About the Workshop

Singers and teachers are one of the largest groups of professional voice users in the world. Singers and teachers’ voices need to be healthy, reliable, powerful and clear. This practical and interactive training will help you to:

  • Understand how your voice works
  • How to take care of it and improve your vocal health.
  • Develop strategies to train your voice to be more efficient and increase vocal stamina.
  • Learn how to project for noisy environments and to be heard at distances.
  • Understand and develop healthy vocal practice in your daily life.

Based on the Estill Voice Model, this training offers an effective and revolutionary muscular voice training program to develop and sustain healthy voicing in all situations. I hope you will have learned techniques to protect and preserve your voice and that you leave the sessions energised with a desire to sing in any style you choose with confidence.

Teachers who complete the modules/ professional development will understand that this learning will assist in addressing the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: 2.1,3.2.3.6 2.1 2.4 3.5 4.1 6.3 6.4 7.4.

Participants: This session is suitable for classroom teachers with no prior experience including, music educators, students and anyone who relies on their voice professionally. Participants will receive a certificate verifying completion and attendance of the training workshop. Completing the course teachers will contribute two hours of PD addressing the standards as listed from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher registration in Victoria.

Your ticket includes tea and coffee and light refreshments.

Professional learning is not an end in itself; it is, or at least it should be, a means to an end and that end is improved student learning outcomes. The prime object is to improve what teachers and school leaders do, not merely what they know” (Hargreaves, 2011).

"The 40th Port Fairy festival celebrates culture, the roots, the homelands from which music and stories rise from the deeper well. It is a prime time to shine our bright Southern Lights on an artist who grew from these homelands to travel the world. She has made wonderful music with the best from Goanna, to Mary Black, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, The Chieftains and back home to Archie Roach. We are more than thrilled to announce that our Artist of the Year for 2016 is the amazing Marcia Howard".
