Estill Voice Training is a state-of-the-art, comprehensive approach to voice training for singers, speakers, actors, voice teachers, voice clinicians--ANYONE interested in voice! Based on the the most current voice research, EVT is a simple and direct approach that not only allows one to identify and control (with learning and practice) the various parts of the voice that create ANY sound in any style (Classical, Pop, Opera, Folk, etc.), but also debunks the many myths that have surrounded voice training for the past 400 years!
Benefits of EVT:

- -Allows for vocal versitility
- -Brings consistency to your vocal performance

Estill Voice Training is broken down into two components:
Level 1: Figures for Voice
Breaks the voice down into it's components or Figures and allows each student to feel, hear and see how each movement directly effects voice quality. Some of the Figures explored are: True Vocal Folds, False Vocal Folds, Velum, Tongue, Thyroid Cartilage, Aryepiglottic Sphincter and Head, Neck and Torso Anchoring.
Level 2: Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities
Puts everything back together again by showing how we can combine the Figure options to create "recipes" for Six Basic Voice Qualities: Speech, Falsetto, Twang, Sob, Opera and Belt and BEYOND!
