Certified Master Teacher

Andy Follin is one of the most respected vocal coaches currently working in the UK.

Andy is a Certified Master Teacher (CMT) of Estill Voice Training™ (EVT).

(Click here to see Andy's profile on the EVT website)

Certified EVT representatives are an elite group of teachers and coaches - internationally recognized for their extensive knowledge of the voice, and for the innovative teaching techniques they employ.

To protect the integrity of EVT, Estill International's Advisory Board applies consistent and rigorous examination standards worldwide. CMTs are only certified after demonstrating mastery of the Estill Voice Model™ (including the Level 1 Figures for Voice and the Level 2 Six Voice Qualities) - and then displaying the ability to teach Estill Voice Training™ to individuals and/or small groups.

The only CMT in the North of England

Only certified teachers are permitted to teach EVT in a private studio setting. It is a qualification held by less than 100 people worldwide, and less than 20 in the UK. Andy is the only CMT currently working in the North of England.

Because the Estill Voice Model™ was developed through extensive research and based upon scientific principles, it continues to be refined as research becomes available. As such, Andy keeps himself at the forefront of modern vocal pedagogy - if you've heard of a singing system or method and are unsure how it works, Andy can explain it to you!


From soap opera to Grand opera!


Andy's client base includes recording artists, West End performers, Opera singers, college students - even the odd soap star!

TV credits include featuring on the Channel 4 documentary 'Picking up the pieces', working with blind singer Sarah Caltieri.

Andy works closely with Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs), working with referrals to help rehabiliate voices in difficulty. This process is a two-way street, and if you feel that you would like a medical opinion of any voice disorder, Andy is only too happy to refer you to one of his SLT / ENT partners.

Andy studied Estill Voice Training™ under Matthew Reeve and Klaus Møller on the Reeve & Møller Certification Pathway™ and now works as an Associate of Reeve & Møller.
