2 Key Truths To Breakthrough In Your Singing

By Arden Kaywin | December 12, 2021

After you’ve had yet another disappointing audition or go months between paid gigs, do you ever wonder if this is as far as you’ll go? Here’s the thing. . . . You’re not alone. Nearly every singer I know has been through this at one time or another. You’ve become so good at second-guessing, self-doubt and control that you just can’t see the forest through the trees anymore. But the solution lies in your ability

Vocal Lessons

The Death of Voice Lessons

By Arden Kaywin | December 4, 2021

Bad news – traditional vocal training doesn’t work. Ask most singers if they feel their career success reflects the amount of training they’ve had. I promise you – the majority will tell you one of two things. Either they’ve spent many years and tons of money on voice lessons and still don’t have a high level career, OR they’ve had some lessons here and there but never stuck with it because they weren’t getting the breakthroughs

Do THIS to Nail Your Next Audition

By Arden Kaywin | December 2, 2021

Did you know that the main difference between seasoned singers who build their careers to widespread acclaim and the ones who remain in ‘Struggleville’ has nothing to do with talent or technique?

How to Perform with Greater Impact

By Arden Kaywin | November 5, 2021

Do you want to know the difference between the singers who succeed at a high level and the ones who don’t? You know, the ones who seem to always work? They always get the gig. They have no problem packing a venue, getting lots of people follow them on social media. And they really know how to nail a performance, enthrall an audience and how to perform with impact.… The truth is it has nothing

More Important Than Breath Support

By Arden Kaywin | September 14, 2021

Yeah, you need great breath support, but what will kill your sound even if you have the best support is when I hear singers say “it’s not that bad”. Because “It’s not that bad” is a death sentence. And hear me out before you think this is some scare tactic….. There are some real mindset blocks to work through here.  We’ve all been in the phase of “well, it’s not that bad”. My auditions aren’t

Why Traditional Training is Failing You

By Arden Kaywin | August 24, 2021

Here’s a TRUTH BOMB for you: Your singing has been unwittingly set up for failure. . . and you don’t even know it. I KNOW you dream about a day when you have finally built a big, sustainable singing career. A day when you give consistently impactful performances that win auditions, sell out tours and make award winning albums… WITHOUT burning yourself out, resorting to industry fads or having to be someone you’re not just

Want Your Big Break in Months, Not Years?

By Arden Kaywin | July 26, 2021

This is what my studio is all about. . . . . . . .Cause you can work on your technique forever, you can invest in producers/marketing/young-artist-programs, you can move cities, do social media campaigns, network till you’re blue in the face. . . . And NONE of that matters if you aren’t making an impact with your voice when it counts. Ask Grace Theisen and Jilian Linklater (both recent grads of The Intensive) what

WRITE YOUR OWN RULES – On Singing and the Unconventional Life

By Arden Kaywin | June 18, 2021

Are you a multi-passionate creative who’s been told that in order to be successful, “you have to choose” one path over the other? Well, I’m just calling bullsh**t on that! How do I know it’s just complete B.S.?? Because I work with singers everyday who are more successful because they DIDN’T choose. Let me tell you about my singer Jules Schroeder for a second because she is an incredible example of how being a multi-passionate person can be

Why Straw Singing is Total B.S.

By Arden Kaywin | April 3, 2021

By now you’ve probably heard about Straw Singing – all these YouTube voice teachers and IG singing influencers posting videos about how it will save your voice. Some are even selling $75 “special” singing straws!! (don’t get me started). Now, working with straw exercises can be helpful to alleviate tension and vocal fatigue. . . .BUT. . . .the reason why I think it’s complete BS and why I’m not hopping on the Straw Singing bandwagon is because it’s

By Arden Kaywin | February 2, 2021

Most people would assume that, to take a singer from good to great, you need to do in-person voice lessons every week for a long period of time. But that’s absolutely not the case. And Grace Theisen is a prime example. Before doing The Intensive, Grace had so much vocal tension, strain, and vocal fatigue in her singing that it kept her sitting on the bench instead of thriving in her singing career. Now, just a

An Exercise for BIG Results in 2021

By Arden Kaywin | January 13, 2021

Do you dread that moment during dinner with friends or family when the conversation turns to you and you get that inevitable question “So……how’s the singing going? What’s happening with your music?” . . . . .And you feel yourself contract cause you’ve got nothing impressive on the horizon. . . . . .And you’re so tired of trying to answer that question without judging yourself as a complete failure. When you look back at
