Listeners perceive the low tone of voice as more pleasant, and its owners unknowingly attribute confidence, attractiveness and self-sufficiency. Holders of velvet timbre make a favorable impression on the opposite sex, colleagues and partners. That is why many students of our school of oratory skills strive to make the timbre lower and coarser. There is another reason to think about lowering the timbre: a high voice quickly tires listeners. If a velvet contralto or baritone can be listened to for hours, it is physically difficult to withstand a squealing or falsetto speech. High timbre is often perceived as a sign of self-confidence, constriction and immaturity. And there is a bit of truth in it: when we are tense, nervous, the vocal apparatus “clamps” and speech sounds higher. When we are relaxed and calm, the tone unwittingly drops. The low timbre is a wand for speakers who stutter with excitement. The ability to intimately lower the tone of speech serves as a safety valve: in this register people are less likely to stutter. But is it possible to change congenital voice data? Of course, we teach it in our school, and we are ready to share recommendations on how to make speech velvet and pleasant. The secret is that the sound of speech depends on many factors, and innate features are only one of them.
How to make a voice below a girl
Female voice is known to be higher than male voice, so ladies do not face the stereotype that high timbre sounds not enough “feminine” (while one of the popular requests from men – to make speech “more masculine”). Nevertheless, tempting is commonly referred to as the velvet and deep timbre, and women are more likely than men to risk slipping into speech at falsetto. This problem has several solutions. To begin with, girls need to eliminate possible physiological causes of too high, squeaky modulations. These can be respiratory diseases, as well as general stiffness, stiffness during public speaking. Often during classes at our school, female students start speaking involuntarily below, and their speech becomes more expressive and deeper when we manage to overcome the fear of speaking. In addition, I recommend a few exercises aimed at broadening the range and mastering their own voice as follows
with a tool. Of course, physiology dictates its own characteristics, so it is unlikely to be able to teach a woman-soprano constantly speak in baritone tonality, but it is nice to reduce the timbre – quite real.
Snarling. Start growling gently at the lowest note that you can take, and, holding it for a while, gradually increase the tone – to the highest growl. Then lower the tone again. Make a few such cycles. Warning! The vocal cords should not overstress or get tired in the process.
Low “and”. Often at the level of reflexes we lower and raise the timbre when we lower or raise our head. This is noticeable if we watch the singers: during the lowering of the range many unknowingly lower the head. This exercise is aimed at overcoming this habit. Tilt your head and pull the “and” sound as low as possible. Then gently raise your head while holding the tone. Ligaments do not strain! This is important, otherwise you risk ruining your voice. Repeat the exercise until you can hold the tone freely by moving your head.
Singing in a lower range. This is one of the most effective exercises, but it is important to make sure that the ligaments are not overstressed. Sing the “a” sound for 5 minutes as bassily as possible. Try to lower the timbre by half a tone every day. It also helps to achieve the desired effect by working together on articulation, breathing and voice strength. Fruits only bring regular exercise, it is impossible to change the timbre in a few days. How to make a voice coarser man I give about the same advice as the ladies: make sure that the breathing apparatus is healthy, work on the articulation and breathing, try to cope with the excitement and internal clamps. You will then find that your speech sounds different and the timbre is “coarser”. Exercise will help to increase the effect:
Rehearsal the “g” sound. Technically, it is necessary to repeat the task with the sound “and”, but instead of it, clearly pull the “g”. Smoothly raise and lower your head, pulling the “g” in the maximum bass register. The register should not change during movement.
Find vocalists who sing as low as possible. Humble, repeat their manner, but do not overstress the ligaments! All exercises are performed on relaxed ligaments, there should be no pain or tension. You can take a few vocal lessons to master chest breathing – this type of breathing automatically lowers the timbre, so I teach it during the lessons of public speaking skills. Developing voice power One of the reasons for the tone being too high is the weak voice machine. If you try to speak louder, it’s probably your problem. In that case, the most effective way to solve the problem is to develop the strength of the voice machine. This task requires regular training under the guidance of an experienced teacher, but I will risk giving some recommendations for independent work: – Read aloud for a few hours a day. Watch your breathing and pace. Try to pronounce the text clearly and expressively, take your time. The more passageway you can pronounce on one breath, the better. Read slowly, and as soon as you feel that you are accelerating, slow down your speech. Let it seem even unnaturally slow, that’s normal. Laryngeal muscles should be relaxed at the same time. – Sing. Pull the “a” by gradually changing the volume. The vocal apparatus shouldn’t strain it. – Exercise or exercise, regular exercise improves voice data. How to make your voice coarser forever This will require thorough work with a speech therapist or speech therapist, oratory specialist. Regular exercise takes at least a month, and then the timbre will change naturally, your speech will be deeper and more expressive. You can achieve these results yourself. It’s complicated. But you can enroll in our public speaking school to give a speech. I will give you some general recommendations and exercises for your voice: – Keep an eye on the pace of your speech. The slower you speak, the more velvet your speech seems. – Breathe with your nose: Breathing through your nose helps to reduce the tone, so it is important to keep your breathing apparatus healthy. – Unwind your shoulders: a slouch, bent back and bent head increases the timbre. – Work with cursive phrases: they can be read with tone reduction and tone enhancement by training the range.
