    Oh my god!!! Great tip! I used to have the belting habit, but this really
    helped me. Thanks again!

    This is extremely helpful!!! Thank you : )

  3. milo tran says:

    so basically, we can access the mixed area by adding the vowel “e”, cant
    we?

  4. Mariam Nowar says:

    You had me at Hayley Williams.

  5. Katerina Goncalves says:

    Hey sophie, I thought the siren sound was for the head voice (that’s what I
    see on your video) , how can I know i’m in mixed and not in head if you use
    the same exercise for both? Thanks =)

  6. Its Myself says:

    Sophie can you make a video on “How to sing like Charice Pempengco”. Her
    technique is lowering her larynx to have a bigger tone. Thank you! 

  7. Its Myself says:

    Thank you hit G#5 note because of the siren sound I was able to access the
    phrayngeal sound with ease now I can Power ballads,Pop,Musical Theatre
    etc. 

  8. Thank you so much! I’ve been trying to figure out how to reach the note or
    how hayley does it without messing up the tune of the songs for so long.
    THANK YOU :)

    You were really good at explaining things, too bad you’re not a guy

  11. Karl Beltran (FartsieOwl) says:

    Nice 😀 so you’re also a fan of Paramore? Nice, really 😀 😀 :D

  12. Lawrence Munarriz says:

    Hi Sophie, I just came to ask how powerful is muscle memory. Whenever I’m
    ill or having a cold, I’m afraid to stop singing in fears of losing my
    voice. 

  13. kaden grey says:

    Can you do one on Jenna Mcdougall, she has a very strong powerful voice

  14. Sikiiaflamz22 says:

    Hey Uh, quick question that doesnt exactly pertain to this lesson but, what
    type of singer am I if I am in the vocal range F3- B5 and highest I’ve
    ever hit was a C6 or something near that? I am 15 years old by the way and
    my voice is sorta different sounding, a lot like Sia or Rihanna what does
    that mean as well? Someone told me that I naturally sing in Mixed voice but
    Im not sure….

  15. Thad Castle says:

    Damn you have a great voice.. Mixed voice is on key

  16. Elena Dana says:

    Some call mixed voice – healthy belting like Kerri Ho! you are both
    awesome, and it’s good to know that the same essential things have
    different definitions by vocal coaches! :)

  17. onfire4000 says:

    Lool I like your style, subscribed.

  18. Travis Andrews says:

    Wow. Your vowels for reALity and CAN’T were more pure than Hayley’s. She
    really punches the attack (especially on her /k/ and /g/) and does more of
    a KENT than CAN’T. Is it her strong use of pharyngeal that makes it sound
    so resonant and twangy without going too bright? I love her voice because
    she can do a very punk sound without getting shouty or splatty, so I’m
    trying to emulate some of her more efficacious modifications in my mix
    (it’s hit or miss with a male voice, though).
    Without throwing anyone under the bus, she did change vocal coaches and her
    stamina increased despite carrying more power up higher. Some called her
    previous technique problematic (for her style, not inherently… also
    complicated by her poor warm-up habits by her own admission) mostly because
    she “bridged too early” for the sound she goes for, so her mixed D5-F#5
    used to get a bit shouty and crack.

    Knowing that she has the same power in her D5-F#5 that she used to have
    about three semitones lower, why do some people insist that bridging
    “later” is inherently harmful when she can do it now, sing higher with
    resonance that used to be reserved for relatively lower notes, and can do
    world tours without cancelling shows and ending up in doctors offices like
    she used to suffer through with trying to bring her old technique up higher?

    Is there not a safe way to bring more chest into the mix just a few notes
    higher?

  19. Alana-Beth Cadence says:

    I haven’t tried it yet

  20. Luki Dion says:

    Does anyone agree that she looks like Demi Lovato…huhuuu

  21. This method of translating voice exercises into real song lyrics is
    something I’ve been looking for.

  22. Zoya Tareen says:

    Hayley Williams is my singing goals 

  23. Nahuel Martínez says:

    I so much love you for the contents of this video hahahahahah

  24. Irishjoy24 says:

    Sophie your belting demonstration at the beginning of the video had me
    doubling over laughing 😆😆😆😆

  25. CesarEnrRC1 says:

    But c’mon keep singing, your voice is beautiful!

  26. Is singing in your mixed voice without singing loud, possible or feasible?

  27. Alejandro alejandro says:

    Damn! that was so simple yet so useful. Thank you!

  28. urowskiilive says:

    ~0:47 reminds me of Christina :D

  29. Please, belting and mixed voice are two different things. Of course you
    have to perform belting in a healthy way but that’s not mixing. Just listen
    to Christina Aguilera, what she use is not mixed voice, it’s pure belting.

  30. Jenny Peggster says:

    Hahaha, you’re super funny! And your video helped me, so thank you :D

  31. Elizabeth Caplan says:

    Hi Sophie, your video was really helpful! Do you think you can do “Careful”
    by Paramore? I am a soprano one and I really struggle to bring out the
    power in that song. Thanks so much!!

  32. Gülce Uysal says:

    Does this work to all kind of singers? You know because, I’m a soprano who
    came here from classical singing with a more “coloratura” sound and I
    definitely don’t have a connection between my head voice and chest voice,
    they sound too different. And when I sing pop and stuff, if I belt the
    notes out with chest voice it works but sounds forced, and if I try to have
    that mixed voice I sound extremely nasal. So is that something that can be
    fixed or just me being untalented?

  33. Jasmin Pacheco says:

    omg i Love this woman she explains things in my language. ive never
    followed any vocal coach untill now sophie is the best! God bless her!

  34. Whel Centenaje says:

    this is amazing! i love this ! HAHAHA very simple but very clear! thumps
    up!

  35. riley cardwell says:

    bitch sirens went WEE WOO for me u need help me a different way lol

  36. daniela carrera says:

    I have a question…so the highs in the mixed voice sounds a little bit
    nasal right? You have to try to sing like that or it just come by trying to
    sing high with your chest? I hope you understand my question, English is
    not my first language
