What is a romance? The root of this word can confuse and take far away from the right answer – to recall the Romanesque style in art, the literary genre of the novel, and finally, about such an artistic style of the first third of the 19th century as romanticism. In fact, all these phenomena have little or no relation to romance as a song genre … It is known from history that collections of Spanish songs of the same subject and similar in plot were called “romancero.” When the genre came to other countries, the word became a term. Today, a romance refers to a poem laid on a musical rhythmic basis. It, as a rule, is lyrical in nature, tells of love. Performing romances requires not only strength, but also the beauty of the singer’s voice. Music is not just an addition to poetry, but an important component of the entire mini-performance.

A lot of scientific works have been written about mutational voice changes in boys, although this phenomenon is quite common. A change in the timbre of the voice occurs during the growth of the vocal apparatus. The larynx initially significantly increases in size, while the thyroid cartilage leans forward. The vocal folds lengthen, and the larynx lowers. In this regard, an anatomical change in the organs of voice formation occurs. If we talk about voice mutations in boys, then unlike girls, everything goes more pronounced for them. MECHANISM OF BREAKING VOICES IN BOYS As mentioned earlier, voice changes occur through an increase in the larynx during growth.
However, in the puberty period, the larynx in young men increases by 70%, unlike girls, the voice tube, which only doubles. The process of breaking voice in boys includes three main stages: The pre-mutation period. This stage is manifested as the preparation of the body for the restructuring of the vocal apparatus. If we talk about a spoken voice, then there may be a breakdown of the voice, hoarseness, cough, an unpleasant “tickle”. The singing voice is more informative in this case: voice breakdowns when taking extreme notes of a young man’s range, discomfort in the larynx during vocal lessons, “dirty” intonation, and loss of voice also occurs. At the very first calls, it is worth stopping classes, since this period requires a rest of the voice apparatus. Mutation. This stage is characterized by laryngeal edema, as well as excessive or insufficient secretion of mucus. Continue reading
If the problem of voice mutation in teenage boys, vocal teachers and parents are quite serious, then things are different with girls. However, this approach is not at all true, since the mutation of the voice in girls is no less serious. WHAT IS THE BREAKING VOICE MECHANISM IN GIRLS? The mutation period, as a rule, is much shorter for girls than for boys. In addition, signs of voice mutation are not very pronounced. This is due to the fact that an increase in the larynx in women occurs gradually. Scientists have proven that the development of the larynx in women occurs up to 30 years.
There are several turning points of development in which it is worth paying close attention to hygiene and the protection of the singing and conversational voice. Similar crises are attributed to 12-15 years and 23-25 years, depending on the individual characteristics of the body. The process of voice mutation in girls proceeds quite quickly (2-6 weeks) and in a mild form. Sometimes perestroika is not noticeable not only to others, but also to the growing ones. However, this does not mean that nothing is happening. In the process of primary reconstruction, the larynx of girls doubles, which is much less than that of boys (three quarters of the original size). In girls, cricoid, arytenoid and thyroid cartilages grow intensively. The uneven growth of individual parts and organs as a whole leads to some temporary changes that stabilize over time.
