Estill Voice Training
ESTILL VOICE TRAINING ™ is a research based method, developed and founded by Jo Estill (1921 – 2010), world-renowned educator, researcher, and singer. There is no cultural nor aesthetic bias in Estill Voice Training; and with a focus on vocal health, it’s useful for those who seek the full range of expression in the human voice, embracing all voice qualities and all styles of singing.
“How am I doing this?” was the question that motivated Jo Estill´s nearly 25 years in research in the vocal physiology, acoustics, and perception of voice quality.
Her research in 6 different voice qualities shows that each voice quality has its own characteristics. This knowledge was developed into the training system “Figures for Voice” – a series of exercises that train independent verification of the structures that influence our voice. Working with “Figures for Voice” & “Six Voice Qualities” provides awareness of your own voice and allows you to use your voice in a balanced and healthy way.
