Are you curious to see what belting is all about? Have you tried it but found that your voice scratched? Were you always told you had a very quiet voice? 

Belting is part of musical theatre, gospel and pop. In Estill Voice Training (EVT), belting is one of six voice qualities. It is a fun, safe and economical way to make a very loud and exciting sound for those heightened emotional moments in a song. This session teaches you the Estill set-up for belting from scratch with a short application to singing and speaking. 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have:

  • had an anatomical overview of the larynx
  • practiced cricoid cartilage control
  • reviewed the Estill figures for false vocal fold control (retraction) and anchoring
  • practiced the Estill figure for belt quality
  • applied belt quality to speaking and singing
