Mixed voice


Just an amateur, what the hell do I know?

 A mixed voice, to me, suggests resonating with both the nasal-sinus cavity and simultaneously the airway from above diaphragm.   Tom Jones and Julie Andrews have very good mixed voices.  How does Tom Jones resonante bass while singing these screaming highs?   Somehow he uses both resonanting cavities simultaneously?

 The soft pallet is only one of the factors affecting resonance– others being placement, blockage, muscle tone, mental thought, more, and, in my opinion, most important is body posture, including head-chest alignment.  Basically, what one is trying to create is a relaxed vocal cord that resonantes in two fully open cavities simultaneously.

 So, my amateur opinion is the soft pallet change will help.
