Lesson 5: Voice Placement
How to Place Your Voice for Better Sound and Volume?
When we apply a good open throat technique, the sensation is very close to yawning. You want to create a lot of space in the throat to apply the proper technique. The more you train, the better you will become at it, and the unwanted yawning will probably go away in time.
A yawn is the basis of any singing style. If you don't know how to catch the "yawn" position, try to sing all sounds similar to the English "R" sound. Of course, you don't need to overdo it, otherwise, it will be unnatural.
Make sure to keep a bright tone, and use proper abdominal support.
Placing your voice means focusing your sound on a specific part of your face and neck to achieve more volume and better tone. The ideal placement is the spot where you feel resonance sensations between the neck and face that vibrate sympathetically and reflect resonance like a sounding board. By focusing on placing the voice correctly singers tend to have an easier time opening up the vocal cavities that will actually amplify the voice more efficiently.
