UNLOCK THE KEY TO YOUR VOICE BOX!

Updated: Aug 21

The voice box is also called the larynx which controls your breathing, swallowing and singing.

The voice box is a tube-shaped organ in the neck. The voice box (larynx) controls and actually houses the vocal folds (cords). The larynx houses the vocal cords and that is why it is called the voice vox. When you sing, you want the air to flow freely through the voice box and not be restricted by muscles trying to close the airway. When you train the muscles to pull outward opening the airway, this creates a bigger and fuller sound.


Instead of thinking about keeping the larynx down, just try keeping the larynx neutral. Most of the muscles in your neck are designed to keep the larynx high. To understand what it feels like to drop the larynx down, yawn and feel the larynx lower. You never want to force the larynx down because you will get tension (tight muscles) under the chin. Take your time and yawn, focus on the natural feeling of dropping the larynx, instead of forcing it down. What you are trying to achieve is an open throat.


When singing the high notes, be aware of the muscles in your neck; make sure you do not constrict (close up the throat) the airflow. Tension is very common with singers, but if there is tension it can be heard in the voice. Try singing the word “Mum” and go up to the high notes and keep the larynx down naturally.

The end result is to keep an open throat, no matter what note you are singing. Once this space is achieved, it has been my experience that a perfect blending of the registers is the result.


JOKE FOR THE DAY:

Why are jazz musicians so sweet?

Because they play in jam sessions.
