This series will give you firsthand experience with the process Kate uses to coach the best performers in the world.
All levels of vocal experience are welcome and you are invited to participate however you wish.
Kate will be working with you to help you reveal optimal acoustical qualities through coordinated movement. Using the framework of extraordinary performance practice and the Alexander Technique, we will do experiments as a group, and then Kate will work with a few individuals on their specific requests. The flow of each session will be a short, participatory introduction, followed by group work, then individual coaching, and questions at the end.
