UNDERSTANDING HOW YOUR VOICE WORKS

It’s important to understand your voice when you sing. There are three basic elements to produce sound when you are singing: air supply, vibration and resonance. The amount of air-flow and pressure passing through the larynx will determine the strength and loudness of a voice. The air pressure is converted into vibration, which is called phonation. As the air passes through the vocal tract, the air pressure causes vibration which creates the sound when you sing. You shape your tone through resonance. Resonance is the intensity and quality of the tone you hear when you are singing.

The vocal tract is made up of four parts: the oral cavity, nasal cavity, larynx and the pharynx. The oral cavity, which is the inside of your mouth from the lips to the front two-thirds of your tongue. The nasal cavity, which is the inside of the nose.  The larynx also called the voice box which houses the vocal cords (folds). The fourth part of your vocal tract is the pharynx, which is a hollow tube that starts behind the nose and goes down the back of the neck. Each of these four components of your vocal tract are used to produce sound when you sing. You can think of your vocal tract as a container of air starting from the vocal folds going up to your lips.
