How To Sing Mix-13 Reasons to Sing Mix
This is Episode Number 35, How to Sing Mix. I’m going to give you 13 reasons why to sing Mix!
- 1000’s of great singers have studied and learned how to sing Mix. Here’s a list of a few who learned sing Mix or to maintain their Mix from Seth Riggs and his Speech Level Singing Technique.
Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Josh Groban, Michael Bolton, Natalie Cole, Bernadette Peters, Carol Burnett, Robert Guillaume, Luther Vandross, Al Jarreau, Ann-Margret, Bette Midler, James Ingram, Julio Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Tevin Campbell, Angela Blasi, Barbra Streisand, Ozzy Osbourne, Whoopi Goldberg and many others.
- Mix does not change the sound of your voice. It encourages your unique sound and style.
- Mix keeps the voice healthy so you can perform all your life.
- Mix gives you the ability to sing any genre of music with any style. An exception might be the scream style used by heavy metal singers.
- Mix, especially as taught through the Speech Level Singing Technique, helps you master the vocal bridges. This gives you the ability to sing from low chest voice into high head voice with beauty, confidence and power.
- Mix gives you tremendous confidence in your voice and your singing. There are no breaks, cracks or straining. All the overtones of your voice are present throughout your range. If you know how to sing Mix, you can sing soft or loud with exceptional control of your voice.
- After learning to sing through the bridges, your range may increase an octave or more. It did mine!
- You have one voice. Not a strong lower voice but a weak higher voice. Mix unifies your voice so you can sing all the pitches, high or low, with the same strong and consistent tone quality and control.
- Your vibrato stays healthy. You don’t get a wobble. This is because the vocal cords have been connected all your singing life. Mix helps you sing powerfully but without vocal abuse.
- You can sing more songs because you can sing higher through the bridges with ease. Your voice gets stronger in the bottom, middle and top of your range. This opens the door to more songs. If you do musical theater, you get more callbacks and more roles. Auditions get easier.
- As your confidence grows you want to sing and perform more and more. The more you do the better you get. The more popular you become. The more people want to hear you sing. The more recordings you make and sell.
- In the hands of Seth Riggs, Mix has healed damaged voices. I’ve seen him rehabilitate singers with nodules and hemorrhages on their vocal cords. He rehabilitates their voices after surgery. After 19-year-old Stevie Wonder had surgery on his vocal cords he was sent to Seth Riggs for vocal rehab. As of today, 49 years later, Stevie has never had a vocal injury again. Seth has been his only voice teacher.
- When Michael Jackson was on his Thriller World Tour, Seth Riggs traveled with him. Everyday, three times a day, Seth vocalized Michael. Quincy Jones said that Seth’s “assistance during the Michael Jackson 1988 World Tour kept Michael tuned up like a Ferrari.” (Singing for the Stars pp.18)
Mix gives singers a powerful and flexible foundation upon which to build a long and amazing singing career.
Mix is also a vocal type. Do you know your vocal type. I’m not referring to whether you’re soprano, alto, tenor or bass. Your vocal type is what you tend to do when you sing.
