How to Access the Mixed Voice, Explained in Layman Terms

If you’ve read my article How to Get a Complete Vocal Warm-Up in Just 12 Minutes you will already have an idea as regards perhaps the easiest and fastest way to get started with a regular voice training program.

Recently, someone in my Telegram group, Joett Voice Studio, wanted to know how to access the mixed voice.

And so today I want to talk a little bit about the mixed voice.

My response to my online student’s question was pretty simple... and it reads as follows.

It’s really about working on erasing that middle register, where usually the untrained voice will disconnect, to create one voice. But of course you have your lower, middle and upper registers but we’re just trying to create that seamless transition and connect them better.

And so, in my vocal warm-up exercises you will cover the mixed voice area of your range again and again and in so many different runs, that eventually you will strengthen that particular area and the transition through your mixed voice will become seamless.

Want to get started? S-t-r-e-a-m FREE voice training audio tapes, here!

My book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach contains over a hundred articles and tips for singers, and is available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu.

Prefer an eBook?

You'll find it on Lulu, here!

It also includes my complete voice training audio product Joett Vocal Drills Vol. 1-7.

Scientific Evidence Reveals "Fountain of Youth" Formula

Scientists have targeted a very powerful hormone responsible for human growth and cell regeneration that, once harnessed, has all the properties of a bona fide "fountain of youth."

It's known as "Human Growth Hormone" and it's an extremely important part of our body's functioning at the cellular level.

In fact, not only does HGH promote the growth and regeneration of cells; it also allows other vital functions in our bodies to occur, including...

Metabolism
Brain function
Sexual responses
Healing
Muscle growth

... and more.

However, as we age we experience a drop in HGH levels. All the normal results of aging occur in direct correlation to this drop in HGH.

For years, we've simply assumed that this is a natural part of the aging process. And we assumed there was nothing we could do about it.

But after a great deal of scientific research and clinical trials, we now know: We were wrong!

The Benefits of HGH
In study after study, the benefits of HGH are clear - and they are impressive.

HGH has been proven to have far-reaching effects, including all of the following:

Wrinkle disappearance
Improved overall life outlook
Exercise tolerance
New hair growth
Healing capacity
Skin elasticity
Back flexibility
Muscle size
Body fat loss
Sexual function, sexual potency/frequency
Improved cognition and memory
Stabilize your moods
Lower your blood pressure

... And more!

But How Does It Work?
In simplified terms, HGH is basically like sipping from a fountain of youth. When HGH levels are increased in your body, you literally turn back the clock to rediscover a more youthful you.

For example, here are a few of the benefits of HGH, with a quick explanation of HOW this little hormone can have such dramatic effects:

Weight loss

HGH can help you lose weight easily, and here's why: When you increase the levels of HGH in your body, you increase your metabolism (or metabolic rate). This means your body can process nutrients faster and more efficiently, which leads to rapid - and effortless - weight loss.

Improved memory

HGH can also help to improve your failing memory by rejuvenating the cells in your brain. With increased cellular health, your cognitive function (awareness, thinking, and memory) are improved.

Increased skin elasticity

The cell-regenerating properties of HGH mean that time can literally be turned back, reducing those fine lines and wrinkles and giving your skin the elasticity and healthy glow of your youth.

Increased sex drive

One of the biggest benefits of HGH is that it can directly impact your waning sex drive. As we age, our libido naturally drops - for some people, severely. There are a number of factors that cause this, including hormones, skin sensitivity, blood pressure, and more.

HGH improves all the key functions required to regain a vigorous, healthy sex life.

The many benefits of HGH are astounding. Treatment, however, is a little tricky. Let's have a look at some of the treatment options for HGH.

Treatment Options for HGH Therapy
Traditionally, patients in need of Human Growth Hormone treatments had to subject themselves to a course of multiple injections of HGH from the pituitary glands of cadavers.

While this treatment option was effective (if somewhat ghoulish), there were two major drawbacks:


  1. The benefits of HGH injections were only temporary, so the injection therapy had to be repeated over and over.
  2. The treatment was very expensive - adding up to tens of thousands of dollars per year.

For the average person suffering the ravages of aging, this form of treatment simply wasn't an option.

Another option that became available was to orally ingest human growth hormone. However, the molecular size of HGH and its incompatibility with the digestive system means that taking HGH by mouth simply doesn't work.

But a recent scientific breakthrough has made HGH accessible to everyone. The new method of treatment is not actually using human growth hormone itself.

Instead, it's a complex blend of proteins, amino acids, herbs, and other nutrients specially formulated to help stimulate your body to produce its own HGH.

The formula targets the anterior pituitary gland, causing it to produce and secrete more HGH into your body. The result is that your body's systems begin to improve and function like that of a much younger person.

To find out more about how you can stimulate the production of HGH in your body and combat wrinkles, muscle loss, weight gain, and a lagging libido today, go to GenF20.com.

How to Get a Complete Vocal Warm-Up in Just 12 Minutes


If you are a singer—aspiring, emerging or established—and if you’ve ever experienced your voice playing up when you least expect it, then you'll be amazed to find that there is an easy way to fix the problem permanently.

Yes, I meant that literally.

Nothing beats a good vocal warm-up just before you hit the studio, stage—or if you like, simply for vocal maintenance.

And so if you are an artiste struggling with issues relating to your voice, this article will offer handy tips to help you slip right through the little vocal hurdles and what's more, I’m also throwing in a complete breathing and vocal warm-up exercise package for good measure.

To get OUTSTANDING results, you only need 12 minutes a day!

The more entrenched in vocal malfunction you are, the more you’ll want to find a solution that not only sorts out the problem, but one that when done regularly and correctly can also propel your vocal talent onto the next level. You’re going to be amazed to find that for only a few minutes a day, just how effective this proven vocal warm-up regimen is going to be for you.

Professionally trained singers will attest that until you’ve experienced the advantages of a well planned vocal warm-up exercise, you won’t quite fully understand what it is you’re missing out on. So let me explain in not so many words. I’ll try to keep this short and sweet so you can get on with the exercises I am giving away for FREE at the end of this article down below.

When it comes to singing, there are two things that are most inseparable. You need good breathing technique to carry your notes; and your voice needs to have an evenly connected tone all the way up and down your lower, middle and upper registers.

Now, the only way to develop a clean and well connected tone when you sing is to do your breathing exercise (approximately 5 minutes on my prerecorded tape), prior to your vocal warm-up scales (only 7 minutes on Joett Vocal Drills Vol. 1)—in that particular order—every time you want to warm-up your voice.

You're only one step away from downloading my free voice training package. Quintessentially, here's the deal. I have uploaded a 12-minute vocal warm-up and breathing exercise set along with illustration video content from my classroom... which will show you how it's done. It's easy, quick, and you only need to do this regularly (once a day) to get massive results. It's that simple.

Water and a Bounty of Fruit is a Brilliant Way to Hydrate the Body

unsplash-logoNaveed Pervaiz
If you are a singer and you’re wondering what to eat to help you maintain a healthy voice, this article will shed some light on the quintessential topic of hydration and why it is of significant importance to vocalists.

Water consumption is a brilliant way to keep your body well hydrated. Furthermore, try to avoid alcohol and caffeine. Vocal cords vibrate pretty quickly, and so having a proper water balance helps keep them well lubricated. And what’s more, foods that contain large amounts of water are excellent hydration-conscious snacks, including apples, oranges, pears, watermelon, peaches, melons, grapes, plums and bell peppers.

When you feel the sudden urge to clear your throat, try a sip of water or simply swallow to quench the urge to clear. If you feel like you must clear your throat often, I would advise that you get checked by a doctor for such things as acid re-flux disease, or allergy and sinus conditions.

Nothing beats several vocal naps a day, especially during periods of extended use. Find a quiet way to spend quality time ‘with yourself’ rather than talking in a noisy place. The last thing you want to do is talk loudly in noisy areas.

Definitely DON’T smoke. Smoking tremendously raises the risk of throat cancer, and even inhaling secondhand smoke will irritate the vocal cords. In a nutshell, smoking is the fastest way to hell for any vocalist anywhere on the planet. So you bear that in mind.

If you’re in the habit of yelling and screaming, that (in my book) is vocal abuse and misuse all rolled into one package for self-destruction!  If your throat feels dry or tired, or your voice is getting hoarse, reduce your voice use. The hoarseness is a warning sign that your vocal cords are irritated.

One of THE Most Essential Elements in Developing a Singer's Voice is by Consuming a Rich Musical Diet. Discover the Missing Ingredients!



To listen to the Mica Paris Collection click here!

Now let’s assume you’re doing the voice training either by using voice training products you’ve downloaded online or with a private tutor in-studio or via Skype, one of the most essential elements people tend to forget is your musical diet. Put simply, what kind of music do you listen to? This article will discuss probably the most overlooked key ingredient to developing your musicality.

I talk quite a lot about this in my book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, and in a recent voice note to my predominantly Tanzanian WhatsApp group I talked about the lack of a good musical diet as being one of the reasons why a lot of millennial generation youngsters, especially in Africa, are failing to grow their talent. Cos, whether you like it or not, the kind of music you listen to plays a major role in developing your ear for music and style. Now, I’m not saying you can embody the total singing package by just listening to great music, you’ll still need the training.

So: assuming you ARE already in training, your next step is to soak in all of the great stuff released in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Why? Because back then, they had no computers and therefore it was either you CAN sing or you can forget about a career in music. Up until the 00s a record producer couldn’t correct your pitch and auto-tune your vocals from start to finish to disguise your inability to deliver a simple note. And hey, let’s face it: they made really good music back then.

And so I have decided to publish on a daily basis (if I can keep this up), my recommended old-school essential listens to help you get started with consuming a vibrant, colorful and rich musical diet that comes from a bygone era when the music was SO GOOD it will live forever!

I have already started publishing my recommended list of 70s, 80s and 90s music from disco to pop, soul, R&B, jazz, new jack swing and MORE on my Tumblr here. And from time to time, I shall be blogging some more on this topic. Enjoy!
