About the Live Coaching July-August

“Kate Conklin’s understanding of the complexity of Bulgarian folk music/singing is very sophisticated. Her coaching method is integrative and multi-dimensional as she is considerate of both the internal body apparatus as well as any external components that make a sound. She is a powerhouse of a singer and a coach!

If you want to learn how to sing this beautiful music, Kate is the best expert in the industry!”

Boriana Grigorova Kleiler

What Kate presents here is a masterfully conceived programme of Bulgarian singing which is both profoundly rich in content and beautifully coherent. And the repertoire is dazzling.

This is my first experience of a singing course presented digitally and I cannot express how much it exceeds expectations. Kate’s presentation is exceptional and her instruction is systematic and practical. Within the first session I was discovering entirely new ways of feeling vocal resonance and Kate’s absorbing warmth and kindness of approach had me unlocking a kind of ease that I had not yet experienced whilst singing this music. 

The warm ups are immensely valuable and alongside Kate’s unique instruction on ‘design information’ I am discovering vocal abilities that I had not yet witnessed. I am practising with great enthusiasm every day and seeing enormous results already. It is very exciting to consider the wealth of knowledge that remains still to unlock.
I couldn’t recommend this course any more highly.
