Mixed Voice – Mixed Voice Exercise and Technique /  / Learn how to mix chest and head voice (for men and women). 

Mixed voice means singing “between” chest and head voice by accessing your nasopharynx, which lets the sound vibrate in the “mustache” area of your face. This mixed voice example is very simple, because the technique itself is not super complicating. Like most singing techniques, it’s a matter of muscle memory and getting the sound to resonate, or ping out, where you want it to (kind of like target practice).

How is your vocal mix? Does this vocal mixing technique help you? Please leave me a comment and let me know!


By accessing your pingy “mask” or nasopharynx zone, you are connecting your chest and head voice and resonating between the two registers. This video demonstrates a simple mixed voice warm up — based on a baby cry — that allows you to achieve mixed voice singing.

As a professional voice finder, it’s my sworn duty to teach you how to find your singing voice! Learning how to improve your singing voice is all about simple, achievable steps that make SENSE to you. All of us learn how to sing on our own timeline, and certain things will click more than others. But it’s important that YOU understand your voice more than anyone else — learning how to be a good singer is, in many ways, getting to know yourself 🙂 If you feel you don’t yet know how to sing like a pro, be patient — every baby step and daily practice session helps. (And I’ll keep posting new vids to help you!)

  1. Hello! I’m really confused with my voice. I seem to crack into head voice
    around C4 and then I can only go up to C5 before it gets strained and my
    voice breaks again before I can hit D5. But it feels like I have to force
    air into it to be able to hit D5. Otherwise, my voice is restricted at C5.
    What could this be?

  2. Dear Felicia, When i Was 12-13 I can hit ariana grande notes i think my
    range is D3-E5 plus the whistle register i can hit the emotions by mariah
    caret whistle with ease,this past few months,I cant sing high notes
    probably because of puberty so my chest range is b2-bb4 (my comfortable
    highest is f4 or g4)i cant sing in falsetto cleanly when i sing in falsetto
    there a bump /break. Can you help me to sing in Falsetto with ease
    again……I cant find my Mix voice… i think im singing in my mix but i
    also think that it is just falstto because there a bump sound Can You help
    me? please please 😭😭 btw i always watch your voice lesson videos and your
    the only coach in youtube that i subscribe

  3. I have taken singing lessons for eight years and have never been able to
    find me mixed register. I don’t know why, some have told me it’s a mental
    block. Others say I need better breath control. But now I am auditioning
    for college programs and need my mixed voice sooooo badly. I don’t know
    what to do though. Please help!

  4. I’m a baritone but I have to sing tenor for chorus, and I’ve been trying to
    figure this out for a while. Around an E-F I just start straining and have
    to switch to falsetto, which sounds terrible. I keep trying to figuring out
    the difference between chest, mixed, head and falsetto, but I still don’t
    get it. I just can’t feel it. But I know I need to do it to extend my range
    not only for chorus but because I can’t sing rock songs that I want to
    without being able to sing high.

  5. So in other people’s videos, they say that the first male bridge starts
    around E4 and the second bridge around c5? So does that mean when I sing
    notes in this range, it’s supposed to be all mixed voice resonance?

  6. Hello Felicia!
    Thank you very much for all your videos. They are really helpful!
    I have a question about this one: is “mixed voice” technically the same
    than “legit voice”?
    Thank you :)

  7. I’ve always had mixed voice, but it sounds so weak and shaky. I don’t
    really use it, as I need to sing too soft to be heard in order to access
    mixed voice? I’ve been trying to strengthen it, but no changes. Any tips?
    Also, I’ve had vocal nodules, if that has something to do with it.

  8. I don’t get this. I can get over an octave higher in my chest voice than
    the lowest note of my falsetto so I don’t understand why this is useful
    unless you can some how use it to sing higher than your chest voice range
    without going into falsetto – which is obviously not possible.

  9. Hey Fel! I’m loved the baby example !extremely helpful. I have a concern
    though in my falsetto. When ever I use it it sounds airy or muffled, but I
    don’t have this problem with chest or head. Any videos or things that could
    help ?

    Thanks RayRay

  10. Love this video!! But I still feel like I don’t ever get my mixed voice.
    I’ve been practicing for a while. So I’m starting to get to know my voice
    but I feel like I still can’t access that mixed voice to reach any note.

  11. I am auditioning for the symphony chorus and really appreciate your video
    as a refresher since I’ve bern singing low alto for 20 years! Blessings!

  12. This is so great! I can’t believe how strong my head voice sounded, which
    is something I’ve struggled with for years. Thank you so much! WIll
    definitely check out your other videos :)

  13. If we aim falsetto at our nasal cavity we still do the same for belting?
    Also, when it comes to falsetto and head voice, are they aimed at the same
    place, is it a different technique, or is it just based off how it sounds?
    Sorry if these are dumb questions. Thanks!

  14. Hi Fel. A few days ago I started to practice this “baby sound” while I’m
    singing… But yesterday my voice started to sound kinda raspy in my middle
    sound, and I started to feel like i can’t control those notes , like my
    voice started to go to differents places. I can’t get go from my chest to
    my head voice without a raspy voice in the middle and a feeling like
    uncomfortable. I’m doing it wrong or is part of the “finding my mixed
    Thanks. I love your videos :)

  15. Ms Felicia, your belting crash course really helped me find my mixed voice
    but it’s kinda weak now… im trying to strengthen it… thanks anyway!!

  16. I know you said we shouldn’t expect to get it immediately, but I’ve been
    consistently trying to “find” my mixed voice for almost over a year, and I
    really don’t know what else to do. I’m in a choir where everyone’s pretty
    much a mezzo and I stick out like a sore thumb because my break is so much
    lower than everyone else’s. Is it possible I could be incapable of singing
    in a true mix voice because my friends have linked me to at least 7 miracle
    worker singing videos and nothing sticks? I’m sorry this is kind of
    complain-y, but I’m honestly really, really scared. (I’m a girl, but I
    typically sing the tenor parts at home)

  17. Do you have any tips for strained vocal cords/ Enlarged tonsils? I feel
    like sometimes I’m singing too hard and my tonsils get really enlarged and
    make it really difficult for me to sing. Any tips? :)

  18. FELICIA or SOMEONE, who understands and can share some techniques to train
    this thing – Basicaly my high notes or falsetto is very easy for me to sing
    a variety of notes, but going from chest register to head register is the
    most difficult part. I want to widen up my chest voice and be able to
    connect it with mixed voice and then to falsetto. Every single technique,
    plox! I’m doing this one right now

  19. We cater for all levels of experience, so whether you’ve been in a choir before or simply enjoy singing in the shower, you’ll be very welcome.
