2020 Student Research Conference:
33rd Annual Student Research Conference

Training Program Addressing Glottal Fry Severity and Vocal Self-Perception

Thea S. Cornwell
Dr. Amy Teten, Faculty Mentor

The purpose of this research was to determine if a vocal training program would impact female college-aged students’ severity of glottal fry and their vocal self-perception. If so, how are these factors impacted? These questions were addressed by comparing the participants’ glottal fry severities and surveys regarding vocal self-perception before and after a vocal training program. The training program consisted of 6 weekly group sessions where the researcher provided education regarding the glottal fry, the perception of glottal fry, and the implementation of Voice Facilitating Therapy Approaches.  The participants were asked to complete the approaches at least twice a week for 10 minutes outside of weekly sessions.  The participants then read the passage and were scored for glottal fry severity and completed the vocal self-perception survey again. Data analysis was not available prior to the submission deadline but will be completed before the conference.
