If you’ve ever watched a performance of a singing competition and found yourself rooting for the person with the deeper voice, you’re not alone. There’s just something about hearing a low-pitched speaker that makes them seem more trustworthy, confident, or intelligent. With the right techniques and adjustments to your natural speaking voice, you can increase its depth. Whether you need to disguise your voice for a prank or are simply interested in trying something new, following these steps will help you achieve a deeper voice.
How To Make Voice Sound Deeper
The first step is to get your hands on some good headphones. If you’re going to be working on your voice, it’s best to be able to focus solely on the sound while blocking out distractions. Headphones allow you to do just that without disturbing others in the room.
2. Practice Speaking In A Lower Pitch
If you haven’t done any vocal training before, it will take a lot of practice to master the lower pitch of a deeper voice. Start by speaking normally and then gradually begin lowering the pitch of each word until you reach your desired tone. This can take several weeks or even months depending on how much time you have and how dedicated you are to your practice sessions. However, if you want to sing, don’t worry; this process will make singing much easier later in this guide!
3. Find The Right Volume For Your Voice
Volume is one of the most critical aspects of making your voice deeper. First, it’s important to determine how low you want to go. This can be done by finding the lowest note you can comfortably sing or speaking with a friend and then both of you singing the same pitches until you find one that sounds best.
4. Practice Speaking At Different Pitches
While you’re practicing speaking in a lower pitch, it’s also important to practice at different pitches to help you adjust your voice to the lower pitch. After finding the lowest note you can comfortably speak, work your way up in pitches until you find something that sounds best. This will help prevent issues with your vocal folds when trying to go deeper.
5. Use Your Nose To Boost Your Voice
The next step is to find a way to boost the volume of your voice without needing to raise the pitch at all. One of the most effective ways is by using your nose; however, it does require some practice and patience as well as some plastic surgery on your nose if necessary! First, make sure that there’s nothing in the way between your nostrils and mouth when speaking or singing. Then close one nostril while breathing through both with a little bit of air squeezed out of each side so that they do the pitch you can achieve, practice speaking at different pitches until you find one that’s comfortable.
5. Use Your Lips To Make Your Voice Sound Lower
Lips are the most important part of your voice and can make a huge difference in how deep your voice sounds. Simply by pursing your lips, you can make your voice sound deeper without changing the pitch of your words. This method is perfect for when you’re trying to disguise your voice or to give a low-pitched performance in a competition or speech.
Practice Resonance And Breath Support
1. Respiration is key to deepening your voice. It’s a good idea to start by practicing the “rapping” technique, which can be done by taking long, deep breaths and then letting them out in a quick, rhythmic manner.
2. As you breathe in, try to make your chest rise; as you breathe out, try to make it fall. This will help you achieve resonance and add depth to your voice.
3. Practice taking long breaths from the bottom of your stomach and then exhaling through the mouth slowly and without making any noise whatsoever; this will help with breath support (the ability to hold the sound of a note or phrase longer). Take it slowly at first until you get used to it.
Learn Your Vocal Range
1. Read a page of text out loud, recording yourself.
2. Listen to your recording and check to see if you’re hitting all the notes correctly.
3. Once you have a good idea of the pitch range that you can produce, go to step 4.
4. Find a singer whose voice sounds similar to yours and listen to them sing or read aloud in a pitch range that is within one octave of your own pitch range.
5. Now, listen to the singer and try mimicking their pitch range by singing or reading out loud in that same range as well. If it feels natural, then congratulations! Your voice is now in tune with your vocal range!
Drink More Water
1. Drink water throughout the day.
2. When you’re thirsty, drink water rather than soda.
3. Make sure you don’t drink too much water at once though, as it can irritate your throat.
4. Drink water when you wake up, during the afternoon, and before going to sleep at night.
5. Water is important for your body’s detoxification process, so make sure that you include plenty of it in your diet when trying to make your voice sound deeper in tone.
Warm Up Your Voice Before You Start Talking
1. Speak in a normal, conversational tone.
2. Breathe in and out slowly, taking approximately eight seconds to breathe in and sixteen seconds to breathe out.
3. Relax your mouth and jaw. Maintain a relaxed smile as you speak.
4. Talk more slowly than usual, but don’t talk any slower than you normally would when speaking normally, just as you would when you’re singing or practicing a song on the piano or guitar. Don’t rush through any words or sentences; take your time and keep the pace at the same level as normal conversation.
Voice Modification Techniques
1. Deep Breathing
Deep breathing is an effective technique to add depth to your voice. Deep breathing means taking long, deep breaths from your diaphragm, rather than from your chest or throat. This will help you project a deeper voice. Try it out!
2. Vocal Exercises
Vocal exercises can also help deepen your voice, so long as you’re not doing them for the sake of sounding deeper. For example, if you’re singing a song with lyrics that demand a very high note, don’t try to sing in a lower tone just because you want to sound deeper; instead, start with the high notes and work down from there. You can also try experimenting with different types of pitches and tones by using different vocal ranges. For instance, if you struggle with singing in falsetto (a high pitch), try taking on songs that require a higher range and sing in more of an alto or mezzo-soprano range.
3. Adjust Your Speaking Voice
Adjusting your speaking voice is a good way to deepen it, too! Try using more of the muscles in your face and throat as you speak, which will help you project a deeper tone. If you’re having trouble with this, try taking on a role-playing game like Dungeons and Dragons to practice projecting your voice onto other characters’ voices.
4. Throat Exercises
Throat exercises are another technique for deepening your voice. Try swallowing before speaking or speaking with a lighter tone of breath than usual; this will help you project a deeper sound. You can also try straining while speaking or yawning non-stop for five minutes before going on stage to give yourself enough time to adjust from being awake all night to being tired enough so that you can project more easily without sounding sleepy.
Making your voice deeper can be a great way to assert dominance, sound more confident, and project an image of authority. By following the steps outlined in this post, you can start training your vocal cords to produce a lower, richer tone that will serve you well in both your personal and professional life.
