Placement 101 | Part 1

Welcome to Placement 101 with Bohemian Vocal Studio! In this complimentary short singing course, I’ll be showing you how to place your voice for the most efficient resonance – this will allow you to build coordination of your registers and develop your mix voice as you progress as a singer.

Placement is the concept of limiting any excess and unnecessary frequencies from your tone to ensure the best use of your vocal mechanism and efficient creation of resonance. Placement will:

  • Help you moderate air flow
  • Improve your tone
  • Allow you to start developing middle voice
  • Enable you to build your high range
  • Release and remove strain
  • Brighten your tone
  • Allow you to create consonant sounds easier
  • Improve your onsets

As you can see, placement is a huge part of building a great singing voice. When you’re ready to learn how to place your resonance, hit the ‘next’ button below to start the course. If you have any questions along the way,  you’re more than welcome to ask me a question using the ‘leave a reply’ box below.

  1. Kegan,

    Placement seems to be huge in attaining the type of vocal performance you want – this free course is great, the first video REALLY makes me want to learn more!! Should I be trying to sing through my nose for placement? It seems easier, but doesn’t sound the best

    1. Hey Julian! Absolutely, learning to sing with the right frequencies when you sing is imperative to a healthy, powerful voice. Any poor frequencies are simply a waste of energy and improper use of your vocal mechanism.

      No – placement is not singing through the nose. The point of placement is to LIMIT any excess frequencies that occur below your top teeth, not ADD frequencies into your nasal resonator. You’re probably adding a touch of twang by singing into the nose, and while this will be important to learn later on in your progress as a singer, currently it’s not the right approach to singing with placement.

      Let me know how it goes!
