This course is for anyone who would like to improve their singing or speaking voice—singers, actors, vocal coaches, drama instructors, speech-language pathologists, and other vocal health professionals.
Level One: Figures for Voice™ teaches the Craft of speaking and singing. During this course students are introduced to 13 vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each structure produces a range of different vocal sound effects. The Figures for Voice are exercises used to develop predictable control of each structure’s options. The skills developed in Level One will help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice!
Level Two builds on the knowledge and skills from Level One by asking students to combine different options learned through the Figures in “recipes” for six basic voice qualities. These qualities – Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, and Belting – appear as specifically defined by the Estill Voice Model. Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities™ gives you a better understanding of the human voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy.
Throughout the day, new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. Participants will be given the chance to explore Figure applications for individual repertoire and case studies in open coaching sessions. There will also be ample time for questions and discussion.
