MIXED SINGING VOICE – 3 Exercises to Find and Build Your Mixed Singing Voice

 

Exercise 1: Ney on the Octave Repeat. It sounds like this. [Demo]

 

This exercise helps you to stop pulling chest voice and eliminate breaking and falsetto and breathiness in your voice.

 

Notice I sang “ney” and not “nay”. Make it an Irish “a” like this. [Demo]  Exaggerate the sound like this. [Demo] It’s a bit witchy or bratty. Don’t do it hard or loud. Just firm enough to connect the tone so it doesn’t break like this. [Demo]

 

Now it’s your turn. First guys then the ladies.

 

Guys: [Demo]  [Ab4 down to Eb4] Ready Begin.

Now Ladies: [Demo]  [C#5 down to A4]  Ready Begin.

 

As soon as you can connect the tone routinely, discontinue the exaggerated bratty/witchy sound.

 

Exercise 2: Gee on the 1 ½ scale. It sounds like this. [Demo]

 

This exercise helps you to keep the larynx down while the vibrations travel freely between your chest and head. It will help you connect the tone, without pulling up the chest voice.

 

Notice as I sing higher, the sound becomes hooty or hollow. [Demo] Be careful not to pull the chest voice up like this. [Demo] You can also add a dumb sound like this to help you succeed. [Demo]

 

Now it’s your turn. First guys then the ladies.

 

Guys: [Demo]  [B2 up to Db3] Ready Begin.

Now Ladies: [Demo]  [F#3 up to Ab3]  Ready Begin.

 

Exercise 3: New to Noo (as in nook) on the Octave Repeat. It sounds like this. [Demo]

 

When first learning mixed singing voice your mix might be weak. This exercise builds the mixed singing voice so you sound like you’re singing in chest, but you’re actually singing in a mixed voice. [Demo]

 

The key to success with this exercise is to sing the more open vowel, “noo” in the more narrow place established by the “new”. [Demo] If you pronounce “noo” too open it will pull chest. [Demo]  The “noo” must stay pure and follow or flow into the “new” like this. [Demo]

 

Now it’s your turn. First guys then the ladies.

 

Guys: [Demo]  [Ab4 down to Eb4] Ready Begin.

Now Ladies: [Demo]  [C#5 down to A4]  Ready Begin.
