Welcome! This set of webpages (think of it as a website within a website) was created to help you conquer scientific concepts of voice production. This site may be especially helpful for those who haven't taken a college course in physics recently (or ever).

Ideally, you already have the text by Dr. Ingo Titze, Principles of Voice Production, (click here to order the book). Material found here parallels the organization of the text.

Three learning aids were developed by Julie Ostrem and Jeff Fields of the NCVS staff. Funding was provided by the NCVS Continuing Education initiative from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Click on the graphic to launch that tutorial series in a new browser window. Close that browser window when finished to return to this NCVS web page.

Each equation that appears in the text is explained in plain English. Along the way, "what if" questions and discussions of the relevance of the terms also are examined.
One- or two-page mini-courses give you simplified overviews of many topics covered in the text. Animations, quick-time movies and audio clips are linked to the pages to enhance the text descriptions.
Once you feel that you've mastered a topic, travel to the testing center to see if you've truly absorbed all you need to know. Your test will be scored immediately to detect any knowledge gaps.
