Mara is a specialist in Bulgarian folk singing. After studying with leading American voice scientist Jo Estill, Mara completed her M.App.Sc. by research on the Bulgarian voice. Director and founder of Sydney’s Martenitsa choir, she has run workshops for numerous choirs including the Sydney Children’s Choir, Gondwana Voices, Sing NSW and Wollongong Children’s Choir. She has coached community choirs throughout Australia and has run countless vocal workshops in schools and at festivals in Australia and overseas.

Mara's workshops on the ‘mystery’ of Bulgarian singing  focus on how to modify your voice to produce this extraordinary vocal quality safely and effectively, and the complex rhythms and harmonies at the heart of Balkan traditional music.  Participants are introduced to a selection of songs from the exquisite Bulgarian choral repertoire, and learn several exercises to develop vocal health for any singing they may be involved in.
