Have you noticed that singing sounds a lot like crying? That there is some cry in all songs whether they are happy or sad? 

What you are hearing is the consequence of thyroid tilt, one important difference between singing and speaking. Thyroid cartilage control can help you reach your whole range without strain no matter the genre. Estill Voice Training offers a unique way to train this structure in isolation. 

Thyroid cartilage control will help you:

  • extend your range
  • improve intonation
  • sing with more feeling
  • deal with the passaggio
  • improve dynamic control
  • control and vary your vibrato 

This playful session includes in-depth information, practical group exercises, some individual coaching and advice on application in artistry and teaching. It 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, public speakers, radio hosts), 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 how to train vocal structures in isolation
  • experienced vertical versus tilted thyroid cartilage
  • applied these conditions to singing and speaking
  • explored how thyroid tilt affects dynamic control, vibrato control and range
