, I was learning at the speed of light and having the most fun I've ever had while singing. It was like stumbling upon a pool of sunshine--absolutely amazing.
He is simply a godsend--we are so lucky that a teacher/coach like Justin exists. He's professional, incredibly knowledgeable, caring, patient, kind, and personable to name just a few of his wonderful traits.
I could not have fathomed how far I would come in so short a time, and for such an affordable price. An hour lesson with Justin is worth every single penny and then some.
If you've never had a voice lesson in your entire life or if you're an established performer, you are in the best and most capable hands possible if you go to Justin. Trust me, it's one of the best decisions you can make for yourself and your voice.

I've studied with Justin for about 5 months now and my knowledge, interest, and vocal skill have seriously skyrocketed. Justin has an incredible ear and can hear what you are doing right or wrong before you can, and can always come up with the right exercise to help you correct or achieve what you need.
But the reason Justin is such a wonderful teacher extends far beyond great exercises.
Justin literally makes you feel like you are his only student. I know his schedule is insane from seeing his calendar but you would never know it when you're studying with him. You have his full and complete attention at all times. His enthusiasm for your voice and songs is so inspiring and uplifting and his presence puts you completely at ease. You will leave his class feeling like a better singer and a happier person every single time.
I could not recommend him more highly.

Justin speaks talent, creativity, and passion. I always tell Justin: all the money I spent on a psychiatrist, I wish I would have instead used it on him. You leave each lesson with a positiveness singing through my body and love beating in my heart.

I have been with Justin for a year now (Happy Anniversary to me) and it has been an amazing journey. He pushes you to challenge yourself because he cares. He always clearly explains on how to get to the next level. He works with you because you are a team. The end result is priceless.

Justin was recommended to me by a friend when I was looking to get back into singing. I was very pleased with this recommendation. He has helped me explore my range and reclaim some notes I was concerned I might have lost. Justin makes fun, useful analogies to explain the technical aspects of his lessons. I believe he is able to adapt his teaching style to the needs and personalities of his students. Justin does a good job pairing a variety of music with vocal types. Highly recommended.

Justin Stoney is a one stop shop to vocal brilliance. He is equally adept in all areas needed to guide your voice into the professional performance world. I was first introduced to him as an accompanist (for a vocal workshop) in which I found his musicality most fabulous; and then found out he was also a vocal instructor and coach. I've been working with Justin for about five months, during which time my voice has made huge leaps and bounds. I came to Justin as a professional dancer, with only about two years of vocal training and the desire to move into the world of musical theatre. He is working with me to shape my voice into a place where I can not only be seen as a "dancer who can sing" but eventually as a singer! As far as technique, the man is a genius and explains everything in a way that is comprehendible and easy to process. He helps you to not only feel what is going on with your voice, but also to understand how and why. As a coach, Justin has witty and unique ideas to help you work through your songs. He has first hand experience as a seasoned performer and it shows in his coaching abilities. Within a few weeks of seeing Justin, he discovered some issues brewing with my vocal cords (based on past incorrect use) and quickly sent me on a path that has not only led to healing, but also major improvements in technique and vocal strength. Every time I see Justin I have some sort of breakthrough with my voice and he is the reason. Not only am I improving at a constant rate, but I have so much more confidence in my vocal abilities. In addition to all of Justin's brilliance as a teacher/coach, he is a fabulous person who genuinely cares about his students and their progress. Not that you even need to ask for more, but he is also one of the most affordable instructors in NYC. I HIGHLY recommend Justin to anyone, of any level, looking for superior training!!

The search for me as a singer was long and treacherous, THEN THERE WAS JUSTIN!!! I have been singing and performing for years, but could never find the right vocal coach, and teacher that could help me hone in on my talents. From the first lesson with Justin, he read my voice like a book. He knew exactly what I needed and has been helping me reach my true potential. Justin has mastered working with my individual voice, rather than teaching "his technique." That is soooo rare to find in vocal coaching these days.

Besides being a great teacher, Justin is just a model human being. ALWAYS positive and never judgmental. It can be very frustrating as a student to learn and understand the ways of the voice, but with Justin there is no pressure, just comfort and ease. I recommend him to ANYONE who either wants to learn the ways of their voice, or anyone who just needs someone to accompany them and get them ready for an audition. I could go on forever saying all the reasons I love Justin and his work, but you would probably stop reading! Don't think about it, ACT ON IT!!! Justin is the way to go!!

Justin has mastered working with my individual voice, rather than teaching "his technique." That is soooo rare to find in vocal coaching these days.

Besides being a great teacher, Justin is just a model human being. ALWAYS positive and never judgmental. It can be very frustrating as a student to learn and understand the ways of the voice, but with Justin there is no pressure, just comfort and ease. I recommend him to ANYONE who either wants to learn the ways of their voice, or anyone who just needs someone to accompany them and get them ready for an audition. I could go on forever saying all the reasons I love Justin and his work, but you would probably stop reading! Don't think about it, ACT ON IT!!! Justin is the way to go!!

Pros: great teacher, great rates, great friend!

Cons: NONE

Justin is by far one of the most outstanding teachers I have had in the arts and overall. His enthusiasm for his work is obvious and his desire to see his students progress is profound. Coming from a medical background I have been playing guitar for my own entertainment for years and wanted to finally be able to sing and play for a group of people. He has not only boosted my confidence but has quickly helped me progress to a place where I am no longer bashful to go up and sing at karaoke or pick up a guitar and play a few songs in front of people! One of the most impressive aspects of his teaching are his in depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology related to singing which clicked right away with me. The progress I have made with my voice is well above and beyond anything I could have expected when I started 5 months ago. I expected to get voice lessons and ended up with an instructor who is a true master at his craft and gracious enough to want to pass his talents on to others.

Pros: customized lessons to fit your needs, encouraging

Cons: none that I can think of

Having studied with numerous voice teachers and instructors throughout high school and at musical theater pre-college programs, along with being a drama major at NYU/Tisch, I can say with complete certainty and confidence that Justin is one of the most knowledgeable, skilled, and friendly voice teachers out there. His solid grasp of vocal technique along with repertoire, style, and performance technique makes him a great voice teacher and vocal coach. AND he plays the piano wonderfully.

As a voice student who wants to pursue musical theater yet expand his marketability, I have found that Justin is capable of teaching all kinds of styles of music, including contemporary musical theater, legit musical theater, pop, rock, etc. He doesn't just say that you can sing any style with good technique, he teaches you specific things so that you can tailor your technique towards that style. Justin's knowledge of acting technique is also beneficial with people who also want to be able to act their songs. He works with you instead of directing you, and as a result, your performance of songs becomes organic, truthful, and more enjoyable for yourself and the people watching you.

Also, he is not the kind of teacher that imposes a certain technique or philosophy on you. I feel that he tailors his teaching style and curriculum to the needs of each individual student. You never do the same exact set of exercises at every single lesson! That is why I feel his lessons are so valuable. I learn so much from every single lesson. There is always something new to learn and explore. And when you don't get something, he comes up with a new and different way to help you get it.

But most importantly, Justin is one of the most patient, nice, and caring teachers I know. I feel in my lessons that he is encouraging and supportive while always giving the honest truth and reality. I can always trust his opinion and critique while knowing that I won't feel lousy after a voice lesson. I also feel that he genuinely cares about each one of his students and his or her career goals. I never feel like he is rushing to get me out at the end of the hour. He is always willing to do whatever he can to help you accomplish your goals for that lesson

My daughter has been going to vocal lessons w justin for over three months and the results are amazing. She was good before, but Justin is really helping her hone her craft! We couldnt be more thrilled! Thank you so much!

I met Justin through a referral of a huge Broadway star two years ago. I had an audition that week. Justin was able to put me on his schedule. Justin prepared me, gave me the confidence, and taught me how to project my voice to get the part! I now work with Justin weekly to enhance my singing and vocals as my career progresses. Thank you Justin!

I saw Justin after a friend of mine recommend him to me and in a short period of time my singing has improved 100% on what it previously was. It was the little things that Justin was able to improve such as my breathing and the way I was projecting my voice. I??m continuing to see Justin and I??m really hoping that with these improvements my big break is just around the corner!! I would recommend Justin to anyone who is looking to improve their signing!
