Have you completed the Estill Course and are wondering what's next?
Did you enjoy the sense of community that you found in the course?
Would you like an Estill workout session delivered to you through a private Facebook Group?
This daily vocal workout community uses the Estill language for a 15 minute warmup that explores your vocal anatomy and all the wonderful sounds it can make from twang to belt to opera. You can work on your Estill Figures and Qualities with fun musical warmups that challenge your voice. This is followed by a question/coaching period of 10 minutes where you can ask, "Am I doing this right?!?" Sessions run year round at 9:30 am Mountain Standard Time from Monday through Saturday. (8:30am Pacific, 11:30 am Eastern, and 4:30pm in the UK) Every Monday there is an Estill Figure review after the warmup for half an hour. There are no sessions on Sundays and Holidays. This program also includes admission to a private Facebook group where the Warm-Up will be posted live each day. You can join and cancel your subscription at anytime.
Please note that these sessions are open to all levels of singers from beginner to amateur and has many retired students and voice teachers participating.
Bonus includes access to my online library of videos and to my course called Pop Check, that analyzes all the unique and fun sounds of Contemporary Commercial Music.
I was a relatively new singer when I first took the Estill Course. I began attending Ron's daily warmups while I was taking the course, and I never left! Not only is Ron warm, funny, and very knowledgeable, he has a knack for building a supportive community which has helped me learn more and more. Ron uses the Estill principles in his warmups and gives each of us the chance to ask questions and practice the new techniques we are learning. I can hear my voice improving as I continue day by day. Thanks, Ron!

I can credit my nephew's love of theatre and singing as the catalyst to explore the world of Estill voice training and my introduction to Ron Long who was one of the voice coaches leading breakout sessions of the weeklong workshop. Ron is so welcoming, approachable and generous in sharing his knowledge and skills as a Estill vocal coach. There are Q & A sessions after his almost daily on-line warm up with his student community. Ron engages his students to listen and learn from each other as much as from him which is an unexpected added benefit! The coaching, encouragement and feedback often happens outside your scheduled voice lesson not only during the on-line warm up, but also during the monthly "Pop Check" or Question night and/or the themed Performance night. The on-line musical community that Ron has gathered is diverse: young students to the young at heart, from beginner to classically trained voices, students from across Canada, the USA, and some from across the pond (British) eager to explore new musical styles and keep learning.....in summary everyone and anyone who loves to sing and perform (even if it is just for yourself) and have some fun along the way. You will learn, laugh and develop your unique sound as a member of this friendly and inclusive community!

I had divulged in January to a friend about my desire to learn to sing and she shared with me this amazing teacher she was working with and of course in the time of Covid it was online. I got my courage up to make the initial connection with Ron and it has enriched my life in so many ways. Ron has created a “family” of people who have come together to explore their voices and bring joy to their daily lives. I always knew that singing would soothe my soul…now Ron is giving me the platform and comfort to do that. My lessons are full of personal directions that guide me to improve. The daily warm ups I look forward to from the minute my eyes open in the morning and learning from the community of people who are part of it has been an added bonus. And then there are all the educational videos and Tuesday evening sessions and specific courses that are offered that round it all out to the best experience I have had in years. And don’t get me going on the kind of human being Ron is….he is tuned in to each one of us as individuals, feeding us kindness and courage to have and use our voice in the best way possible and in turn building our confidence. I am so very grateful for being able to be a part of the SingingwithRon family.
