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.

This course will run over two weekends in January including the Martin Luther King Holiday Monday. (January 15th,16th, 17th, 23rd and 24th) It will take place from 9 am to 5 pm daily PST (Pacific Coast) and will be entirely online through zoom. Presenting this workshop is Kelly Burge EMCI and will be hosted by Ron Long EMT. Both are very experienced certified Estill Trainers with a wide variety of backgrounds in Musical Theatre, Pop Styles, Classical, Choral and Voice Over. Together they will help you understand the very broad application of the Estill Training Figures.

These workshops are attended by:

  • Beginning singers who find they can sing higher, easier, stronger
  • Experience singers who find answers to question or difficulties they have always had
  • Singers who are seeking to be more versatile in their musical styles
  • Voice Teachers who find new tools for faster progress of their students
  • Choral Directors who find effective answers for tuning, diction, blend, dynamics
  • Actors and stage directors who find gateways to character development through voice
  • Voice over artists who can increase their color and character voices
  • Speech and Language pathologists gain CEU’s as well as many new therapeutic tools

 

This will be an online course. You will have the live teaching sessions, time to work on each figure or exercise in breakout groups, and the ability to interact directly with the course teachers and ask questions. There will also be Open Sessions, conducted in a master class manner, during which you can bring a problematic song or monologue excerpt in order to be individually coached to find the appropriate Estill Figure to solve your difficulty. All you need is an iPad, laptop or computer with a microphone and camera to attend.
