Hi,

I’m Claire.

About Claire

Claire Hosterman is an international singing coach who teaches students from all over the world.

Her clients have appeared on The Voice and American Idol, on Broadway, and in major films and TV shows such as Songland, Modern Family, Shameless, and on Netflix, Nickelodeon, Disney and more.

Clients range from students who have never sung before to singers sent by agents and studios for training. She also works directly in recording studios, helping to fine-tune performers between takes, and help translate the producers’ visions to the vocal artists.

​Claire has studied voice for over 15 years — in Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. She has helped thousands of singers learn to navigate all styles of singing (Pop, Rock, Musical Theatre, R&B and Opera) while keeping their voices strong and healthy. Claire is the sister of Emmy-Award-Winning actress and singer Dove Cameron, and daughter of acting career consultant Bonnie J. Wallace, founder of Hometown to Hollywood.

You can hear Claire’s interview on Bonnie’s podcast here.

A surgical striker who gets results FAST

Claire is a voice doctor. She’s a surgical striker who gets you results FAST. In only a few short lessons, Claire helped me get a callback for Burr in the touring Broadway show, Hamilton. She even taught me to rap better!”

Coaching with Claire

Claire is my vocal shaman

“The difference between Claire and a regular ‘singing teacher’ is that she not only has the top techniques out there, but also applies this intuitive, energetic, mental and emotional aspect. I spent years with another teacher with good techniques, but I wasn’t able to get past my energetic blocks (which I didn’t know existed). Claire is my vocal shaman, lol!”

— Erika, Los Angeles

How does Ariana Grande sing eight shows a week without getting vocally tired, while other stars like Adele have needed numerous vocal surgeries and cannot sing reliably?

Technique.

The right vocal technique is everything, and you can waste years and years and thousands of dollars pursuing the wrong singing technique.

By investing in yourself with the right teacher, you can become part of the elite singers who know the top secrets and methods that aren’t taught anywhere else.

Getting famous these days is easy; lasting and enduring in a world where your voice is constantly being pushed to the limit isn’t. You want a voice that doesn’t just book the job and turn heads, but lasts. You need to know proven methods to activate your “IT Factor,” unlocking the potential that’s already inside you.

Start your journey toward unshakable vocal health, superior technique and a lifetime of confidence.

Hi, I’m Claire Hosterman

I coach singers of all levels to bring their voices to the next level.

I am known in the industry for using a unique combination of top exercises I have learned from teachers around the world, while being a pioneer in my own right, using brand new approaches that have transformed the way my students view singing.

I also teach middle voice, which is neglected by most teachers, who still only teach chest and head voice. True middle voice allows you to sing using your face, helping you to bounce the sound off of the tiny caves and bones of your face, instead of using your throat to sing.

Most people sing using their throat and haven’t been trained to aim the sound into these hollow caverns in the face, which allows you to sing 100 times louder, much higher and with power, resonance, ease and emotion. (Sadly, many students who believe they have been “taught” middle voice still injure their voices and get nodes — like Adele, Megan Trainor and Demi Lovato — as they are often taught basic and common-place exercises.)

I teach middle voice the way I believe it’s meant to be taught, which can be viewed in many of my Instagram video tutorials.

I would love to help you bring your voice to the next level. Sign up for singing lessons today and start your journey to becoming a truly elite singer!

Hi everyone! I’ve been taking a break with social media for a while (as I’m also fully booked with my own students!) but wanted to say hi 🙋🏼‍♀️ and give you some tips to consider. As singers, we often don’t know that there are many facets to this art, and here are the top five:

1.) Warming up, opening and stretching the body before singing is crucial. A closed body will lead to a “closed sound”, as your body is your instrument and container for your air.

2.) This may sound obvious, but if you want to see REAL and faster progress, it’s important to warm up the voice (properly!) 5-6 days a week, for 45-60 mins each day. 30 mins is fine, but a bit more is better. Don’t sing for more than 2 hours a day! Always listen to your body, and if it hurts, STOP and find a qualified singing coach to help.

3.) Mental preparation is probably 75% or more of singing. Your mindset—how you envision the notes (are the notes ABOVE your body? Behind your head? Under your feet?)—is everything. This may sound pretty advanced, but the best singers in the world are MASTERS at mindset. If I ever make an online course—which I might this year!!—I will go in depth about this.

4.) Sleeping before 11 pm for 7-9 hours a night; drinking 8 or more glasses of water a day; making sure not to inhale cold air if you live in a very cold climate (wear a neck gator over your mouth in the winter months in NYC and Boston to protect your vocal chords from being injured by the cold air!); drinking Throat Coat tea by Traditional Medicinals; sleeping with a humidifier, etc, are all part of good vocal health.

5.) Choosing the right songs is an art and often requires a skilled vocal teacher to help. The key is to pick songs that show your FULL range, because—not only will your voice shine—but if you’re auditioning, the casting directors/producers will ASSUME that whatever you are giving them is your BEST and actual range. If you sing them a song that’s super “easy” and only uses a fraction of your range, they’ll assume that you don’t have much of a high or low range, etc.

How many of you checked off all FIVE? Leave a comment below of how many you work on daily! 🙋🏼‍♀️🥰🍩

Hi everyone! I am letting you know about an upcoming virtual conference panel on which I will be featured, called, "Creative, Confident, Happy Kids" with Lois Brothers.

In the interview, Lois and I talk about how, as a singing teacher (and as a life coach!), I help build children's self esteem and help them embrace their individuality--and how parents can use these tools at home with their kids.

This one day summit is for parents, teachers, grandparents, etc, who all want to tap into ways they can help their child be who they truly are, and to reach their maximum height of creativity, self-esteem and joy. As Lois mentions, "In our new world, parents are needing more tools than ever to keep their children feeling happy, safe and confident."

In addition to my talk with Lois, you can gain access to dozens of other experts in helping children embrace their individuality and increase their self-esteem (see the list of expert panelists below—my Mom, @bonniejwallace, is featured!).

To sign up, click this link:

If you know anyone who may be interested in this conference, please feel free to share this!

I hope you're all having a great week and I'll see you all in lessons!

Warmest,

Claire

Want singing lessons in your stocking this year? I wanted to let you know about some changes coming up in the new year and an opportunity you can take advantage of during this season.

Starting January 1st, my lesson rate will be going up to $150/hr — or you can get a package of 4 lessons in one month for $580, or 8 lessons in a month for $1040 (save $160).

In the meantime, however, you can get as many lessons as you want at my current rate by booking them before the end of the year.

Singing lessons make wonderful presents, and every year at this time I make gift certificates available (that have no expiration date). If you’d like to give singing lessons to a loved one (or yourself!) you can get as many “gift certificates” as you’d like, locking in the old rate, when you order before January 1st.

You are also welcome to share lessons among friends, family, and fellow students if you want to split the price with someone (or more than two people!). Let me know if you want a partner and I will add you to the email list of people looking for online partners.

With Claire Hosterman Vocal Studio growing so rapidly and slots filling up weeks in advance during the school year (I am currently booked until January), I have begun adding many people to the waitlist. Please let me know if you would like to be added so that you can be notified when slots open up during the week. 😊

I wish you all the best and can't wait to see you in lessons! 💟❄🎁🎄😊

Warmest,

Claire

Actors and parents of actors! Do you need a last-minute perfect gift for the actor in your life? My mom has a new book out that’s perfect for actors age 12 on up, as well as parents of actors, called Top Hollywood Acting Teachers: Inspiration & Advice for Actors. It’s filled with the wisdom of 12 of LA’s master acting teachers, and is an indispensable tool for understanding how the industry works, how to audition, different ways to approach a role, and so much more. Now that all of these amazing teachers have online classes, you can study with them from anywhere in the world… and her book can help you decide which one to study with! It’s inspiring and incredibly useful. You can order it on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. Just type in “Top Hollywood Acting Teachers book.” If you do it soon, you can still get it in time for Christmas! 🎄✨❄️🥰💕 @bonniejwallace @dovecameron ...
