Vocal Work

 

Katie Bull has been a vocal coach for over 25 years with Broadway, Film/TV and stage credits.

 
 

Katie Bull teaches Whole Body Voice© a method of voice exploration she evolved from her work with the late great vocal coach Chuck Jones and a myriad of other influences.  Whole Body Voice© is informed by jazz improvisation, post-modern dance improvisation, contact improvisation, Tibetan Buddhist meditation techniques, Fitzmaurice Voice Technique©. Katie is a Certified Fitzmaurice© Associate Teacher. She is a Feldenkrais© Certification NYC VII/VIII.

Katie was first introduced to a voice/Feldenkrias Technique© integration collaboration in 1978 at SUNY Purchase when she had the honor of training with voice coach Chuck Jones and Feldenkrais Master Teacher Bob Chopra; it was Chopra's collaboration with voice coach Chuck Jones that set Katie on the lifelong path of curiosity around the voice and Feldenkrais integration.


PROFESSIONAL STUDIOS

Katie has also taught in various professional studios in NYC including Michael Howard Studio, CayMichael Patten Studio, Larry Singer studio and The Gate studio. She presents the Vox Lab at Atlantic Theater Company Acting Studio, and also teaches in the ATC Evening Conservatory. 

I strongly feel that no matter how beautifully I paint her work with my description or testimonial, the truth of it is many times beyond what I can say, because I almost feel like Katie taught me what it means to communicate
