Articulation and Expression/Vocal Health.
Music can convey many different emotions. As you were asked to do periodically throughout the semester, you completed the Worksheet B, in an attempt to come up with a description or story to match the text. This is one way of learning how important it is to convey the words.
Since the jaw has a complex relationship with the larynx and pharynx, a displaced jaw is a problem. If the jaw is too far forward, or jammed open, the entire vocal tract is affected.
Hyo-glossus: attaches to the hyoid bone and pulls the tongue down at the sides in the back
Palato-glossus: attaches to the soft palate and can either pull the back of the tongue up or act antagonistically to the elevators of the soft palate.
Remember that the tip of the tongue (front) and the blade (back) move independently.
Tongue position, with some help from the lips, is responsible for shaping the vocal tract and creating the resonances that are known as vowels.
Poor voice use- screaming, talking over loud noise, and CONSTANT THROAT CLEARING.
