How to make rocky deep voice as fast as possible

13 tips on how to explore the depth of your voice






Expressive deeper voice, more success?


More money, more attractiveness, dominance and influence? And all of this through a deep voice?

A deeper voice sounds more pleasant, sympathetic, and safer than a high one. It connects with other people, it appears more competent. What she conveys is not only beneficial in private life, but is also very useful in many other areas.

Deep voices are not only attractive, but should also make you successful. That sounds plausible, but is it also true? Anyone looking for evidence of this will find some clues on the Internet. Among them is a study (Voice pitch and the labor market success of male chief executive officers) by University of California at San Diego. According to her, men with lower voices run the larger companies and earn significantly higher annual incomes than others. Such corporate leaders are also in their position for much longer.

Hm, the thesis is not new. Deep voices are more likely to be heard. In particular, deep, sonorous male voices appear more balanced, self-confident and competent.




And with women?


Women with high, thin voices seem quite different; insecure, inferior or even incompetent. When female voices are led up, they tend to tip into the head voice: thin, squeaky, hectic. The audience has the impression of exaggerated emotionality.

A high-pitched little girl's voice conveys “I'm looking for a protector!” It speaks to the protective instinct. However, this does not necessarily have to be intentional, but it still has undesirable consequences if it is not in line with one's own understanding of one's role.

Listeners infer character traits from the voice, which is why actors, politicians and managers train their voices to present themselves in a positive light that corresponds to their own ideal. It is alleged, for example, that Prime Minister Margarete Thatcher worked hard on her voice. She is said to have permanently lowered her voice by more than half an octave with professional help. Low voices mean dominance and competence in perception, while high voices are often perceived as unpleasant.




Where to take and not to steal?


Grandmother, why do you have such a big mouth? The voice can be influenced; Even the bad wolf knew how to disguise his voice by taking chalk and thus deceive the seven little goats and finally Little Red Riding Hood.

In fact, hair-raising paths are sometimes used to force the voice to have more depth or even to strive for a grating voice. In the article Do you want a displaced voice? some of them are described.

I wouldn't go that far with my clients. Instead, it pays to find the individual indifference and learn to use it. Unfortunately, it is often forgotten that modulation with higher overtones is important even with low voices in order to have a sympathetic effect. In addition, the voice should match the personality.




13 tips for an expressive voice



1. Indifferent what?


The indifference is the pitch at which we can effortlessly speak for a long time. The vocal folds in the larynx are relaxed and vibrate evenly.

When you speak in your comfortable voice, you instill confidence in your listeners and convey a feeling of security. Your true vocal power lies in the pitch in which you can perceive the strongest vibrations for yourself!

Women in particular often speak clearly about their indifference. This is unnecessary and not very beneficial. With proper practice and a forceful manner of speaking, even high female voices can sound lower and deep female voices softer.

2. Self-confidence, inner balance


The more secure someone feels, the more relaxed and agile the organs of speech are, while insecurity leads to stress and a higher voice.




3. Muscle training


An expressive voice is not innate. If you want to sound good, you can do something about it. But in everyday life, bad habits often lead to our voices sounding thin, rough or shrill. What hinders deep breathing weakens the voice - poorly trained muscles do the rest.




4. Everyone can breathe, right?


In fact, few people use their breathing effectively. This is also a shame because relaxed full-body breathing helps improve the pitch of the voice.

When you are under stress, you breathe less and less, which also makes your voice more pressed and sounding higher. This can be avoided with the right breathing technique.

It is worth practicing deep diaphragmatic breathing. Here the air is not only transported into the chest, but also into the abdomen. The diaphragm is the engine of the voice. It pushes air evenly from the lungs into the windpipe. We can only form our voice in a relaxed manner in the larynx when it rises and falls easily. This means that more air is inhaled with little effort and we can speak louder and more clearly as a result. Although the motto “head up, chest out, stomach in” is so common, it is rather avoided and requires some getting used to to activate.

To exercise, stand up, cross your arms behind your head and breathe the air through your nose deep into your stomach so that the abdominal wall bulges outwards. Then pull it back in as you exhale. After a while, this form of breathing, if possible full-body breathing, will appear completely natural and relaxed.




5. A-r-t-i-k-u-l-a-t-i-o-n


Whoever emphasizes more clearly moves the lips more while speaking and brings the teeth apart. The voice becomes richer in expression.

Understandable and powerful speaking can be trained by addressing resistance. To speak with pebbles in your mouth or against the surf is said to have helped many famous speakers to be successful. Risks: swallowing and overexertion!

The classic exercise is sound formation with a cork. To do this, a cork is held with the front teeth while the person is speaking. For example, texts can be read out as expressively as possible.
Tongue twisters and singing - use the time in the car or in the shower - also help with training.

Mumbling usually has several causes such as speaking too quickly, too little air and a lack of sense of speaking.




6. Gestures


Gestures affect the way we speak. In this way, powerful gestures also encourage a powerful use of the voice.




7. Smile


Smiling promotes the production of happiness hormones and also has some other positive side effects, especially on the mirror neurons. Smiling also promotes overtones, and eye contact makes the voice more engaging.




8. Sets of arcs instead of sets of garlands


The so-called garland sentences sound like a never-ending list and tire listeners and speakers.

Better to speak in arcs. You raise your voice during a sentence and lower it at the end of the sentence. Your statements will sound livelier and clearer because it becomes clear when a thought is closed. And that conveys security and sovereignty.




9. Speech rate


A little momentum shows dynamism, sympathy and enthusiasm, too much speaking speed conveys insecurity, impatience, ignorance or even disinterest.

Don't just give the audience a chance to catch up, but also your voice. Increasing speaking speed not only appears rushed, it actually stresses and drives the voice pitch up. Short sentences make it easier for you and your audience.




10. Breaks


Breaks are one of the most important rhetorical tools. Breaks stand for thoughtfulness, discipline, self-confidence and consideration. In addition, pauses after each individual sentence give you enough time to formulate confidently. This avoids stress, which in turn would raise your voice.




11. Resonance instead of pressure


There are a number of ways in which the sound generated in the larynx can be fully developed. After all, the entire body can be used as a resonance space.

For example, buzzing and chewing regularly relaxes your vocal folds. After that, the voice sounds deeper.




12. Breast tone of conviction


Posture also has a big influence here. The voice can develop better in an upright, flexible and open posture.

Always stay relaxed! Make sure you maintain a relaxed, upright posture even when you are seated. Change your sitting position, stretch and loosen the muscles of your upper body every now and then. Tension builds up quickly, especially in the shoulder and neck area, and this affects the voice.




13. Still not enough?


Stay tuned, it's worth it. Voice training is noticeable in a positive way, promotes self-confidence, a stronger demeanor, greater persuasiveness as well as more competence and professionalism.
