This research aims to evaluate the effects of vocal conditioning through two semioccluded vocal tract exercises (SOVTE) in choir singers.


This research aims to evaluate the effects of vocal conditioning through two semioccluded vocal tract exercises (SOVTE) - Finnish tube and phonation in high strength straw - in vocal parameters, vocal extension profile and maximum phonation time for a period of four months in a group of singers. acoustic analysis will be performed of the average parameters of the fundamental frequency (F0), jitter, shimmer and glottal to Noise Excitation (GNE) by VoxMetria program and perceptual analysis through Consensus Assessment Perceptual Hearing the Voice Protocol (CAPE-V) three times: before the vocal conditioning, after the last meeting of the technical realization and a week after the vocal conditioning period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pathological processes that affect voice production, usually involving VOCAL CORDS and the LARYNGEAL MUCOSA. Voice disorders can be caused by organic (anatomical), or functional (emotional or psychological) factors leading to DYSPHONIA; APHONIA; and defects in VOICE QUALITY, loudness, and pitch.

Measurement of parameters of the speech product such as vocal tone, loudness, pitch, voice quality, articulation, resonance, phonation, phonetic structure and prosody.

That component of SPEECH which gives the primary distinction to a given speaker's VOICE when pitch and loudness are excluded. It involves both phonatory and resonatory characteristics. Some of the descriptions of voice quality are harshness, breathiness and nasality.

A variety of techniques used to help individuals utilize their voice for various purposes and with minimal use of muscle energy.

A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
