Do you have a break in your voice? 

Would you like to increase your range? 

Do you want more passion in your singing? 

One of the main differences between singing and speaking involves degrees of thyroid tilt, which can help you reach your whole range - whether you sing opera, musical theatre or pop - and is invaluable for dealing with breaks in your voice. It is also the only way to get an even, natural vibrato. 

This playful session includes in-depth information, practical group exercises, some individual coaching and advice on application in artistry and teaching. 

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about how the voice works, singers of all genres and all speakers (e.g. actors, teachers, vicars, etc.), voice teachers, choral directors and speech and language therapists. 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have:

  • had an anatomical overview of the larynx
  • explored the Estill concepts of Effort and Attractor states
  • experienced vertical versus tilted thyroid cartilage
  • begun conscious training in the Estill Figure for thyroid cartilage control
  • applied this skill to singing and speaking
  • understood the role of thyroid tilt in pitching and dynamic control
  • explored vibrato
