This course is for anyone who would like to improve their singing or speaking voice—singers, actors, vocal coaches, drama instructors, Speech-Language Pathologists and other vocal health professionals. Level 1: Figures for Voice™ teaches the tools of the craft to add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice! Participants will use EVT’s innovative Figures for Voice™ to learn control of the vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each Figure employs exercises that will give you new vocal options for all styles speaking and singing. Level 2 combines the Figures from Level 1 to produce six voice qualities: Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, and Belting. Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities™ offers a clear understanding of the voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy. Throughout the day, the new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. There will also be ample time for questions, discussion, and work on individual repertoire or case studies.
Estill Voice Training™ is a comprehensive model to train and understand all the mechanisms of your voice. This course offers precise and detailed information on the anatomy and vocal physiology. You will learn all about the anatomic structures used to produce and alter sounds, as well as their functions and potential interactions with each other
How does it work?
The complete program is comprised of two levels.
Level One (three days) focuses on the parts of the anatomy on which you can consciously gain control to alter your vocal sound (Larynx height, True Vocal Folds Body-Cover, False Vocal Folds, etc.). You will learn how to train your voice using the 13 basic Figures created by Jo Estill through her research.
Level Two (two days) will combine the basic Figures learned in Level One to produce six voice Qualities (Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, Belting). These Qualities will help you better understand and experiment with the unlimited vocal capabilities available within yourself, while abiding by the best practices for a healthy and resonant voice.
The educational approach is highly diversified and free from any aesthetic biases. Scientific voice concepts will be taught (anatomy, physiology, acoustic) using documents, videos, sound clips as well as the VoicePrint Plus software (a spectrogram to actually see your sound graphically) throughout the course to enhance the learning experience.
Each new concept will be put into practice: first with the entire group and then during supervised workshops held several times a day to test out the new acquired knowledge in smaller groups for a more personalized experience.
Time will be put aside at the end of the day for individual coaching (Master Class). This is an opportunity for participants to present a part of a piece, a lecture or a theatrical excerpt on which they would like to work on.
You will need to buy the Estill Workbooks (one for each level) before the course when you complete your registration on the Estill Voice International website. An articulated paper larynx is included with the purchase of the 1st level notebook. Workbooks are only available in hard copy (which will be given to you on day 1 of the course) for in presence courses. The printable and annotable PDF version of the Workbooks will be used for Online courses (which you will receive immediately once you have registered with EVI).
At the end of the course, the instructor will validate that you have been present during each small practice groups and that you have successfully completed the course. You will receive a link to download your Participant Certificate, the only valid certificate for Estill certification.
