Ep 33 How to Sing Mix Part 1

How to sing mix, or how to sing with a mixis a very common question. Inside this tutorial, I'll define and demonstrate mix. Warning:normally I try to avoid this, but in this tutorial I get a little 'geeky' about singing.(Vocal geek) Hi, I'm Chuck Gilmore with Power To Sing. How to sing in a mix. Well, whatis a mixé A mix is a mixture or blend of at least two things. When singing, you're ina mix if you have a mixture of chest voice and head voice. Ahahah. If you sing onlywith chest voice, you have no mix. Ahhhh. If you start in chest and sing higher andbreak or flip into falsetto, you have no mix. Ahahah.because you've lost the connectionto your chest voice. If, when singing, you

bring falsetto down into the area of the chestvoice that is supposed to be chest, there is no mix. It's only falsetto. Ahahah. Amix can only exist if the vocal cords remain connected. If your vocal cords break intofalsetto and you do not reconnect, you have no mix. It's only falsetto. Ahahah. Mixis made with connected vocal cords and a blend of chest resonance and head resonance. Now,where is mix in the voiceé There are several schools of thought about when and where you'rein mix. Some define mix as only occurring in the vocal bridges, passaggi. When singingin chest voice, as you sing higher, and while keeping the vocal cords together, the resonancebegins to move higher from your chest into

your head cavities. The resonance splits sothere's a mixture, or a mix of both chest and head resonance. This split occurs in thebridge or passaggi. After getting through the first bridge the singer encounters a secondbridge and then a third bridge. For women, there are even more bridges. With each bridge,there is a blend of overtones from the register below and the register above. Lower overtonesdamping, or dropping out and higher overtones coming in. As a result of this process, manybelieve that mix is only occurring in the actual bridges. Some believe if the vocalcords remain connected while the resonance has split into both chest and head cavitiesthat mix is always present, both in and in

between the bridges. In other words, everythingis mix. At this point in my singing and teaching, I think it's a combination of these two. Pavarottiis reported to have said that singing was like a repeating figure 8. Seth Riggs concluded,and I believe like Seth, that Pavarotti was describing the repeated narrowing into thebridge and the opening into the new register and so on upward. In my opinion, if the vocalcords remain connected, there's always some chest residue, even if it's very slight. Soeven in the highest head voice, if the cords have remained connected, that seems like mixto me, even if it's 100 to 1, it's still a mix. At a certain point, if the cords remainconnected, does it really matter if we say

it's mix or connected super head voiceé Theproblem is, what happens to mix when you sing down below the first bridge into chesté Well,you could definitely bring mix down into the chest register. So, I understand how thatcan be mix, but in most voices, you can only do that so long before the chest voice takesover. How, then, can that be a mixé A third concept that has helpful for me, is 'maintainingthe verticalquot;.(Vocal Geek) This is mentioned in the book, quot;The Voice of the Mind', by E.HerbertCaesari. Imagine a vertical sound beam started by the vocal cords and shootingupward into the mouth. In head voice, this resonating sound beam, if it maintains thevertical direction, will angle slightly backward

and penetrate into the head cavities abovethe mouth. Ahhh. Ahahah. In chest, there is still a vertical sound beam, but it beginsto angle slightly forward and engage the hard palette. In my opinion, to lose the verticalwhile in chest voice, is to grab the vocal cord, squeeze and close the throat and jamthe sound beam down into the throat. Ahahah.Ahhh. The tone can barely escape and has no roundness,no fullness and no appeal. To me, this is not mix. Maintaining the vertical, even ifcompletely in the lower chest voice, creates an upward lift in the tone. The sound beamresonates on the hard palette appropriately. This seems to recruit more than just chestvoice by adding a rounder, fuller tone, as

What Age Should a Child Start Piano Voice Violin or Music Lessons

A lot of parents wonder, at what age is my child ready to start taking music lessons I generally recommend six years old, or first greade to start music lessons. What I personally do is I usually give a free trial lesson so thatI can see if the student is ready or not. I actually recently just did a free trial lesson with a fiveyearold and she was way more ready to take those piano lessons than a lot of 6 year olds that I know so 6 is not ahardandfast age

some 5 year olds, some fouryearolds are ready to take lessons. You we have a child prodigy! So, it's totally up to the child, and havingthat little trial lesson first, is really helpful to try andfigure out if they're ready to start taking lessons. One thing that I look for is, Can they counté And, do they know their alphabeté because music is very mathematical. Not that you have to know complicated math, but you need to know your numbers andyou need to know your alphabet because the keys are lettered. That would be my

suggestion. Age 6 Or 5, and even sometimes Age 4. But try to have a trial lesson. Someone come in and evaluate your child.

HOW TO SING Basic Vocal Training Part 2 Sajjad Alis Master Class Online

Actually, tuning is in our mind, not in our throat. Because our throat is the tool which produces notes. So, to tune our minds, here's a very interesting and easy exercise. Which will be in chromatic notes. La La La. (D major) La La La (E Major) La La La (F Major) La La La (F Major)

La La LA (G Major) Try these. This is a really fun exercise which will help your mind to jump from one key to another very easily. and it's a practice to remember the last note you practiced. So, start by playing the notes slowly and singing with it. Then, move on to just playing chords. So, go up one key at a time while holding those chords. And.

When it comes to practice, keep in mind that too much of an exercise at a time is also not recommended for your vocal pipes. You can do a 2025 minutes session at a time. I personally don't advise you to do more than this. You can divide your sessions throughout the day. But wearing yourself out in just one session will tire your lungs in the long term. This. is what I've personally concluded when singing. Next! Technology is reaching amazing heights.

The result rate is much more faster now. All of these exercises that you do, make sure that you record them as well. Simply use your phones. and listen. Because. You may not be able to hear yourself correctly while you're singing. And playing it back after recording would sound different to the ears as well. So, always record and listen to what you sing. Developing this habit itself is an exercise, which is very important.

In the next tutorial, I'll tell you guys some advanced techniques which wouldn't just be in major scales. Same concept. but a bit more advanced with a higher difficulty level. Stay tuned.
