How To Strengthen Your Voice – With Video

How would you like to learn how to strengthen your voice and improve it’s overall tone and resonance?

The good news is that there are some rather simple exercises that you can perform daily that I will outline below.  These exercises are quite simple, and can really make your voice sound much stronger and more powerful. Also be sure to watch the video below with tips from a real voice coach.

Voice Strength Tip #1:  Breathing Control

In order to speak properly you need to learn how to control your breathing.  One of the most important factors that will help you strengthen your voice is learning how to speak from the diaphragm.  Focus on using the diaphragm muscles to help project the sound of your voice as opposed to your lungs.

Voice Strength Tip #2:  Volume Control

A stronger voice does not mean that you should go around yelling.  Keep the volume of your voice at an acceptable level.  If you speak too loudly, tone down.  If too softly, focus on proper breathing and speaking from the diaphragm.

Voice Strength Tip #3:  Pitch Variation

Try not to speak in a monotone.  Using your entire vocal range ads interest and personality to your voice.  To work on improving the pitch of your voice, try making “siren sounds” using different notes.

Voice Strength Tip #4:  Articulation

A strong voice requires clear precise articulation.  Your words should sound clean and not forced.  In order to improve how you articulate your words, be sure to use your facial muscles when you speak.

Other ways to improve articulation:

  • Dropping the jaw
  • Emphasizing vowels in words
  • Emphasizing consonants at the end of certain words

Voice Strength Tip #5:  Voice Quality

Voice quality is how pleasing your voice is to listen to.  What you are aiming for is a clean, “rich” sounding voice.  To maximize voice quality, work on breathing and try to place the sound in your inner mouth area as opposed to your throat or nose.  One good way to practice is to hum with your mouth closed and teeth slightly apart.  If you feel a “buzz” on the front of your face then you know you are doing it right.

Manly Voice – How to Make Your Voice Sound More Manly

There are many benefits to having a more manly voice.  In my mind, the biggest benefit to having a manly sounding voice is that it makes you a much more confident person.  Not only will you feel more confident when speaking on the telephone, you will also feel much more confident in any social situation.

This is especially true if your voice is currently high, or cracks when you speak.  Quite honestly, you will feel like a whole new man by making your voice deeper.

How do I Make my Voice Sound More Manly?

If you were not born with a manly voice, unfortunately you will never sound like Barry White or Don Lafontaine.  With that being said, you can substantially improve your voice and make it sound much more manly.

Below are ways that you can experiment with to help you achieve a more manly voice:

  1. Strengthen the vocal chords – The vocal chords are just like any other muscle in your body.  If you condition them properly, your voice can improve dramatically.
  2. Voice Lowering Exercises – Here is a cool voice lowering exercise.  Give it a shot, I think you will be impressed at how quickly it works.
  3. Voice lowering surgery – Certainly not an option for everyone, but the odd person may require it.  Consider this a last resort.

What is the Best Way to Make Your Voice More Manly?

I think the best way to make your voice sound more manly would be to consult a voice coach.  The problem is that this is not an option for most people, since they can charge up to $100 per hour.

Fortunately there is an alternative to one-on-one voice coaching.  It’s a voice lowering program called “Deep Voice Mastery”, by Rudy Haynes.  It’s currently the only program of it’s kind on the market, and has been getting rave reviews from readers of this site.
