The best vocal technique in the world today- The Mix
I was born with a growth on my vocal cords and a compulsion to sing. As a child, singing was my primary means of communication and actually defined me as an individual.
I started singing professionally when I was 14 years old and by the time I was 20 years old, the growth had become a nodule . By then I was singing 6 nights a week in local bars.
At 22 years old I underwent vocal surgery. Singing was my life and yet my instrument was damaged and I had developed some intensely negative vocal habits to compensate for my limited access to my head voice. I could not find anyone to teach me what I needed to know.
I studied at universities in Vancouver, Texas and finally Florida. By the time I earned my BA in voice , I still had not found my way into the 'Mix', mostly because I didn’t know it existed.
When I discovered "The Mix" through Seth Riggs and his Speech Level Singing organization in Los Angeles, I literally fell to my knees with relief, knowing my life as a singer would go on and even get better. I have been studying and practicing The Mix for over 15 years now and my range has increased by two octaves. I am happy when I sing. It feels like flying sometimes.
My favorite saying: 'if you can talk, you can sing.'..
My definition of singing: 'sustained laughter'.
