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 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 1 will help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice! Throughout the day, new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. Participants will be given the chance to explore Figure applications for individual repertoire and case studies in open coaching sessions. There will also be ample time for questions and discussion.

Overview:  Level 1 (13 Figures) in the Estill Model presented by Anne-Marie Speed, one of Estill Voice International’s most experienced and qualified Estill experts. This Level 1 course will cover the 13 Figures and will also include a short introduction to anatomy & physiology. The daily schedule will consist of lecture presentations, video research, audio & video examples, as well as teaching and training tips. Participants will divide into small practice groups throughout the day to receive coaching in the Figures. There will also be an Open Session in the evening which provides participants with an opportunity to sing a song or do a speech and receive expert coaching from Anne-Marie. Please note, there is not a requirement for everyone to get up during the Open Session nor will there will be enough space for everyone to sing or perform in the Open Session but it is added as an invaluable opportunity to see the work applied.
