In terms of singing in chest voice/belting I have noticed that "forward placement" or singing into the mask helps with brightness, pitch and resonance. However, when going into a mixed voice I feel the placement shifts backwards a bit. I don't want to say back of the throat but more the soft palate but also simultaneous with a touch of nasality. Is this normal/right? Or am I just doing it wrong, haha. I know everyone sort of feels these things a little differently, but that is the general idea if I'm explaining it properly.
