More About our Estill Level 1&2:

During the week, we spend time playing with sound and exploring all the colour options and problem/solution work within the group. Singing in the open coaching sessions is optional but recommended. Levels 1&2 are a prerequisite for many of the advanced workshops and future qualifications. This course is not a qualification of EVT, but a prerequisite to beginning your certification journey. 

About The Voice Gym:

The Voice Gym is a voice studio that specialises in The Estill Model and craft application. Stephane and Gerald Marko are the directors and they are both EMCIs with Testing Privileges and Service Distinctions. The Voice Gym's mission is to give the power back to the singer/speaker to control their mechanism and apply it to any artistry of their choosing. Both Gerald and Stephanie are puzzlers. Craft offers a creative and inspiring opportunity for them to find and solve the issues and release the artistry choices and performance. They enjoy working with open and courageous teachers who continue to be learners. They also work in conjunction with Speech and Language Pathologists and Otolaryngologists to assist/coach injured voices to recover and return with healthier habits (and get that spark of joy back).
