An opportunity to get inside the Estill Voice Training System to explore the structure of the model in terms of framework, content and initial introduction to isolated control.

Many teachers are curious about "Estill" but find a full commitment to the complete 5 Day Course a big step both in terms of time and money.

Look inside, ask questions and see for yourself the genius of Jo Estill.

Course Breakdown:

  • Introduction to the Estill Model (the Big Ideas)
  • Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology
  • Overview of Level One: Power, Source, Filter
  • Overview of Level Two: Vocal Qualities
  • Figure Focus
  • VoicePrint Software

Prerequisites: NONE

This is a lecture-based course for anyone interested in the voice. All backgrounds welcome including teachers, SLTs, singers, actors, MDs, directors, choir directors and voice over artists.


I'm not a professional singer, in fact I can't really sing - can I still join? Yes. You won't be required to do any individual singing. The figure focus will allow everyone to "have a go" but this isn't a chance to 'perform a song' but rather an opportunity to discover the inner workings of your individual instrument and voice for example where your True Vocal Folds are vs your False Vocal Folds and where your soft palate is and how to actually move it!

I've already done a Level 1 & 2 course, so is this really for me? If you're like me and like repetition then absolutely, yes. Sometimes encountering the same information at a different time is a lightbulb moment waiting to happen.
