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.

If you'd like to learn more about your voice and how to use it effectively, safely and improve power and stamina, this is the course for you! You don't have to be a singer - it is open to drama students, speech pathologists, teachers and anyone who uses their voice. No solo singing is required!

The Full Estill Course encompasses Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 teaches basic anatomy of the vocal instrument and how to monitor and control the different structures that create and change vocal quality. There is an emphasis on safe, healthy voicing and developing kinaesthetic awareness in order to reproduce the desired sound.

Level 2 covers combinations of the Figures from Level 1 to produce specific Voice Qualities which can then be modified for any desirable sound. This gives a way to monitor the sound for any genre - opera, music theatre, pop, jazz etc.

Participants will receive individual feedback and monitoring to ensure that all concepts are understood and applied correctly. 

There will be small group sessions to reinforce motor learning. 

A masterclass on the final day will give participants opportunity to apply the skills they have learned and receive feedback regarding application to repertoire and style.
