How to sing with mix voice
Learning how to sing in mix voice is truly the key to building a POWERFUL singing voice. Not only will middle voice (aka, your mix!) increase your power, it will allow you to increase your range, improve your resonance and really SING. We’ve all heard about Chest Voice vs Head Voice, aka our ‘low range’ and our ‘high range’ voices – but the secret, my friends, is to connect the two with an extensive and powerful MIX.
How to sing in mix voice
Singing in mix voice requires coordination and finesse – unfortunately there’s no ‘trick’ to discovering your mix, however, there are ways we can unleash our mix and start building our middle voices. My favourite two methods for discovering middle voice involve the concept of ‘projection’, if you prefer a visual approach like I do, or ‘classroom voice’ if you prefer a directly physical approach. Here’s a super simple tutorial I’ve put together to help you access your middle voice:
Are you accessing your mix now? Another fantastic way I like to help people access their middle voice is RELEASING your registers – if you can achieve the ‘see-saw’ effect of travelling between chest voice and head voice, then you already HAVE accessed your mix half way through, you just don’t realise it yet! The key here is to understand that it’s not an ‘extra’ coordination for your voice, it’s one you already have access too – but you’re overthinking it. Are you thinking about ‘singing in chest’, or ‘singing in head voice’? BAM! That’s where your mix resistance is coming from, because in essence, your mix isn’t actually a MIX of chest and head – it’s neither, so if you’re trying to ‘combine’ the two, you’ll never discover your middle voice. Here’s another simple tutorial on turning your mix into a truly practical and powerful singing voice:
