Great job working your way through this tutorial. For some singers, mixing comes rather naturally, and finding the right exercise or syllable to sing on helps them find balance in their mid-range rather quickly. For other singers, that balance is built note by note. If you’re one of those singers, you might find balance on a G, but struggle with shouting or cracking on the Ab. Remember the “training wheels” that work best for you, and look for slow but steady progress over time.
