The Trans Guide to Vocal Anatomy eBookAug 30, 2021
Hello Trans Voice Explorers! 🧭
How are we all doing?? I'm excitedly watching the earlybird registrations for Trans Vocal Exploration roll in and I just can't wait for the course to open on Wednesday!!
(If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about, click here!)
If you're on the fence about registering and you want to get a little taste for what the course has to offer, I'd like to share with you The Trans Guide to Vocal Anatomy. This is a 20-page ebook that I made as a companion for the Trans Vocal Exploration eCourse.
Members of the course get the guide as part of the Vocal Anatomy module, but now you can download it for FREE!
Here's a little excerpt from the book:
The simplest way to conceptualize the voice is as any other wind instrument, like a trumpet or a clarinet. Wind instruments have three primary components:
1. The power: The wind from the lungs that powers the instrument.
2. The sound source: The vibrating clarinet reed, or lips in the trumpet mouthpiece, or vocal folds that create the fundamental sound.
3. The filter: The body of the instrument that is manipulated to shape and colour the fundamental sound from the source. In the case of the clarinet, we cover the holes with our fingers to change the shape of the tube. In the case of the trumpet, we push the valves to change the length of tubing. In the case of our voice, we manipulate our throat (pharynx), mouth, lips, and tongue to shape the sound.
When it comes to our voice, our lungs are the power, our larynx houses the source, and our vocal tract (our pharynx, mouth, lips, and tongue) are the filter.
If you liked that, that's only one of the twenty pages included in the ebook. Get it now!
