"With the use of the Alexander Method, Marieke has helped me expand my range, improve breath management, and strengthen my delivery.

Marieke is experienced with jazz as well as classical performance, so she has helped me develop repertoire in both genres.

She listens and watches intently and provides encouraging feedback.

I was recently told by a fellow student at a summer recital “You are not the same singer you were when I first heard you.”

Due to Ms. Schuurs’ excellent and compassionate coaching, I auditioned for the Eugene Concert Choir and the Eugene Vocal Arts ensemble and was accepted into both. At 70 years of age, I hope to continue singing but know it would not have been possible without Marieke and Cantare Studio!"
