"I sang it much better in rehearsal!" Heard that before? Find out how effort and stressful situations affect your voice. Discover your false/vestibular folds/cords. Interchangeable terms, folds is becoming a more common way to describe these parts of the body in order to prevent the misunderstanding that they are stringy rather than having body and flexibility. They are part of the vocal mechanism (larynx) we are going to find out during this presentation where they are and how controlling them is possible and can help you keep consistent voice quality between rehearsal and performance.
