What happens to the larynx when a person sings in a low voice

Why would we use a low larynx? Lowering the larynx increases the space in the pharynx (or the throat, roughly speaking) and tunes our resonances to the deeper, warmer tones. For the vocal geeks: we can get lower frequency harmonic boost, and a whole load of other stuff off the back of that.

What happens to the larynx when a person sings in a high voice?

Higher pitches require more space, and an elevated larynx shortens the resonator tract, making higher notes more difficult to sing. With a high larynx, getting into the upper passaggio and the high vocal range is usually difficult because the folds can't pivot properly for the correct register changes to occur.

What happens to the sound of your voice when you lower your larynx?

When you lower your voice, your vocal cords are relaxed and more floppy. When you make your voice higher, your vocal cords tighten. (You can notice this difference in how they feel as you adjust your speech.) As your larynx grows, your vocal cords grow longer and thicker.

This position is lower than the speech/resting position, which is ideal for contemporary singing but insufficient for opera. Coupled with a high soft palate and relaxed pharynx, the low larynx creates the most exciting and beautiful operatic resonance your body can produce.
