This online course delivers the essential Estill Voice Model: Level 1 (Figures for Voice) and Level 2 (Figure Combinations for 6 Voice Qualities) over 5 consecutive days.
In Level 1, participants learn differentiated muscular control over the 13 parts of the vocal mechanism (Figures) & in Level 2 these Figures are reassembled in different combinations to produce 6 arbitrary voice qualities: Speech, Falsetto, Twang, Sob, Opera & Belting. The course also offers effective solutions for challenging vocal tasks and mechanical strategies for voice control problems, tips for practice & application, warm ups & cool downs.
The course is delivered through lecture, audio & video examples, video endoscopy research, individual teaching and group practice. The group setting allows students to work on their own voice and observe changes in others. There will be opportunity for participants to sing or use spoken voice to apply these concepts and figures in practice and receive expert coaching in an open ‘masterclass’ at the end of the course.
Estill Voice Training has also benefited many speech therapists in providing more insight into the voice works, with directly applicable techniques and exercises that have a great impact on their clients’ vocal improvement!
