“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 the imagery of forward placement singing be helpful when learning to sing and improve the voice?
When we talk about placement in singing, we want to have a sense of the sound resonating forward into the front of our face – what many people refer to as the mask. Forward placement is a really efficient way to sing and more often than not produces a better contemporary vocal sound. But always remember that the metaphor of ‘placement’ is just about imagery…not actuality.
