What is resonance?
Resonance is the strengthening and amplification of a vocal note. The quality and texture of that note depends on the the amount of resonance given in each of the different resonators.

What is Clavicular breathing?
Clavicular breathing occurs when the ribs move upwards but not outwards when breathing in, holding air in the upper lungs raising the shoulders.

What happens within the chest cavity to cause the lungs to inflate?
As the area inside the chest increases allowing the lungs to inflate, the air pressure reduces and to equalize the pressure air rushes into the lungs through the nose or mouth.

What is support?
Support is having the right amount of aadominal pressure to create the right amount of breath force for the sound you want to use.
4 of 33
Why is audibility?
Audibility is strong supported breath and forward placement of resonance (air and sound brought forward using the hard palate as a sounding board.
5 of 33
Why are they called secondary resonators?
They are not official resonators as the vibrations come from the pharyngeal, oral and nasal resonators
6 of 33
How is sound turned into speech?
Sound is turned into speech by using the organs of articulation

Where does voice begin?
Voice begins with an impulse from the brain.
8 of 33
Where is the larynx?
The larynx or voice box is located in the upper part of the trachea.
9 of 33
How do the vocal fold generate sound?
The out breath causes the edges of the folds to vibrate.
10 of 33
What are the organs of articulation?
These are the tongue, the teeth, the teeth ridge, the lips and the hard and soft palates
11 of 33
What happens within the voice box when we use out voice?
We close two bands of muscular tissue in the larynx - these are called the vocal folds - across the air low

How do you avoid clavicular breathing?
Make sure your spin is lengthened and your shoulders, neck and jw are free from tension. Relaxation exercises are useful to achieve this.

What is mental projection?
Mental projection is engaging with the audiene by commanding their attention ensuring the emotion is conveyed to the audience.
14 of 33
What is the larynx's primary body fuction?
To protect the airway and prevent anything falling inside the trachea for example food or water

Why is being able to support your voice a useful skill?
It is useful to be able to project your voice across a large space or to sustain the voice over a long phrase.

What is projection?
projection involves three things: Audibility, Intelligibility and mental projection

Where is the Nasal resonator?
18 of 33
Where is the pharyngeal resonator?
This is the long muscular tube which extends upwards from the larynx ending at the back of the throat. It's the first resonating space the note will reach. The pharynx can change its shape and size. You must try to 'open your throat" to increase your

What is head resonance?
This is the vibrations felt in the head when sound is produced
20 of 33
What is chest resonance?
This is the vibration caused in the chest when sound is produced.
21 of 33
How do you balance resonance?
This is achieved by balancing the use of all the resonators without over using any one in particular.
22 of 33
What is Intelligibility?
Intelligibility is clarity of speech created by lip and tongue muscularity i.e. precise articulation. The use of appropriate modulation and emphasis
23 of 33
What is forward projection?
This is when the breath force used is strong enough to bounce the sound off the hard palate and out through the lips.
24 of 33
Where is the oral resonator?
The oral resonator is in the mouth. The lower jaw is the floor of the oral resonator. The tongue lies on the floor of it. The lips form the exit of the oral resonator. The hard palate forms the roof of the oral resonator; the soft palate is the back
25 of 33
What are the two types of nasal resonance?
Firstly there is the nasa; resoance caused bu air passing into the nasal cavity this can be heard on the 'm' 'n' and 'ng' sound in the English language. Secondly the note hits the hard palate behind the teeth and the sound vibrations are carried

What is a constant?
A consonant is an obstructed sound formed by using the organs of articulation
27 of 33
Where is your centre?
Your centre is an imaginary point below your navel.
28 of 33
What is a vowel sound?
A vowel sound is an unobstructed sound formed by the changing shape of the mouth

What are the bones in the body?
The spine is made up of 12 pairs of vertebrae, 7 pairs of ribs join the sternum and three pairs join the seventh rib and the two pair are 'floating'
30 of 33
What are the muscles in the body?
The intercostal muscles are between the ribs, the diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle dividing the chest and abdomen. The abs form part of the abdominal cavity and helps control the D
31 of 33
IC contracts, ribs move up and out, diaphragm flattens, more space in chest so lungs expand, air pressure redices and air flowing in through nose or mouse to equalise the pressure. Abs release + lungs fill with air
32 of 33
Abs/D/Ribs converge. Abs contract, D rises and ribs return to original position as the IC relax. Lugs compress and lungs flows out through nose or mouth powered by ABS
