Level One, Figures for Voice,™ teaches the Craft of speaking and singing. During this course, students are introduced to 13 vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each structure produces a range of different vocal sound effects. The Figures for Voice are exercises used to develop predictable control of each structure’s options. The skills developed in Level One will help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice!

Level Two builds on the knowledge and skills gained in Level One by asking students to combine different options learned through the Figures in "recipes" for six basic voice qualities. These qualities – Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, and Belting – appear as specifically defined by the Estill Voice Model. Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities™ gives you a better understanding of the human voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy.

Throughout the day, new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. There will also be ample time for questions and discussion.

Participants will be given the chance to explore Figure applications for individual repertoire and case studies in open coaching/master class sessions. Please note, there is not a requirement for everyone to perform during the open sessions, nor will there be enough space for everyone to do so, but the opportunity is included as an invaluable occasion to see the work applied practically in singing and speaking. 

The complete course fee of $540.00 ($275 for students) includes:

  • Instruction on all 5 days
  • Opportunity to participate in master classes

The course fee does not include the Level 1 and 2 Workbooks. Course materials must be purchased by the participant through Estill Voice International during the registration process.

Registration Deadline is May 15, 2019.
