    Hi, Camille! I've been working on my mixed voice and I found some flaws. When I listen to myself I sound too nasal. First, What I have to do to sound less nasal? Or there always going to be some nasality in our mix. And second, is it possible to sing in mix voice quietly? Or we always have to put some effort into it?

    Thanks for All!

    Also, I noticed that I'm able to reach to my mix voice but I have a hard time when I sing a song in mix voice

    What exercises do you recommend to improve my control in mix voice?

    Hi, Tobias! Mixed voice doesn't have to be nasal, but nasality really helps us to find that muscle balance between "shouting" (all chest) and "hooting" (all head). I recommend you sing on something nasal like NAY, then NEH, then NUH. As the vowel changes, you'll notice less nasality and a deeper, richer tone emerge. 

    It's certainly possible to sing quietly in mix - but you might find it needs to be a head-dominant mix (if it's high in your range). 

    And as for applying mix to song work, I recommend singing the melody on a mix-friendly syllable first. You might even follow the same order of syllables (NAY, NEH, NUH) before returning to lyrics. 

    Best of luck!
