Tools for choirs

Estill Voice Training (EVT) is a very efficient method for quickly improving a choir's sound and dynamic control and for teaching all choir members to sing without straining the voice.

Stefan offers a playful whole or half day workshop that introduces EVT to the choir and gives members the tools to begin applying EVT immediately to its repertoire.

Stefan creates bespoke training according to a choir's needs and topics include:

  • Breathing and posture - to reduce tension

  • False vocal folds - clear tone, no strain

  • True vocal fold control - clear tone, dynamic control

  • Larynx - what kind of sound do you want to produce?

  • Support - what does it actually mean?

         My men's choir, The Papas, and I went to Brighton on a choir trip. We were a little nervous as we didn't know what to expect. Stefan's overwhelming warmth and knowledge, however, immediately put us at ease. He uses easily accessible language which means that everyone regardless of experience can get the most out of the workshop.

I myself am a trained singing teacher, but I too left this workshop with MANY new ideas and exercises, as well as a renewed desire to sing myself and to work with my choirs.

 

Back home again, I have used what Stefan taught us at every choir rehearsal.

 

I would warmly recommend a workshop with Stefan!
