Hello and Welcome,
My name is James Traverse. I'm happy to share with you information on the Middle Voice or Mixed Voice Method as presented by Marjorie Searcy.

Your Middle Voice or Mixed Voice is a balance of your Head Voice and your Chest Voice... more technically described...
Your Chest Voice:
Your Head Voice:
Mixed Voice | Middle Voice
Your Middle Voice is your Mixed Voice that occurs when you feel it in both your Head and Chest at the same time by using both head and chest resonance with a release of the full cord coordination into a "middle or mixed coordination". In this way it is not a style, rather it is a coordination as a balancing of muscle and air. Unfortunately, it is not likely that you will know what I mean until you find a teacher that can get you into the coordination and you can feel it for yourself. - this is why I'm sharing this information on Marjorie Searcy's 'The Middle Voice Method'.

Why is the Middle Voice and Mixed Voice Technique number one?
Well, when you develop a strong Mixed Voice | Middle Voice, good things happen!
Firstly, a strong middle or mixed register is the key to hitting high, powerful notes. Also, singing in your middle voice takes the strain off your voice. It removes vocal tension. Your middle voice also sounds wonderful, because what you are doing here is blending your other two vocal registers together.
You see, as explained earlier you have your chest voice… this is the register that you hit your lower notes in. And at the top of your vocal range you have your head voice. This is the vocal register that you hit your highest notes in.
Your Chest Voice and Head Voice are vocal registers that have their respective sound character:
When you develop a strong middle or mixed register, you are basically using all the good bits from both of your other registers. Your middle voice has the power of your Chest Voice together with the sweetness of your Head Voice.
