buildyourownlarynxWhen Jeremy created the free tilting larynx template, he had no idea it would be downloaded at a rate of 15 a day for more than 10 years!

If you haven’t already seen the paper larynx, it’s one of the only larynx models that has a tilting thyroid and tilting/revolving arytenoids. It is as close to the real movements as you can get with paper and pins.

Jeremy has also created a silent movie to show you how to put it together. The process was filmed in one take, and he now knows how the Blue Peter presenters feel. The model had to be held and worked upside down and backwards to register properly on the film.

Jeremy recommends using scissors, glue and the type of paper fasteners that open out to make the arytenoid and cricothyroid movements as accurate as possible.

When you come to make the paper larynx, you will see that points B and C on the cricoid cartilage are marked as lines rather than points. If you cut along those lines to make small slits at B and C, the cricothyroid joint can pivot AND slide. This makes it much closer to the actual movements of the cartilages.

    “One of my favorite resources from Vocal Process is the ‘Build Your Own Tilting Larynx‘. In all its simplicity, this paper larynx can help you or your students learn many things about the larynx and its functions. The model is available as a free PDF template download, and you might also want to check out the video with building instructions”
