The purpose of this research was: 1) to discover if surface electrode EMG is a reliable indicator of the activity of the laryngeal depressor muscles; 2) to test the usefulness of EMG biofeedback
in teaching singers to activate the laryngeal depressor muscles and to maintain the lower laryngeal posture while singing; and 3) to determine if the achievement of said laryngeal posture improves the perceived quality of the sung tone, or changes any scientifically measureable components of the sound spectrum.
