Inside Look of the Larynx

The Anatomy of the Larynx will be the focus of Vocalogical’s next episode! I love talking about all of the muscles of the throat, some with very very long, ridiculously long, names. Along with discussing the names of the cartilages and muscles of the larynx, we’ll also get a taste of how those muscles interact to produce different sounds! This is the tip of the iceberg, with tons more information to be enjoyed, and more in depth topics will definitely be discussed in the future.

I completely realize, however, that it’s difficult to memorize the names or visualize the workings of the voice simply through speech. I did a little bit of digging on the world wide web, and found a fantastic site that highlights the parts of the larynx you’d like to see! I’d recommend, either while listening to the podcast, or just after, tinkering with this program to get a clearer idea of what was mentioned on the air.

To give a bit of a preview, the cartilage to listen for on the podcast will be the epiglottis, thyroid, cricoid, and arytenoids. Important muscles will by the thyroarytenoid and cricothyroid muscles, with a couple of more thrown in the mix! And we can’t forget about the only suspended bone in our bodies, the hyoid bone!

Keep an eye out for the next episode of Vocalogical, releasing on this coming Wednesday, June 7th! You can subscribe on Itunes and Google Play, and can be followed @vocalogicalpod on Twitter and https://www.facebook.com/Vocalogical/.

Happy listening and enjoy our deeper look into the larynx, the house of our voices!
