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 to do with becoming an insta-celebrity. It has nothing to do with building a following & creating massive amounts of content. It has nothing to do with going to Juilliard or Berkeley School of Music… And it has even less to do with their talent. It’s incredibly simple, but the truth is most vocal coaches ignore it. If you want to learn this simple truth so that your performances, auditions and recordings bring you the results that are commensurate with your talent, then it’s time to go deep on how to perform with impact.

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 THAT bad…. I usually don’t bomb them, I just need somebody to take a chance on me. My recordings aren’t THAT bad…. I just need an angel investor for the right ________ (fill in the blank: marketing, producer, etc) Oh, the tension/strain/vocal fatigue I experience isn’t THAT bad…..other singers are far worse – I just have to not sing for the next few days then I’m ok. It’s really not that bad…I mean, yeah, I spend more time at my side job so I can support my singing then I do actually singing (which makes me super exhausted and burnt out for when I do have opportunities to sing), but hey…other people are far worse, at least I have a job. Oh, it’s not that
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 to get noticed. And there’s so much frustration and anxiety because you’ve been training and hustling for so long and you’re not seeing the results of that work in the form of the thriving career you want. You KNOW you’ve got talent but you feel overlooked as other singers get the gigs. You find yourself getting more and more in your head and questioning if you’re really good enough to make it. You’re scared of quitting but you’re also scared of this being as good as gets….of never being able to get to that next level. Don’t worry, it’s normal. The bigger the dream the bigger the fear. But here’s the problem: You have been unwittingly set up for failure – and it’s not your fault! The rotten
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 happens once you do the work and you’ve made The 5 Shifts. You get development deals and you win competitions just like they did. . . . And you do this not years later, but within A FEW MONTHS. Curious about The 5 Shifts? I talk about them in this free Masterclass. Watch Now: https://webinar.ardenkaywinvocalstudio.com/s/nR2MHP?utm_source=WebsiteBlogPost
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 a superpower when you know how to write your own rules. Jules is a visionary entrepreneur who founded the podcast Unconventional Life, Lessons From The Path Less Travelled.

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 a BANDAID on a MOSQUITO BITE. Why, you ask? Because it doesn’t address the real problem!! There’s so much bad information – and “fad” information – out there and I don’t want you to be misled. So this Thursday I went LIVE in my FB Group (The Pro Singer Success Collective) to give you some real information about Straw Singing. We talked about: What Straw Singing is, why people use it and why it’s useless for singers who care about the health and longevity of their voice and their careers. AND what you should be doing instead. If you weren’t able to tune in for the live broadcast on FB, you can watch right here! If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to
