Teaching, Tools & Tips




  • NCVS: Check Your Meds The National Centre for Voice & Speech has a page where you can look up your medications, and discover any negative side-effects to your voice.
  • Vocal Cords Singing If you have never seen vocal cords from a birds-eye view before, this is a nice introduction. There are no scientific descriptions, just four singers making some beautiful music, while you watch their little muscles sing.
  • MRI of Beatboxing, Speech, and Classical Singing For a side view of the voice in action, check out this fascinating footage of selected MRI’s. You can watch the tongues’ highly automated movements, and the adjustments of each subject’s vocal tract during vocalization. Please note that MRI’s are taken while the subject is lying down, so all the movements you see are affected by a different relationship to gravity than when we sit or stand.
