Forward Placement Singing
âSing into the mask!â âFeel the voice behind your eyes,â âSing on the lips!â Youâve probably had a singing teacher or heard someone here on YouTube giving similar instructions to these. So whatâs 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 â what many people refer to as the mask.Â 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 âplacementâ is just about imageryâ¦not actuality.
