How to train an expressive speaking voice that reflects the personality of the individual presents a completely different set of issues to the training of the singing voice. There are no genres to fulfil, no sustaining of high notes or concerns about vibrato!

How does the teacher or coach identify what precisely is missing from the speaking voice and what strategies do they have to allow the individual’s voice to be truly heard?

The Estill Model provides unique tools to train and develop all voices, regardless of accent or culture. Everyone’s voice can be made more expressive, with more variety and clarity without changing accent.

However you use your voice, in whatever professional capacity, for example as a teacher, barrister, actor, presenter or fitness instructor, Estill Voice Training offers precise tools to improve stamina, aid projection, avoid vocal fatigue and create a more compelling speaking voice by starting with an understanding of how voice actually works.

The day will include:

  • Brief overview of the Estill Model
  • Top 5 Common voice problems – causes and Estill solutions
  • Projection – simple exercises to improve tone and volume
  • Clarity – Why Speech training should matter to everyone
  • Best warm ups and cool down – how to effectively prepare for and end performance
  • Short masterclass

Suitable for: Anyone interested in learning more about the speaking voice; those new to Estill as well those with experience; actors, singers, teachers, coaches, SLTs
