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!

Did you ever wonder why you should invest more money 💰 💴 💵 in a WORLD CLASS singing coach than in other singing teachers?

Most techniques are based on what was taught 200 years ago, and they need to be UPDATED! The world is no longer purely about opera—we now have pop, rock, rap, musical theatre, r&b, etc. If we don’t adapt or evolve our technique, we won’t be able to “make it” as singers in this ever-changing world of music, where new styles and ways of singing are being created daily. 💪🏻

Most teachers still only teach “head and chest voice” which—although they have merits—will only let you grow so far until you hit a vocal ceiling, causing you to push and strain your voice. 😩 True “middle voice” is what allows you to effortlessly hit Ariana-Grande-notes, and although it takes 2-3 years to grow, when under the right guidance of the right teacher, you’ll grow your middle voice so that it’s 600x more powerful than using your throat!

Have you ever had a voice teacher tell you, “Just push from
your diaphragm/throat/stomach”? This is possibly the worst advice in singing, and not only does it do nothing for the voice—it actually creates damage and often confuses students. You cannot physically “push from the diaphragm” (it’s physically impossible), pushing outward with your stomach isn’t natural (you want to engage your abs and pull them inward when you sing) and we all know where pushing from your throat gets you 😜😱 Hint: vocal damage! Find a teacher who helps you sing powerful high notes without damaging your voice—this is the way that pro-singers can survive and thrive in the music industry for 40+ years without burning out their voices 😉 You should never feel pain when you sing!

Many teachers teach exercises/techniques using the body, which is a GREAT start. But 80% of singing is actually MENTAL 🧠 and if you miss this important part, then you’ll actually take 10x longer to reach your singing goals. Find a teacher who teaches mindset for singers.

Finding the right singing teacher can help you reach your goals in a fraction of the amount of time it would take to work with other teachers. 😇✨ Drop a comment below to share your singing experience!

One of the best motivations to practice your daily singing warmups—if you’re not already motivated—is by doing an exercise I do with my ✨life coaching clients✨ (yes, I also am a life coach, and I work with people all around the world, helping them reach their goals and to have the best life possible! 🙌🏼❤️🌞):

This exercise is called, “The why underneath the why.” I may ask the student having trouble with motivation, “Why are you studying singing?” 🌻

If their answer is not very deep or inspiring, it won’t actually motivate them to practice. Sometimes, students may have problems committing to practicing singing every day because they just want to get quick results, be successful and maybe even “become famous”. 👯‍♀️😛However, deep down, their soul knows that this isn’t a big enough motivator because fame won’t actually solve anything in their lives! 😇 What I do is then ask, “Okay, so you want to be successful and famous as a singer. And what will having that do for you?”

“Well... I’d prove to my bullies at school that I’m not a nobody, and that I’m cool,” they may say. 🌺

“Okay, and what would proving that you’re not a nobody and that you’re cool do for you?” I may ask.

“I’d actually like myself again.” ❤️

“And what would liking yourself again do for you?” 🌈

“I’d actually love myself and express who I really am.”

“And what would loving yourself and expressing who you really are do for you?”

“That’s the whole point of life! Expressing who you are. That’s all I really want with singing.” 🎶 🌺❤️

“And how important is loving and expressing yourself on a scale of 1-10?” I may say.

“100!” 🌻💖✨

“Okay, great!” .... And that’s how this exercise works. Get under the reason why you actually say you want to do something. Do you want to become a singer? Why is that? And get underneath THAT reason, and then the NEXT reason, until you’re at the root of why you really want it. And perhaps you may reach the end and find that your reason for singing isn’t strong enough (which won’t be a great factor for motivating you). Then perhaps you need a new hobby! 😜 But get to the bottom of your “Why” and you’ll find the power to motivate you to practice 10x/day! 🌈🌺🌻

Here is a quick and easy, “birds-eye view” of what a good morning routine looks like for a singer 🎤🙆🏼‍♀️💃🏼:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1.) Drinking Throat Coat tea by Traditional Medicinals (this tea helps me teach 40+ lessons per week without getting vocally tired). Throat Coat also literally “coats” the throat, helping it stay healthy. Whereas regular teas don’t do anything for the throat—other than provide warm water, which can be soothing for the vocal cords—this tea actually helps me, my sister @dovecameron, and countless other singers stay vocally fit and healthy while having a demanding vocal career 🍵 ! *This is not an ad—I just grew up drinking this, and it’s a staple in most singers’ kitchens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2.) Regular exercise is a MUST for professional singers, and I recommend finding exercises that simultaneously get your heart beating and your body sweating, while stretching open the entire body. I like to do 20-30 mins of HIIT (high intensity interval training—you can look this up online!) combined with yoga or Pilates. Make sure you are opening your ribs (including the back of the ribs, in your back area), hips (hip-opening exercises!), chest, and stomach. Don’t do too many stomach crunches, or else you can get too “tight” and unable to support the sound.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3.) Drink a nourishing green drink after (preferably without any fruit—but if you must have fruit, keep it to low-sugar berries—as fruit can often have high amounts of sugar and water, and are not always high in nutrients. Apples, for example, are mainly just sugar and water). Green drinks help my body recover faster from such a demanding vocal week. Veggies help you recover!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4.) Practice your daily warmups. Professional singers practice between 45-60 mins a day, always taking one day off. Make sure you’re not just “singing around the house” to your favorite songs (this doesn’t count as practice! 😉) but, instead, doing the exercises your teacher gave you.

Many people ask me, “How do I get MOTIVATED to practice singing? Does motivation just ‘happen’?” 🙄🪴

In my case (and in many profession singers’ cases), 🎤🌞 motivation often begins with ACTION towards doing the thing you’ve committed to doing (in this case: practicing your daily singing routine). I’m often not enthusiastic to practice in the beginning, 🤪 and so I need to just start with the ACTION, and then this gathers MOMENTUM and INSPIRATION, which leads to MOTIVATION. 👏🏼 🌈

Seems so easy, but can be so hard to start, right? Just begin with a simple action, like setting a timer for 10 minutes to practice your singing. ⏰ After about 5 minutes, you may start to feel some excitement and momentum growing 🤓and then after ten minutes you are likely feeling more motivated to continue your singing! 🥳

I do this with things like cleaning my closet or a part of my house: I’ll just do ten minutes worth of the chore and soon I’m PUMPED, and I continue. 🌺💕

Try this simple MOTIVATIONAL trick out today with your singing routine and let me know how it goes in the comments below! 😎🌻✨

Many people ask, “Why is it more expensive to work with a MASTER singing teacher?”

Great question! Why do we pay doctors so much money? 💰 💵

Because they put in years and years in their craft and we trust them to get the results we need within minutes. ⏰

Would you trust a surgeon who had only studied two years in medical school? 😳 No. We’d want them to have studied all the years and gone to ALL the schools!

A top singing teacher has likely studied as long as it takes to become a surgeon (sometimes 2-3x LONGER!) and can help singers get the results they need within MINUTES. In comparison, many beginner singing teachers (who may have a bachelor in music from a college, but don’t have a lot of training in vocal mastery) may have a lot of information of the BASICS of singing, but cannot deliver fast results in the same way.

It’s all about how much you want to invest 🌈 in ☀️ yourself 💕 ✨

Working with a beginner teacher may be much cheaper, but it will likely take you YEARS to get to where you want to be, versus a master coach who can get you there in a fraction of the time. 👏🏼

Are you ready to invest in yourself today? 🪴😎 If money is an issue, how will your become a STAND for yourself TODAY?

Say yes to yourself today by booking a class with a master coach (me!). 😉 Link in bio to sign up, and (BONUS! 🥳) you can split the price by sharing with friends! 🌻

LOVE Skype singing lessons with my student, Callie! (And love, even more, that we both had a stash of #gretherspastilles in our singer cabinets 😂). They’re fantastic for keeping the voice and cords moist, and I recommend them for every singer. You can find them on Amazon today! (This is not an ad—they’re just a staple for so many pro-singers that I had to share!) 🎤✨

Happiest Birthday to my Goddess-Mother of the Universe 🌚✨🌌

I’m so indescribably happy that you’ve found deep, soul-filling, heart-healing love, and to see you opening (flowering) into this next chapter. Every second with you is my favorite. There’s no place I’d rather be 💖💖💖 Even sitting in silence with you is like a balm of wisdom for my soul—I always learn SO much from you. I am so grateful and excited that we are all about to be able to HUG (vaccine countdown!) and cook, read, be together indoors and go on adventures and travel again. To have someone in this lifetime who understands me to the depths of my soul is the greatest gift. I feel so seen by you and @dovecameron. I love you beyond star dust, owls and pussycats, and long rides in the car listening to Jill Sobule and drinking butterscotch milkshakes. 🌸🦋

Love forever,
Your Clairie
