Primary moving parts of the vocal apparatus

Larynx– drop to create larger cavity.

Jaw–creates larger cavity.

Soft pallate— creates a smoothness and subtlety

Lips–creates smoothness, subtlety, and distinct vowels and consonants

Tongue– can block


These are the primary moving parts.   The role of the diaphragm needs to be further elaborated.

But, the basic idea in singing is to free these to do their things.

Each of these have supporting structures and organs that impact their freedom.
