hello, skill! meet artistry...
Tyler Jones Voice Studio offers functional singing voice training to singers of all ages and musical genres, equipping them with dynamic, reliable singing technique that will last a lifetime.
Lessons are tailored to the individual goals of each client: Whether you're a Broadway veteran, singer-songwriter, TV star, or pre-professional, TJVS' awareness based voice and body work helps facilitate mastery of your voice, regardless of musical style. Focus is placed on helping singers unlock their own unique, authentic voice in the most efficient and industry-appropriate ways possible.
Tyler offers strategies for success that can be put to use immediately; after your first lesson, you will leave with a personalized gameplan to optimize advancement between sessions. The voice is intrinsic to the soul and sensibilities of each singer. No two students are taught the same way --- because no two students learn or sing the same way! Your voice is not one-size-fits-all, so take heed of any influencer, method, app or online singing program that tries to convince you otherwise! You only get one voice, and it requires personalized training and from a trusted instructor who is able to provide accurate diagnoses and prescriptions for its health and development.
In addition to voice habilitation, Tyler has a personal passion for working with singers with injured voices. As professionals, singers are asked to perform at seemingly superhuman levels. Broadway musicals continue to write roles even higher and more emotionally-driven than their predecessors, still relying on the performer to sing the eighth show of the week with the same power and energy as the first. Like any professional sports athlete, the schedules and demands placed upon “vocal athletes" inherently increase their likelihood of strain and injury. Training at TJVS prioritizes the vocal health of each client, supplying them with a technique that will allow them to meet the demands of their respective industry in the most medically optimal way. In the event of a voice injury, Tyler will work alongside your medical voice care team to offer therapeutic strategies aimed to "de-catastrophize" your injury and get you back to doing what you love... typically even better, and with more freedom, than before!
Tyler is fortunate to work alongside many leading figures in the worlds of voice pedagogy, research, therapy and medicine. His instruction draws upon strategies from a variety of voice and body systems, including Estill, SVS, "Bel Canto," LMRVT, Fitzmaurice, Alexander and Feldenkrais. Other pedagogical influences include Chapman, Lessac, Miller, and the work of his own mentors, Mike Ruckles, for whom he is a proud associate teacher, and Aaron Hagan (voice technician for Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor).
Tyler is a member of the New York Singing Teachers Association, Actors Equity and SAG-AFTRA.
