Vivace Theatre School


These courses are for anyone who would like to improve their singing or speaking voice.

The Level 1 course is centred around the teaching of the CRAFT. You will use the Figures for Voice to learn control of the vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each Figure employs exercises that will give you new vocal options for all styles of speaking and singing and help you to develop skills to help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your vocal.

Level 2 combines the Figures from Level 1 to produce six voice qualities as defined by Jo Estill: Speech; Falsetto; Sob; Twang, Belt and Opera. The exploration and practice of these qualities will give you a better understanding  of the voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy.

Course days will include lectures, small group practice sessions and open coachings where you will be able to explore challenges in your repertoire through Estill based solutions. Whether you are a singer, voice teacher, or both, this course will expand your vocal ability as well as your understanding of the human voice in general. There will be a strong focus on the application of the model to your performance and teaching.

This course will be presented by Gillian McLaren Scott, Certified Master Teacher and Scotland’s only Certified Course Instructor.

(Please note: Completion of Level 1 is a pre-requisite for attending Level 2)
