How to Sing Folk is a fun, interactive folk singing workshop where you will learn how to make a folk sound from scratch using speech quality from Estill Voice Training as the starting point. We will then use Estill figures for voice to create different vocal colours as we explore folk songs from around the world, including from Sweden, Appalachia and the Czech Republic. 

Looking at different possibilities to adapt speech quality will give you inspiration and tools to develop your craft whether you are a seasoned folk singer or a beginner who is looking to explore this genre for the first time. 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have: 

  • Explored vocal habits (also known as attractor states)
  • Studied and practiced Estill speech quality
  • Explored different vocal colours in folk singing
  • Explored different styles of folk songs 

How to Sing Folk is delivered in English with optional Czech interpretation. 

Estill Voice Training offers singers and speakers solutions to realise their full vocal potential (e.g. singing without strain or press in the voice, overcoming breaks, controlling dynamics and vibrato, increasing range and more.) It’s a scientific approach with emphasis on training structures of the voice in isolation for maximum artistic freedom.
