Please for give my obvious newbie nature when asking these questions, but I am really struggling to develop any form of mixed voice. I have read a very interesting thread featured on this forum about the mixed voice, and it has greatly improved my understanding of what is supposed to happen.
The question I want to ask, however, is how I can stop the 'flip' happening between my chest resonance and my head resonance. I'm finding it really difficult to get beyond the Eb above middle C using correct technique. I obviously don't want to be just forcing my chest voice over this point, but I'm finding it very hard to develop my chest voice.
Does anyone know of any good exercises? And also, any vocal courses that they would recommend? I have heard a lot of good things about Ken Tamplin, but his course is very expensive.
Any help is very much appreciated,

If you have a flip then you are likely taking up a little bit of extra weight you don't need to. A flip will happen if the compression changes and if that needs to happen to go higher in your range then you are missing some fundementals in your technique. The way to start to get rid of a break is to find a released and free sound above it, a sound that might be light and small but is not pushed, then the singer can work back down into chest voice and find the right balence, going through your first bridge without any pull is kind of strange at first because people want to feel in control and coordinating the voice correctly often means letting go of the control we want. I am doing a video on headvoice and mix over the next couple of weeks on my blog youtube.com/cwehden.
All the best.
