When do I teach mixed and chest voice?
Date: March 25, 2014
Hello All! I am a band specialist turned choir teacher and could use some help! I know that the healthiest way for children to sing is in their head voice. I teach middle school choir, and I am wondering when I should start introducing how to sing in chest voice and mixed voice. Should I even introduce these concepts at all? My 7th grade girls have all turned into self-proclaimed belters, and the sound of my choir gets forced and nasally, not to mention the fact that it is super unhealthy. They really fight singing in their head voices, so I was thinking that it would be wise to teach them good technique for mixed voice. What are you expert thoughts? Thank you for your help!
