Mastering Mix, the technique of mixing head and chest voices, dominates all vocal programs of its kind. MM allows the singer to mix the latent qualities of the voice often confused with falsetto with the dark and deep areas of the voice. This “chest voice” is the speaker-voice range that builds stress to the point of breaking. MM uses three modes of vocal connection to achieve this mix: edge coordination, pharyngeal coordination, and the “heady” quality.

When blending these three mechanisms, the singer is able to achieve the purest form of her or his own distinct, tonal quality of head, chest, and mix. Like its title, MM specializes in the mix voice, resulting in a generous spectrum of timbres relative to a singer’s baseline. From an edgy and brassy quality to a flute-like and velvety sound, singers find themselves able to produce tones they never dreamed possible.
