Estill Voice Training

Level 1 Figures for Voice Control & Level 2 Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities
Level 1 and 2 Course
Course ID: 73

2019/01/07 to 2019/01/11 (YYYY/MM/DD) Time: 9am to 6pm Cost: £600 including workbooks (Returners £500) Language: English Instructor: Gillian McLaren Scott

This course is for anyone who would like to improve their singing or speaking voice—singers, actors, vocal coaches, drama instructors, speech-language pathologists, and other vocal health professionals.

Level One: Figures for Voice™ teaches the Craft of speaking and singing. During this course students are introduced to 13 vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each structure produces a range of different vocal sound effects. The Figures for Voice are exercises used to develop predictable control of each structure’s options. The skills developed in Level One will help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice!

Level Two builds on the knowledge and skills from Level One by asking students to combine different options learned through the Figures in "recipes" for six basic voice qualities. These qualities – Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, and Belting – appear as specifically defined by the Estill Voice Model. Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities™ gives you a better understanding of the human voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy.

Throughout the day, new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. Participants will be given the chance to explore Figure applications for individual repertoire and case studies in open coaching sessions. There will also be ample time for questions and discussion.

This course will be presented by Gillian McLaren Scott, Estill Master Trainer and Scotland's only Estill Mentor & Course Instructor.
(Please note: Completion of Level 1 is a pre-requisite for attending Level 2)

Teaching and Delivering Improvisation Techniques Workshop with Helen Halliday

Saturday 12th January, 10am-4pm

This improvisation workshop will focus on the teaching and delivering of techniques to stimulate creativity and inspire exploration of the process. Being a teacher in creative arts can exhaust your own creativity and this workshop is designed to give you fresh and exciting ideas at the point of delivery.
All creative art starts with an idea. We all have ideas ergo we all are creative beings. Some of us are lucky in that we have the time, space and capacity to expand an idea into a whole thing, whether that’s a picture, an object, a piece of music, a dance or a story. For some, the process is more challenging. With the increased demands of the new specifications it is even more important that students have the tools to devise/improvise quickly and effectively.
To play make believe, or role play as the dramaturgs call it, is to explore and experience. It gives students confidence and tools for communication and installs in them a sense of familiarity, preparing them to be an adult in a complicated world. It enables them to become proud creators of work, a feeling that will linger with them as they grow and mature, bolstering their future confidence in the world of employment. Improvising and devising has a far reaching effect on a student’s development.
Teaching young people to improvise is a challenge. It takes planning, creativity and in depth knowledge of the process. You must be a facilitator. A guide. You must try to remember how it feels to have your mind go blank or be out of control, to not have words to explain your feelings or to be able to express your wishes clearly. Because teaching improvisation is about understanding vulnerability and allowing that nakedness, that openness or emptiness to be the start of something.

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

Saturday 26th January 7pm

Literary great Michael Frayn will be in the hot seat in Winchester in January 2019, answering questions from John Miller on the playwright and author's remarkable career.

Best known as the author of the farce Noises Off and the dramas Copenhagen and Democracy. His novels, such as Towards the end of the Morning, Headlong and Spies have also been critical and commercial successes and his plays have won six Evening Standard and three Olivier Awards and Copenhagen also won the Prix Moliere in Paris and a Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway.

Michael Frayn is unusual in being equally successful as novelist and playwright, a distinction he shares with Anton Chekhov, which may explain his third writing gift of translating the latter’s plays from the Russian. His novel Skios was nominated on the long list for the Booker Prize, and his previous book Stage Directions is a collection of his essays about his theatre work over half a lifetime, including the introduction to his last play Afterlife at the National Theatre. It is also a reflection on his path into theatre: his early, ill-fated attempts at Cambridge Footlights, his subsequent scorn in his newspaper columns and, surprisingly late in life, his reluctant conversion to the stage.

“Since I have spent my life writing novels as well as plays, one of the questions which people always ask is how I decide whether a new idea is one for a play or for a novel. The answer is that I don’t. The matter decides itself. The idea that takes shape inside one’s head has its form written upon it; that’s what makes it an idea and not just a piece of wishful thinking,” says Michael.

“Michael talks as brilliantly as he writes”, says John “and I look forward to a fascinating discussion of his craft as playwright and novelist.”

The evening follows previous highly successful In Conversation evenings with Dame Judi Dench and Claire Tomalin as fundraisers for the family support charity Home-Start Winchester. “John Miller has an amazing address book,” says Home-Start Winchester Chairman Liz Cooper “and we are so grateful for his supporting us in this way.”

The event at Winchester Guildhall at 7pm on Saturday 26th January, will be followed by a book signing by Winchester booksellers P & G Wells and tickets at £12 are available by calling 01962 851177 or email info@home-startwinchester.org.uk or online at michaelfraynwinchester.eventbrite.co.uk (plus a booking fee).
