Singing – The Tools

Standard

Wreath

These are the tools of a singer:

Lungs – source of air supply

Larynx – acts as a reed or vibrator against the chest

Chest – functions as the amplifier, like a tube in a wind instrument

Tongue, Palate, Teeth, and Lips – articulates and imposes consonants and vowels on the amplified sound.

Vocal Cords – the means to alter the pitch.

Diaphragm and an assortment of Muscles (that have long names) – used to inhale and exhale

The Singing Tools are also used by a painter…

“To draw you must close your eyes and sing.”

Pablo Picasso
