Intro Vocal Workshop with Katie Bull
Ongoing Class Vocal Workshop with Katie Bull
Technique & Scene Study I
Technique & Scene Study II
Exclusive Lab Intensive with Atlantic Theater Company’s Artistic Director Neil Pepe


This vocal workshop is about vocal power, audibility, and expression; moment to moment breath that manifests spontaneous vocal impulse and range; communication in present moment; vocal health; and vocal support for articulation that is rooted in the whole body. Students learn the 24 core exercises of a vocal production warm up sequence that is developmentally based, and organic. This sequence can evolve over time to be customized and adapted for each unique vocal body. The exercises, in turn, can be applied to text — and acting can become a fully physical art. Katie Bull is the founder of Whole Body Voice (c), a whole body approach to vocal production for the speaking voice. Katie trained with the renowned vocal coach Chuck Jones and collaborated with him until his passing.

Summer 2014 8-week Session

Tuition: $350


Requires previous training with Katie Bull or other Atlantic instructors and colleagues. Ongoing Class/Mixed Levels. Vocal Workshop students continue to explore and refine the Jones-rooted vocal warm up practice with greater detail. Specificity of awareness and self coaching approaches rooted in the use of gravity, help actors to find support muscles, and to trust the released voice. Students will be cast in and embark on an exploration of an original play with Katie facilitating scenes from a vocal production integration point of view. The class will culminate in a read through. This is a field rehearsal format. The present moment is explored as an aspect of vocal production breathing. Some introductory principals of a compatible vocal technique – the Fitzmaurice Technique (c) – are taught to expand the actor’s options for self coaching.

An introduction to the Atlantic Technique. Course includes Script Analysis and Repetition work explored through scene study and structured acting exercises.
