  2. 2. •The voice is the only apparatus that is characterizedby the same word used to portrayitssound.When someone is singing it is ratheracceptableto say, ”That vocalist has aattractivevoice.” When a violinist isplaying it would sound weirdto hear someone say, ”That violinist has a wonderful violin.”Voice is commonlyused torecognizeboth the sounds producedby the act of singing and the instrument producingthesounds; violin identifiesonly theinstrument.The Oxford Universal Dictionary defines instrument as: ”A contrivance forbuildingmusical sounds.” According tothat definition the voice is certainlyan instrument. However, the same dictionary definesvoice as: ”Sound, or the wholebody of sounds, made or produced by the vocal systemof man or animals; shapedin oremitted from the human larynx,. . .concretely, the organs by which it is produced.” Re-read what I have italicized and youwill come acrossthat just one word isused to portray the physical characteristicsof the instrument — ”concretely, the organs bywhich it is generated” — andthe consequenceof the activation of the physical characteristics— ”sound.”For our purposeswe must evadethis ambiguity. The distinctionbetween cause — rekindlingthe vocal organs — andeffect — sound — must be definitely understoodin the student’s mind in order todefinitelyunderstand all that is to follow.When the terms”voice” or ”vocal equipment” or ”vocal instrument” are applied inthis book they will meanthe materialparts ofthe instrument. The result of the activation of the physical parts will be identifiedas”tone,” ”sound,” ”vocal quality” or ”tonequality.”• The voice is the primarily instrument that must be developed by its owner.I would like to give my intimatedefinition of the word singer: The instrument-maker andplayer of the voice. Inmy beliefthe definition must be broken down into these two independentelements —instrument-maker andplayer. We cannot presume that the physicalvocal instrument — the instrument that cansing well — already exists.If this were true, every personwould sound good naturally. Only the parts(the organs) outof which the instrumentis fabricatedare naturally present. Everyonedoes not sound good naturallybecause noteveryone is using thepiecescorrectly. The first thing the student of the voice must be taughtis to structure thevocal instrument. That is whymy definitionof singer begins with ”the instrument-maker.” Only after the instrument isplannedcan you begin toplay it.We are dealingwith an instrument — the voice — which exists quite separatefrom andindependentof the soundsit can or cannot generate. The voice — the physical contrivance- is the cause. The sound — the result of activatingthis physical contrivance — is the result.• The voice is the onlyinstrument whose constitutionis mostly concealedin the human body.All musical instruments exceptthe voice can be seen in toto. They are foreign bodies and converted by

Wind instruments becomeextensions of the player’s lips and fingers.The piano becomes anextension of the pianist’s hands, and one foot—for sustained pedalling. The only partsof thevoice that can be spottedon the outside are the Adam’s apple protruding from the throat, the jaw, the teeth, andpartof the tongue.Why is it important to mentionthis characteristicof the voice? Because an instrument thatis a foreign bodydoes not involvethe student’s ego during the growthprocess. The student of the piano, forinstance, can see,directly, his exactlevel of development. The voice student, on the other hand, usuallydependsmainly on hishearing to determinehis development—either he sounds better, and so feels better, or hesounds worseand feels worse.In the exercise segment of this book I have tried to take the voice, as much as possible,”out” of the body and thusallowthe student the prospectto ”see” the voice as if it too were a foreign body, for thisreasonavoiding egoinvolvement.• The voice is the singularly instrument that consists of within itself not one, but threedetachedmechanisms: the sound-supportingmechanism; the sound-producingmechanism;and the word-producingmechanism.• The voice is the only instrument that is constructedof muscle, cartilage and bone.When the voice’s three separateand independentmechanisms are precisely structured,exquisitely optimizedand simultaneouslyactivated, they can executebeautifulmusic. They are: the sound-producingmechanism, thesound-supportingmechanism and the word-buildingmechanism.The Sound-Producing MechanismThe movable partsof the sound-producing mechanism are the larynx, the vocal cords(housed in the larynx),severalmuscles in the neck, the back and root of the tongue, the uvula, the pillars of thefauces, and the softpalate. The motionlesselementsare the laryngeal pharynx, the oral pharynx, the nasalpharynx, the nasal cavity, andthe sinuses.Author Resource Box:HOW TO SINGHOW TO SING GOODHOW TO SING WELLLEARN TO SINGSINGHOW TO SING BETTER converted by
