Remember how musical, valuable and distinct you are!
You will have a chance to work with three basic pillars of the brother’s twenty years of experience, coaching, and research.
everyone is musical
You are made up of the music that has moved you throughout your life. Through a series of games, inquiry and self-learning, the Brothers Koren have a simple and practical way of understanding you as a musical being.
You are a DISTINCT Whole Body Instrument
Through 20 years of voice and Behavior coaching, We have discovered that everyone, when back home in their body, has a radical and distinct voice that needs to be heard. We have developed specialized tools and techniques to access your Big and one of a kind voice.
Your story is valuable
Chances are, you have been walking around feeling like your life is not interesting enough or worthy of being told to other people, or not enough to justify writing a song. Who do you think you are? Your Inner Critic may say this and more to you, to silence you. The Brothers hold the space of curiosity for you to see how magnificent your path has actually been. In Speaking up and voicing your distinct narrative, BK sets out to ultimately free you from your stories and become simply an experience of Being. An experience only you can feel, until you fully express it.

What other people are saying…
Justin Michael Williams
“Quantum leap are the two words that best describe my life changing experience with [BK]. Within a number of months I transformed from being a guy who 'wanted to be a singer' into a full-fledged recording artist with a product that rivals a major label release.”
“I have always wanted to be a singer, and I had lost my ability to sing with all my heart. Isaac and Thorald were genius at helping me open up and fully express myself.”
Katherine Woodward Thomas
NY Times Bestselling Author of Calling in “The One” and Conscious Uncoupling
“Though singing and songwriting were my first love, I’d sadly left them behind when my life flowed in other creative directions. Yet Isaac and Thorald breathed melody and lyrics back into my heart and soul by taking me under their angel wings and mentoring me home again to my own artistry. The lyrics that have poured out of me under their encouraging and kind care are the best I’ve ever written, and the songs we’re creating together make me feel whole, happy and blessed beyond measure.”

You are welcome to work at this pace or slow down and savor the material on a timeline that works for you.
