What is Vocal Placement? “Sing into the mask!” “Feel the voice behind your eyes,” “Sing on the lips!” You’ve probably had a singing teacher or heard someone here on YouTube giving similar instructions to these. So what’s actually being asked of a singer when these directions are being given; and can this kind of imagery be helpful when learning to sing and improve the voice?
0:22 What is Vocal Placement?
Placement is a metaphorical term we singing teachers give to the sensation we experience as our sound travels along the vocal tract.
1:43 The Tongue plays a crucial role!
Your tongue’s overall position in the mouth determines the placement of the resonance.
2:30 Vocal Placement Singing Exercise
Forward placement is a really efficient way to sing and more often than not produces a better contemporary vocal sound.
