Estill Voice Training for Future and Current Choral Directors!
Bellevue College, Bellevue, WA
Northwest Associated Arts and Bellevue College are proud to offer Estill Voice Training Courses; Level 1: Figures for Voice Control and Level 2: Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities held in Bellevue, WA from May 18 – 22, 2018. The workshop will be led by Dr. Kim Steinhauer, President of Estill Voice International, a world-renown vocal pedagogue, researcher, scholar, teacher and a highly sought after clinician and presenter on the Estill model. Dr. Steinhauer was also one of Jo Estill’s close colleagues during her breakthrough research.
The Estill Voice Model’s primary focus is on the Craft of singing.
The Craft is learning how to control the various structural components of the voice. Each structure contributes to sound and feeling of the voice. Control of these structures leads to unlimited options for changing – or maintaining – voice quality, without vocal strain. Craft is the foundation.
