The NYVC Introductory Voice Teacher Training Mini-Course is ideal for international or out-of-state students traveling to New York for a short time.

In the LECTURE participants receive extremely comprehensive lectures on all aspects of the voice, vocal technique, and vocal pedagogy. This includes Breathing, Anatomy, Laryngeal Studies, Vocal Registration, Vocal Science, Acoustics, Resonance, Posture and Alignment, Diagnostics, “Vocal Exercise Design”©, Vocal Styles, Phonetics, Singer Psychology, and much more. In this section of the course, trainees will gain a complete understanding of the human voice and it’s application to vocal students. “No stone is left unturned” as the course covers virtually every practical aspect of singing, vocal pedagogy, and Voice Teaching. Trainees will have the opportunity to address any and all questions or confusions with regard to vocal pedagogy and will emerge with a masterful pedagogical understanding and supreme teaching confidence.


In the OBSERVATION section, participants observe vocal technique concepts applied to live singers at New York Vocal Coaching taught by Mr. Stoney. The majority of these observations sessions are performed in an interactive Master Class setting. The observations allow participants to witness how vocal pedagogical concepts can be applied skillfully and practically to help singers make fast and tangible improvements to a wide variety of vocal issues. New York Vocal Coaching’s students represent a extremely vast array of styles, levels, backgrounds, nationalities, and interests - allowing for a rich educational experience in diagnostic and practical vocal pedagogy.

Personal Study

In the PERSONAL STUDY section, participants receive one-on-one training with Mr. Stoney at New York Vocal Coaching in Midtown Manhattan. This gives participants a vocal “blueprint” as to how the concepts covered in the Voice Teacher Training apply to their own singing. Having a nuanced understanding of one’s own vocal technique is vital for helping others. Personal Study allows participants to gain a richer understanding of their own individual vocal technique as well as how to communicate their experience to their students.


The TEACHING section is a practicum that gives participants hands-on teaching experience under the care and guidance of Mr. Stoney. Trainees teach selected individuals from New York Vocal Coaching’s wide array of vocal students. The Teaching section is not an final exam or test, but rather a Master Class setting guided by Mr. Stoney. As the Voice Teacher trainee teaches, live feedback and guidance is offered with respect to developing a diagnostic ear and understanding how to instinctually and practically apply concepts of vocal pedagogy to singers in the vocal studio.
