AARON NEWLAND-BENTLEY has twisted my arm and ordered me to go and teach Estill Voice International Level One and Level Two courses in Bradford! So he has kindly organised the courses which are taking place at Dixons City Academy over the next two weekends where he teaches. For more information about the courses contact Aaron who will be happy to guide you in the right direction. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Places are limited.
LEVEL ONE: FIGURES FOR VOICE™
Level One is for anyone interested in learning about the voice. This intense course begins with an overview, where we introduce the philosophy and science behind Estill Voice Training and Figures for Voice™ exercises. Presentations are combined with frequent small group practice sessions, supervised by fully-trained interns, where all participants experience creating and applying Figures for Voice™. In addition we run master class sessions where you can apply the exercises to your own performance. We cover how the system relates to different voice fields, from opera to musical theatre, from theatre voice to public speaking, and enable truly versatile vocal performers. As well as teachers and students of performance, this course will be of interest to speech and language therapists with voice clients.
LEVEL TWO: FIGURE COMBINATIONS FOR SIX VOICE QUALITIES™
This is a practical course where you experience creating the six voice qualities associated with Estill Voice Training: speech, falsetto, sob, twang, opera and belt. Discussion focuses on how to mix these qualities safely and how to apply them artistically in different genres. Presentations will be combined with small group practice sessions and master classes. As well as teachers and students of performance, this course will also be of interest to speech and language therapists with voice clients. Level Two is only for those who have already completed Level One.
