larynx, jaw, tongue: head and chest voice

Tongue position - Another factor that will determine vocal tone is the position of the tongue in the mouth. By bringing the tongue forward and touching its tip to the back of the bottom teeth the tone will become brighter and clearer, as this tongue position will create a shallower, reduced space for resonance in the back of the mouth. This forward tongue position allows the sound to freely move forward, and also allows more vibrant resonance in the sinus and resonating cavities in the front of the head. By pulling the tongue back, down into the throat, a deeper resonating chamber occurs, promoting a darker. more classical tone.
