It is really making a difference for me. The pharengial resonator exercises are REALLY helping me. However, when I get to the top of my chest/mix and have to flip to head mix there is a big difference in the tone. In other words their is a noticeable difference in tone. How do I work on making my voice having more consistent tone from bottom to top and not being able to hear when I allow my voice to flip to head mix. So how do make my head mix sound more like the top of my chest mix around the break? Charmaine on November 12, 2017 at 12:26 pm Hey! Great question! Often, two things need to happen: 1) The head voice needs to be strengthened. Do LOTS of head voice exercises to isolate and build the head voice. The more you build head voice, the better your high mix is going to be, because you’ll be able to more easily mix in pharyngeal/chest voice qualities up higher, with the release and ease of head voice. 2) Focus on lightening up your chest voice as you get to the bridge/break/transition spot. So often, we are actually just pushing so much chest voice right up until the A, Bb, B notes… and then there’s GOING to always be a huge, noticeable change in the tone. The tone has to begin changing long before that transition spot… start thinking of the “mix” as something that goes throughout your voice… start lightening up on your chest voice tone at around E/F/F# for sure… hope that makes sense!
