SINGING IN A MIXED VOICE
Your middle voice is the bridge between your head voice and your chest voice. Singing in your middle voice is also called a mixed voice, which means you are combining the head and chest voice. Some people think it’s a myth, but after 20+ years as a vocal coach, some people are able to do it and some are not. It does take a lot of time to master.
Singing in a mixed voice will produce a fuller sound. It is the bridge or gap between the chest and head voice. Singing in a mixed voice will allow you to sing smoothly into the next register without gaps or a shift in your voice. There are many exercises that help you sing across the break in register. It’s important to learn how to transition smoothly with different sounds. It takes time to master, but it is well worth the effort.
The middle voice feels like a lighter version of chest voice and a fuller version of head voice. Mixed voice combines the beautiful highs of head voice with the deep and strong lows of chest voice. It lets you access your entire vocal range at its full power, tone, and richness. So lets eliminate your “vocal breaks” with practice. Use an experienced vocal coach to help you smooth out the transition areas.
