Please see the following message from Dr. Brian Winnie about the opportunity for Estill Voice Training Courses at Southwestern College.
Have a great day!
Southwestern College is proud to offer Estill Voice Training Courses; Level 1: Figures for Voice Control and Level 2: Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities held in Winfield, KS this coming March 19 – 23, 2017. We are honored and privileged to have Dr. Kim Steinhauer, President of Estill Voice International, coming to teach the courses during these five days. She is a world-renown voice pedagogue, researcher, scholar, and teacher and a highly sought after clinician and presenter on the Estill model. Dr. Steinhauer was one of Jo Estill’s close colleagues during her breakthrough research.
The Estill Voice Model is comprised of three operating principles:
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.
Artistry requires knowledge and demonstration of the stylistic elements of a performance practice. Artistry gives you the know-how to make your performance vision a reality. Commonly this principle applies to dramatic and musical endeavors, but there is also “artistry” in effective communication in a lecture, sales presentation, or customer service call.
Magic encompasses the indescribable experience of becoming one with your audience. Magical performances are breath-taking, goose-bump-raising, transformational experiences for both vocalist and audience. But these magic moments can be rare, unpredictable, and fleeting. Having a strong foundation of Craft and Artistry improves your chances of experiencing performance magic, finding that “zone” more frequently.
