SEOUL (SOUTH KOREA); 2019, April 14.
BELTING is a specific type of very loud voice production used in musical theatre, pop, different kinds of folk music, and in some ways even in some operatic performance and in acting.
Thrilling and exciting, often improperly and summarily called “chest voice in the high range” or “mix”, its common definition, as well as its relationship with vocal health, can be controversial.
More and more performers every year are using belting in their performance, especially in Korea, where its definition was unknown until some years ago. More teachers have started to teach or mention it in their lessons. However, dealing with belting without an exact knowledge of its mechanics and an accurate, specific training can be very frustrating and detrimental. Additionally, any other loud sound – can harm the vocal health.
However, Estill Voice Training
offers a detailed physiological description of belting and a series of detailed exercises. There are “dos and don’ts” to establish a safe, effective, successful belting; this system of practice based on EVT has been safely training performers in Broadway and West End as well as pop singers for more than 20 years now.
In this workshop, we’ll try to clarify all the doubts about belting, explain its physiology, establish a basic practice, and learn easy but safe exercises to build a belting sound successfully and safely.
Those who are totally new to EVT can participate, and a short general introduction will be given at the beginning of the day. The attendance of at least one introductory workshop (or higher level), and/or some training with an Estill teacher is recommended, though not mandatory, for a better understanding.
The conclusion of the workshop will be a masterclass/open session where volunteers will have the chance to work on belting for acting and singing.
