We use our voices to communicate everyday but have little knowledge, respect of, or tools, to understand or manipulate this most important instrument that we all possess. Each one is unique in it’s quality. Why? How do our bodies work to produce sound? This science based incursion is presented by a professional performer and vocal pedagogy expert - an opera singer - integrating performance and demonstrative aspects with the science of the voice.
The workings of the voice will be debunked with video footage of the actual vocal chords at work via a laryngoscopy. Respiration will be explained and physically explored ‘hands on. Students will then build their own model of the lungs and model of the larynx as a rotation. They will play vocal games and experience phonation and resonance (the various ways in which we make sound). Learning by doing!
