The Estill Voice Model: Theory & Translation
The first official resource on Estill Voice Training available to the general public, this book explores the scientific foundation of the Estill Voice Model with basic anatomy & physiology for each Figure, translation of the Estill terminology for the artist and clinician, and significance for vocal living and performance. With sources from world-renowned voice researchers and Jo Estill herself, this book is an essential part of any voice library.
"As a teacher of singing, I have dreamed about a common language for singers, a technical perspective that acknowledges the athletic nature of what we do and the effort that is clearly a part of the package, and a collaborative environment that builds up both teachers and students. I feel that, in order to build a solid program foundation, both teachers and students alike must feel secure in admitting any lack of clarity so that they can open up to continual learning. Treating voice training as an ongoing science, in which we are all helping to flesh out details makes everyone partners in the process, and doesn't invalidate and alienate as some approaches do. In fact, this approach truly invites a team approach to learning."
