Singers Are Not A Commodity

By Arden Kaywin | July 27, 2020

There’s something I want you to tattoo on your heart: Other singers (ie. your competitors) are irrelevant. I hear a lot of singers stressing: “Oh…but so many other singers are already doing this [song, genre. style].” Okay……..so what?!?!?!? Does that mean that they’re the ONLY singer who can be successful in your space? That there’s only room for one person to succeed in your genre? Heck NO! Listen: if you’re a pro singer – your

The Talented Singer Burnout Spiral

By Arden Kaywin | July 15, 2020

I just got off the phone with a brilliant singer whose career has been dying a slow death over the last few years (goes back before Covid).  She has a wonderful instrument, tons of talent and so much passion. But her recordings don’t make an impact, she has no real fan momentum, her live shows don’t get her any traction…….and it’s killing her career. Thing is, she’s working her tail off: Practicing every day. Writing/recording/releasing

Frustrated With Breath Support?

By Arden Kaywin | July 1, 2020

This one’s for you if you get frustrated with breath support.  Trust me, you’re not alone if you: Struggle to make it to the end of long phrases Have an airy sound Deal with tension or strain (yup….that’s a support issue) Feel like you never get enough air on your inhale Have trouble transitioning between registers (yup….also a support issue) I want to let you in on something. . . . .there are three simple

How Long Does It Take To See Results In Your Singing?

By Arden Kaywin | June 24, 2020

Let’s talk about RESULTS for a second……there are so many online voice teachers and singing workshops these days, but do they actually deliver lasting results in your singing, and if so, how long does it actually take to SEE results?  Most singers have been conditioned by voice teachers to believe that singing at the level they want is a looooooong and gradual process.  And they’re right in the sense that if you do it their

How To Get Rid Of Tension

By Arden Kaywin | May 13, 2020

Do you know what the #1 thing is that sabotages good singing and kills singing careers? (drumroll please) Tension. I did a poll recently on what the proverbial “Holy Grail” is for singers, and the overwhelming answer chosen was: “To sing without strain and tension throughout the expanse of my range with a free, powerful, resonant and vulnerable sound.”  That’s not a tall order or anything! (Can you feel me rolling my eyes right now? You probably are

How To Trust Your Voice (NPR Interview)

By Arden Kaywin | May 3, 2020

Is your singing career stuck in first gear because you’re afraid of really putting yourself out there? 😬 Or did it used to be easy to put yourself out there, but now…..after so much time and energy constantly chasing this dream and constantly coming up short, are you so beat down that it’s becoming harder and harder to keep putting yourself out there? So many giant talents never reach their potential because of fear. In

What Is The 2 Month Intensive Program?

By Arden Kaywin | April 26, 2020

Before I get into the real purpose of this email, I want to invite you to consider something.  And that is…….we are all in this pandemic together, and we are all handling these extraordinary circumstances in our own unique way.  For me, I think it’s important that I still run my studio as normally as possible, as it supports not only the hundreds of singers in our tribe, but also financially supports my team and

Financial Relief For Singers

By Arden Kaywin | April 19, 2020

I have some important info on financial relief for singers to pass along to you today. If you have suffered the loss of income because of cancelled gigs, I want you to know there ARE resources for you. Many organizations have sprung up to help musicians during this time. I have listed a sampling of them below. Sending lots of love and “hustle muscle” during this time. Remember, this WILL end. You already KNOW how to

Career Advice For Singers During COVID-19

By Arden Kaywin | April 1, 2020

Some career advice for singers during Covid-19…… I’ve been thinking about time lately. (Covid-19 is definitely making me introspective these days!) Being stuck at home without the usual daily routine – I’m experiencing time so much differently than usual. And I’m so present to the fact that none of us are promised a tomorrow. That could be seen as very morbid, or it could be really motivating depending on your mindset. And I know that a lot of you reading

SINGERS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: How To Stay Sane While Everything Is Going A Little Nuts

By Arden Kaywin | March 17, 2020

Here’s a little hope and help for performers during Covid-19. The pandemic is obviously top of mind for everyone right now, and it’s affecting each of us in different ways. Today I wanted to bring you some of the training I do with the singers in my Intensive Program because the same ideas can be really helpful to center yourself amid Coronavirus and everything associated with it. There are some great tools and reframes in

The Age Old Question: Is It You….Or Is It Your Teacher?

By Arden Kaywin | March 12, 2020

Throughout my many years of training, I’ve done singing programs and worked with teachers before that DIDN’T do a great job. One didn’t even bother to give me any critique – I spent $200 to blaze through song after song….I can do THAT at a karaoke bar for free! Another program’s information page was totally misleading (and the program was incomplete), and another teacher turned out to be incredibly verbally abusive. It didn’t matter – because

Truth Bomb

By Arden Kaywin | February 25, 2020

I’m gonna be brutally honest for a second. Right now, there are thousands of singers trying to make it in this business. They’re twisting themselves into pretzels to be, sound and look like what they think the industry wants. They’re obsessively focused on mastering technique. They’re going on TV reality shows like The Voice, Idol  and AGT just to get noticed. They’re even paying  to perform instead of getting paid to perform (pay-to-play gigs and YAPs). And despite

Change Your Singing With One Question

By Arden Kaywin | February 16, 2020

Have you seen yourself and other singers asking: “But what if it doesn’t work out?” “What if I’m never able to make a living as a singer?” “What if I’m rejected by the industry?” “What if I’m never able to break in?” “What if try it and fail?” “What if I can’t do it after all the training and effort?” This one question stunts most singers’ growth severely. It prevents you from taking a chance,

Don’t Take One More Voice Lesson Before Reading This

By Arden Kaywin | January 29, 2020

I’m sitting here trying to figure out the best way to open up this GIANT can of worms. And I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s really no way to sugar coat it, so I’m just gonna be blunt. The way singers are currently trained in this country DOES NOT WORK. It gets me SO riled up because you guys are being totally fleeced by a broken system and it’s costing you the fulfillment of your

Wisdom for 2020

By Arden Kaywin | January 13, 2020

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I was in Florida (where I grew up) for the holiday visiting family and doing a whole lot of nothing which was BLISSFULLY perfect. Now I’m back in the swing of things, and it got me thinking about what words of motivation I have for you as you embark on this new year and new decade. And I was reminded of something my meditation wrote
