Kate Conklin's approach to voice is an integration of vocal technique, functional anatomy and physiology, neuroscience and Alexander Technique. Through thousands of hours of observation, voice work, performance and research in the other relevant fields of stress, anatomy, physiology and neurobiology, Kate has developed a unique approach to voice which is comprehensive, profound and utterly empowering.
Kate works with singers to effortlessly maximize resonance, release tension and become their own reliable system of bio-feedback. They become free to more deeply experience and communicate text, emotion and virtuosity in their performing, and keen awareness of how and why their singing is effective. Staging demands, character development and physicality all become effortless and intuitive, resulting in more conscious and powerful artistic choices. Singers develop self-reliance, confidence, increased breath capacity, greater agility, and a much more exciting vocal quality and stage presence.

Kate has worked in this capacity with performers and recording artists in Appalachian and bluegrass, Balkan, Classical Indian and Bollywood styles.
