Changing a naturally soft voice to that dreamy deep baritone may sound almost impossible but, you can make it full-toned and stronger, which will make you more authoritative and poised.
Know Your Voice
It is imperative that you understand your voice. The quality of your voice depends on the thickness of your vocal chords. Thicker muscles will give you a deeper voice, while smaller, shorter muscles will lead to a shriller voice. You can record your voice and listen to it to understand how you actually sound.
Project Your Voice from the Mask and Not from Your Nose
The voice comes out to be shrill and high if you use your nose too much. Try speaking by using your mask which includes the throat, lips, and bridge.
There is a direct correlation between how you breathe and how you sound. The common mistake that we commit is that we raise our shoulders and breathe with our chest. Ensure that you are breathing with your diaphragm by bringing your stomach in and out while inhaling and exhaling respectively.
How to Deepen Your Voice through Exercise
You can do the exercise by lying down on the ground and breathing in the correct way. Increase the weight on your stomach so that the lower-abdomen breathing improves.
Practise saying “hmm” by touching your chin on the chest, and then by raising your head towards the ceiling. Keep on doing this till you find your optimal tone. Now, use this masculine voice while speaking.
Relax the Throat Muscles
While speaking, don’t overstress your throat muscles in an attempt to create a deep sounding voice. On the contrary, rest them and speak slowly. The art of clear articulation and the ability to control your intonation will make you voice sound better.
Gas that Makes Your Voice Deeper
Inhaling Sulphur Hexafluoride may help instantly, but temporarily. It is six times heavier than air, so it will pass through the vocal chords a lot slower making a low pitch voice sound deeper.
Do not try to lower your voice artificially, as it can cause damage to your vocal chords. You can tweak the tone of your voice a bit through exercise and training but changing it is impossible. So be happy with what you have and concentrate more on having clarity in your speech.
