Singing has always been an interest of mine. For many years, I lacked the proper vocal technique and confidence to pursue singing. After my first voice lesson with Claire Stadtmueller, I knew that I had found the solution to finding my voice. In what seemed like no time at all, I noticed my vocal technique, vocal stamina and range had improved greatly. I was even accepted into Rhode Island All-State Chorus, after being previously rejected prior to my lessons with Claire. Her professionalism, knowledge and pure talent make Claire a truly inspiring and motivating teacher.
I was fortunate enough to study with Claire for one semester while my teacher was on sabbatical. In that short amount of time she helped to carefully craft my voice and expand my range upward. Her ability to assist in my process of creating a richer vocal tone was unparalleled. Claire is able to provide her students with a learning atmosphere that carefully balances productivity alongside critique, while still maintaining an encouraging and positive learning experience.
Of all the people I have worked on singing with, I learned, retained and grew as a singer the most from my lessons with Claire.
Look what you did to my voice!

Thank you for creating a most beautiful vigil last evening with your recitation of your poem. You have a phenomenal voice and your delivery was excellent.

My vocal therapist, an MD, is VERY impressed with the progress I've made with you!! She noticed that I've improved leaps and bounds since I last saw her- and that's all thanks to you. I'm so blessed to have encountered you even for the short amount of time that I did before moving back home.
I HAVE KNOWN CLAIRE OVER THE YEARS AND AS AN INTERNATIONALLY TRAINED OPERA COACH I HAD SOUGHT OUT
HER EXPERIENCE TO AMELIORATE MY VOICE FATIGUE. I AM THE SALES DEVELOPMENT MANAGER FOR A GLOBAL
COMPANY, AND SPEND THE MAJORITY OF MY DAY TALKING. THROUGH HER TUTELAGE BOTH MY VOICE FATIGUE AND
TONALITY HAVE BEEN GREATLY IMPROVED, FACILITATING A MORE ADVANTAGEOUS OUTCOME WITH MY BUSINESS
Overall, Claire is an amazing teacher and singer/performer. I loved that my daughter's singing improved after just one lesson, and that she was taught the proper technique for singing. My daughter surprised our family with songs ( Claire helped her prepare them) during the holidays, which sounded beautiful. We could not believe how much her voice has improved since we first started with Claire! In addition, Claire is also a very beautiful and loving person, and she makes all of her students feel like family
Claire is an outstanding and extraordinary teacher. I am a complete beginner, but through her depth of experience as a professional Opera singer and vocal coach, she quickly walked me through vocal exercises and singing on pitch within just a few lessons. Her verbal cues and adjustments were so clear and specific to me that I have learned more in a month that I thought I would learn in a entire year of lessons.
I highly recommend Claire to everyone, professionals, amateurs, complete beginners !
