VOICE AND THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE

Alexander Technique lessons

In an Alexander Technique lesson, you learn how you do move, and how you can change your movement to be easier, lighter and more fluid. New movement options are learned through everyday activities, such as walking and standing up from a chair, or through specific activities, such as playing piano or dancing. Marieke will guide you with a gentle touch, demonstration and discussion. Dress comfortably. 

Voice lessons

Voice lessons are offered for singing and speaking. Lessons include breathing re-coordination, voice training and presentation training.  Explore range, volume, articulation, resonance and expression on songs or script of your choosing. Students can audio or video tape lessons for learning purposes. 

Alexander Technique for Musicians

Are you having physical discomfort or tension while playing an instrument? Or feel stuck in your progress? Bring your instrument with you for an Alexander Technique lesson and discover how you can play with more ease and flexibility. 

What is the Alexander Technique?

Created by FM Alexander in the early 20th century, the Alexander Technique is recognized worldwide as an educational process of improving coordination. Students discover the tools for unlearning poor habits of movement, restoring organic balance, ease and grace to everything that they do. YouTube videos and TED talks discuss the Alexander Technique online and are a great place to start, but the Alexander Technique experience requires learning firsthand from a certified teacher, like Marieke.

Alexis, testimonial for Marieke Schuurs"Working with Marieke has been a dream. I have been working with her on the Alexander Technique as well as singing and it has helped immensely not only with my voice but with my work as a massage therapist. (Sometimes I even bring my guitar to a lesson and we work on that too!)

I'm a shy person and the confidence I get from singing is benefiting every aspect of my life.
