Do you have a break in your voice? Would you like to increase your range? Would you like a sweeter sound - or perhaps you would like to be less sweet? 

One of the main differences between singing and speaking involves degrees of thyroid tilt. It can really help you reach your whole range - whether you sing opera, musical theatre or pop - and is invaluable for dealing with those breaks in your voice. 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have: 

  • practiced the Estill Figure for Thyroid Cartilage Control
  • had an anatomical overview of the larynx
  • experienced vertical versus tilted thyroid cartilage 
  • applied this skill to singing and speaking
  • learned how to siren as part of your daily warm-up
