Practical skills to help you access your full range
Are you limiting your vocal choices because you “haven’t got the range” or you’re unsure how to beat the break in your voice?
What would it mean to you to be able to easily bridge and access your full range, including both high and low notes?
In this practical workshop, we will explore range in the context of Estill Voice Training - a scientific, evidence-based system for vocal development - and apply the Estill figures for True Vocal Folds, Head and Neck Anchoring, Thyroid Cartilage and Larynx Control together with the Siren.
This innovative approach will help you take a fresh look at concepts like chest voice, head voice and “mix” by encouraging you to find the best possible larynx position for every pitch in your range.
Starting to build a reliable, efficient and sustainable pitch mechanism will enable accurate intonation and easy-access to your full range, freeing you up to focus on the emotional quality of your performance. It will also have positive implications for vocal health.
The session is a safe space for exploration with some opportunities for individual coaching throughout the session (but there's no pressure to participate!).
