ONLINE PREPARATION 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: ONLINE
CLOSED NUMBER. VERY LIMITED PLACES.
WHAT THE COURSE INCLUDES: 40 hours of online lessons in small groups; video recording of lessons available for watching throughout the course. Assistance with booking procedures and exam procedures. Up to 3 checks a week via chat, email, 1 on 1 online meetings, or live recordings (short messages or meetings not exceeding 10 minutes).
CERTIFICATION: Subject to passing the exam.
LANGUAGE: English and Japanese
DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:
This course is designed for Japanese-speaking students and to allow them to take the exam in 2023 in Japanese. However, the course can be attended also by English speaking students, because all the lessons are taught in English and retranslated into Japanese by an interpreter present in the classroom.
During the 20 meetings that last 2-hours each, the EVT Figures for Control of Voice and the Estill Voice Qualities will be explored, focusing in particular on the tasks to be performed to pass the EFP certification exam.
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. 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.

WHAT IS THIS COURSE: A course aimed at preparing the EFP exam based on EVT training. The mastery of the voice and the muscular control regardless of the aesthetic needs are the basis of the preparation.
