Before we get to the videos, here’s a PDF of the powerpoint presentation we used to review Chapter 10. It looks much better here than when it was all purple the other day! Hopefully this file, along with the videos underneath, will help everyone as you study for the Midterm Exam. Clink the link below (not the photo).

Voice Class Chapter 10 (Keynote Presentation)

Chapter 10 Title

(1) Singing Basics: How do Vocal Cords Work?

Good, brief description/explanation with real-life examples.

(2) How the Larynx Produces Sound (animation).

(3) The Vibrating Larynx.

This video, produced in Holland in 1960, provides a deep insight on the mechanics of phonation in singing. The main authors are Van der Berg (a scientist on voice) and William Vennard (a singing professor). The work reflects the knowledge and latest findings 50 years ago and a lot more has been discovered, but the main information remains correct and very well explained. First three parts feature real cadaver parts being manipulated; Part IV (at around 6’30”) features real singers voices at work.

Good review.

Good review.

(6) Laryngology 101: Reflux Laryngitis.

Medical issues: nodules, laryngitis, redness, ulcers, etc. and treatment

Warning: not for the faint of heart, but very interesting discussion of laryngeal problems.
