Music theatre has a variety of different styles within the genre. 

Stephanie Marko understands and has had first hand experience with the changing music genres required to be employable in the Music Theatre industry. For example, whilst doing Phantom of the Opera in Germany, playing Carlotta (Operatic Dramatic Coloratura) she was summoned to the Cats Theatre to play Grizabella (Mezzo Belter) for one night due to illnesses at the theatre. Stephanie then moved on after this contract to an 80s music based show and she was singing Love is a Battlefield (Pat Benatar), Pink Cadillac and How Will I Know (Whitney) whilst dancing. This was the normal pattern of her career as it is for many.

In the Music Theatre Industry you need to say Yes to everything, so make sure you are prepared!! Be able to take direction! Create the sounds your director is asking for with vocal health in mind, then to repeat it 8 shows a week safely. 

The Estill Voice Model makes these transitions clear, aesthetic free and fun to learn. 

Come along for a day of working through Estill Voice Training recipes that allow you to change your vocal qualities to achieve different genre sounds within Music Theatre.

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. The Voice Gym 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.

They enjoy working with open and courageous teachers who continue to be learners.
