Doug’s Marietta Voice Lessons Re-programs The Involuntary Muscle Groups

Marietta music lessons

Doug Derrickson offers Marietta voice lessons for all ages. He feels that voice rebuilding can be done any one during his life.

Below You will find five muscle groups that are used to control the larynx, but only two are used to directly establish pitch, intensity, and the quality and character (color and texture) of tone. These two muscle groups are:

  1. The arytenoid muscle group
  2. The crico-thyroid muscle group

These two muscle groups are the only two that have direct bearing on the production of tone. Therefore, since there are two muscle groups, there exist only two registers. Both Male and Female have two registers that are tied to a particular muscular action of the 2 muscle groups.

  1. The Lower register (commonly referred to as the chest voice) is initiated by the pulling action of the arytenoid muscle group while being the crico-thyroid holds firmly.
  2. The Upper register (commonly referred to as the Falsetto Voice) is initiated by the crico-thyroid muscle group while being held firmly by the arytenoid group of muscles.

There are  differences in sound of the two registers which are more pronounced in the male than the female. The lower register is rough and produces a heavier tone while the upper register produces a light, thin, feminine sound.

The two registers are naturally divided by a break which occurs between E and F above middle C. The break between the two registers results from two different muscular actions of the two muscle groups mentioned above.

Doug’s program focuses on changing the fundamental involuntary responses so that the so-called “break” is erased.

Doug’s vocal techniques Blends The Upper And Lower Register Into One Large Blended Vocal Range.

His Marietta voice lessons is developing new ways of thinking and a total realignment of coordination which results in new vocal responses, new singing habits, and an extended range, maximum resonance and vocal endurance.

Doug’s methods deploy processes of singing through the break between registers. These techniques over time changes the coordination and  process of the involuntary muscles, allowing you to sing without the breaks, creating a blended tone of upper and lower registers and a huge range to boot. You will learn to zip up your vocal cords like a zipper as you travel up the scale from low to high notes, providing a smooth transition from your chest voice to your head voice.

Not all people are alike, while some students of  Doug’s see results in increased range in several months, most have to be patient as they develop over time. You will notice an enrichment of the tone, improved flexibility, pitch accuracy, more agility, better balance, and dramatic increase in range, after applying the techniques learned from his Marietta voice lessons.
