IN PERSON COURSE FOR THE EFP EXAMINATION
Do you want to enrich your resume as a performer or teacher with a new certification known all over the world?
Do you want to attend a course that focuses on voice control regardless of musical genre or singing or acting style?
Do you want to explore all the possibilities of your voice from a mechanical point of view and master very different sounds?
Then this course can do for you.
SUITABLE FOR: singers, actors, singing teachers, acting/spoken voice teachers, and speech therapists. Additionally, anyone who is NOT yet in possession of an Estill certification and wants to start the certification process either to stop at the EFP or to continue with the EMT can participate.
LEVEL: both beginner and advanced. Anyone NOT yet in possession of an Estill certification.
WHAT ESTILL IS NEEDED FOR:
All Estill exercises, including work on vocal qualities, can be applied both to the singing voice and to the spoken voice.
EVT can teach actors and singers to improve the effectiveness of vocal production, better manage the effort of performance, optimize muscle work and the role of breathing, extending the vocal range, vary the tones based on the character or style, lighten or darken the voice, clean it or “dirty” it, increase or eliminate the nasalization to “characterize” a character, increase the projection, audibility and volume of the voice, control all the structures that contribute to the production of vowels and consonants in order to work on a more conscious diction and easily master the accents of different languages, of different dialects (and sociolects), and much more.
COURSE DELIVERY: IN PERSON.
The course might be run occasionally online in case of sickness, typhoons, teacher temporarily abroad. Online attendance is always possible for every student in case of their sudden inconvenience. Some sessions might be lead by teachers other than Francesco Mecorio to allow the students to experience different teaching approaches.

The EFP exam is reserved only for those who have attended at least one official Estill Level 1 and 2 course. Each lesson of this course is in fact accompanied by a brief theoretical explanation of anatomy, physiology, introduction to the exercise, and application of the topics to the performance and to speech therapy. However, the work will focus on practical tools useful for passing the practical EFP certification exam, which can only take place after attending the level 1 and 2 (in-person) course.
