Im a 32 year old straight male from Chicago, Illinois. Im not a doctor or voice specialist Im simply a normal guy who was sick of his pathetic high pitched voice, but decided to do something about it. And I did! I was probably in the exact same situation as your currently are, and I decided that I wasnt going to let it ruing my life any longer. Now I want to share what I learned with you, so you dont have to suffer any longer. I am going to tell you all of the exact techniques I used towww.deepvoicemastery.com3transform my voice, and am confident that if you follow them diligently you will be amazed at the results. Now here is a little more about my story Growing up, I was always teased. Perhaps it was the combination of my scrawny body, or my meager highpitched voice. It never really bothered me until I hit puberty, because I had a couple of good buddies throughout high school my problem was with the ladies. There was this one girl, though, let's call her "Courtney," and for some wild reason, she took a liking towards me in my senior year. I don't know if it was because she pitied me for being the kid in Mr. Czudner's math class who constantly had spit balls blown at the back of his head with a straw, but the day Courtney sat behind me, was the day God answered my prayers. Sort of... Courtney and I started talking, and eventually she asked me if I could tutor her in algebra. I really got to know her when she started periodically calling me whenever her and her boyfriend were in argument. We'd talk for hours on end.www.deepvoicemastery.com4When she and her boyfriend broke up during the springtime, my buddy Carl managed to convince me to work up the courage to ask her to prom. He used the reasoning that if I didn't ask, I'd always regret it, and I would never get laid, which I guess, in retrospect, was pretty good reasoning. So Courtney said yes, and I thought, "Sweet. Maybe this chick actually digs me!" Oh, and she liked me, alright like a brother. That's probably the worst compliment you can get from a girl you're crushing on. When I finally grew the guts to kiss her at the end of the night, she was literally appalled. But here's the best part: she thought I was gay. Gay. I was shocked and humiliated. I mustered up the words to ask her why, and she said something along the lines of, "You sort of talk like you are... your voice is really high-pitched." And there it is. My breakthrough. A blessing in disguise. That summer before I took off for college, I knew I had to make a change. I wanted a deeper voice. Someone had suggested performing certain neck and voice exercises in order to achieve a deeper voice. After a few dayswww.deepvoicemastery.com5of exercising my neck muscles, my neck looked noticeably thicker. I always thought I had a bad case of pencil neck, so a thicker neck boosted my self-confidence and gave me the motivation I needed to work on the rest of my body. After about a week, I woke up to a nice, deep, masculine voice one morning. My voice felt powerful, and nearly lasted all day, until my old, squeaky voice crept back throughout the evening. By day's end, my voice was disappointingly back to normal. Nevertheless, I kept up the exercises and about two days later, the deep, crisp voice returned. I was determined to keep the depth this time, so I used my voice sparingly. It held. I was careful at first. I was conscious of my posture, and talked with a measured response around people until my deep voice became second nature. I practiced everyday, morning and night talking to myself in a deep, loud voice while shaving, getting dressed, making food, and so on. Remembering to keep good posture really aided the transition from my high-pitched, squeaky voice to my new deep, masculine voice. It was a constant cue in my memorywww.deepvoicemastery.com6to access the low voice that I desired and had perfected through much practice. If you can relate to my experience, you too, can have a deeper voice. There is hope. I can guarantee you that if you do the exercises outlined in this ebook, drink plenty of water, and practice, your body will learn to adapt to a deeper voice. My deep voice gave me the confidence I needed. I went off to college as a man, not the boy I once was, and let me tell you my new found confidence and hard work paid off in the female department.2 - Introduction What defines a man? (Aside from the biological factor thats not much of a secret)www.deepvoicemastery.com7In todays society, being a man can be tough. The web of stereotypes the media has sewn has clouded society, and the pressures of the past and present have collided, blurring our view of masculinity. Nowadays, it is not unusual to have a man stay at home while his wife goes off to work, or to come across a man that enjoys being in the kitchen; some professions are no longer female dominated, such as teachers and nurses. But with no clear definition of masculinity, the only characteristics that define a man are physical attributes characteristics that not all men are blessed with due to a little thing we call genetics. You wish you were a little bit taller. You wish your physique were more toned and muscular. You wish your voice were deeper. This is where the media has constructed a physical fallacy of the ideal male. You may not be able to change your height, or your bone structure, but there is one thing you can change, and that is your voice. For whatever reason, whether youre trying to attract the woman of your dreams, or impress a boss at work a deep voice can help you achieve your goal. Because if you can deliver a deep, clear, masculine voice, you may not need to worry about all thewww.deepvoicemastery.com8other expectations that are placed on the male gender. If you can talk the talk, you can walk the walk.3 - Anatomy A weak voice is not the result of a small voice box, or tiny vocal chords. The vocal chords are a muscle group, and like any other muscle in our body, they have the ability to stretch, grow and strengthen. The vocal chords are responsible for the tone and pitch a person speaks. They form the raw sound, while the mouth and tongue form each specific word. Conditioning the vocal chords to become relaxed and supple is the secret to getting the deep, masculine voice that youve always wanted. If your voice box is stressed, the muscles are too tight causing your voice to have a higher pitch. The key is to trainwww.deepvoicemastery.com9your vocal chords to be loose and supple, in order to produce lower and deeper tones. Try it yourself: Create a humming sound. Notice the sound change as you tilt your head up, and then tilt it down with your chin close to your chest. The results indicate that as you tilt your head up, the humming has a higher pitch, and once you tilt your head down, the humming has a much lower sound. The reasoning is simple: when you tilt your head up, you are stretching the vocal chords, tightening them. This test proves that if your vocal chords are tight, they cannot produce a deep, low voice.KeyPoints: The vocal chords are a muscle group that is responsible for the pitch and tone of our voice. When vocal chords are tense, they will produce a voice with a higher pitch. In order to produce a deep, low, masculine voice, the vocal chords must be relaxed and limber.www.deepvoicemastery.com104 - How to Achieve a Deep Voice: Step 1 Heres the meat of it people what you really want to hear, so pay close attention. Here we go What happens when we develop and tone a muscle? Thats right, the muscle itself becomes thicker and enlarged. A strong muscle is able to do more work with less effort. If we strengthen our neck muscles, the vocal chords are able to relax within the toned group of muscles, holding up our neck and head.www.deepvoicemastery.com11As an example, a pot belly occurs when the abdominal wall is not strong enough to hold in your stomach. In order to get rid of it, you have to strengthen the abdominal muscles. Lets say you did sit-ups everyday for one month you would definitely have more defined, toned abs as a result. Even if you still have a layer of fat covering your abs, and you cant see the definition, you will notice when your stomach is relaxed, that your potbelly is gone. This is because the toned abdominals are holding their shape, resisting the push of your organs even when relaxed. The abdominals are thicker, and you no longer need to consciously tense them. The sternocleidomastoids are the neck muscles that will strengthen and enlarge as a result of the following exercises.www.deepvoicemastery.com12By performing these exercises, you will achieve a deeper voice in a matter of days. On your bed, lay vertically on your back with your head and shoulders hanging off the edge. Tilt your head back and forth, up and down, tensing your neck muscles with each movement. Hold your head in each position for 10 seconds, and slowly release your head back to its original position. Repeat each of these movements 15 times, or until you can feel a burn in your neck. Switch sides, and repeat. Do 3-5 sets 3 times a day.www.deepvoicemastery.com13 Make sure to really tense your muscles as you perform each movement. Below is a chart that outlines the best exercises to help strengthen the neck muscles: ExerciseNeck Lateral ResistanceMuscles WorkedWorks all neck lateral neck musclesExecutionHold one hand against the side of your head. Use your hand to resist the movement as you try to touch your shoulder with your ear. Hold this posture for a count of 5.Neck Rotational ResistanceWorks all neck musclesHold one hand against the side of your head. Use your hand to resist the movement as you try to rotate your head to one side until your chin is lined on top of your shoulder. Hold this posture for a count of 5.Neck Forward ResistanceWorks all anterior neck musclesHold both hands against your forehead. Try to move head forward, but resist the movement with your hands. Hold this posture for a count of 5.Neck Backward ResistanceWorks all posterior neck muscles.Place both hands behind your head. Try to move head backwards, but resist the movement with your hands. Don't tip chin. Hold this posture for awww.deepvoicemastery.com14count of 5.You will be amazed at how well your muscles respond in size and tension. In just a short time, you will have a deeper voice. You will need to maintain this change in order to make it permanent, but not as often as at first. Step 2: HYDRATION The next step in keeping your voice box supple is to drink plenty of water at least 2 liters a day. Why? Because when your body is dehydrated, your muscles shrink. By day 4 or 5, you will have the necessary muscle tone to maintain a comfortable posture without your muscles havingwww.deepvoicemastery.com15to work. Your muscles will no longer be stressed and tense, instead, they will begin to loosen up, and you will notice your voice start to lower. Step 3: REST You need to expose your vocal chords to an extended period of rest. Even people with high-pitched, squeaky voices, will wake up in the morning with a deeper, raspier voice. The reason behind this is because the vocal chords were exposed to a restful night of sleep, whereby they lost the usually present tension due to inactivity. Eventually, once your neck muscles have reached a point that they are strong enough to solely hold your head up, the vocal chords will be exposed to the same relaxed environment that a good nights sleep often gives, because they will not be working as hard. This will give you a permanent rasp in your voice.www.deepvoicemastery.com16KeyPoints: Do 3-5 sets of exercises at least 3 times a day. While performing exercises, keep your neck muscles tense. This will maximize your muscles potential strength. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Make sure to get plenty of rest, so that your muscles are able to recover and regain strength.5 - Training Your Voice After a few days of performing the exercises listed above, as well as drinking a consistent amount of water and getting plenty of rest, you will be well on your way to having a deeper voice.www.deepvoicemastery.com17Now, you have to train yourself to find the right pitch. Just as singers have to practice and train their voice, you too need to practice the tone of your voice. Try it yourself: Begin to hum slowly in a low tone. Gradually lower and deepen your hum by tilting your head close to your chest until you are no longer humming fluidly, but rather your hums are sounding one increment at a time. By training your voice, you are essentially creating a memory in your brain. This is a crucial step, as you will consciously start to find that tone of voice when speaking socially. Here is another cool exercise to try, that really works: http://deepvoicemastery.com/members/?p=71 (youll need your unique username and password that was provided to you during sign-up). Eventually, it just becomes a habit that you develop until your voice begins to respond permanently to the training. Awww.deepvoicemastery.com18new habit takes at least 21 days to form. Practicing the tone of your voice by performing exercises and speaking aloud in your own privacy is the way to create the deep voice that you desire. In my personal experience, I began my practicing with my humming, in deep, slow, incremental tones. After I found my the level of deepness that suited me, I started using my voice, and talking aloud to myself. Now, this may sound ridiculous, but heres my tip to you: during your daily morning or nightly routine, talk aloud to yourself while looking at your reflection in the mirror. My newfound deep voice increased my self-image. I began thinking positively, and verbally reinforced myself in my convincing, deep voice. Last, comes the unsettling part making the link to speaking deeply in a social environment. Heres what you have to do: You know that tone that you practiced and perfected while in the comfort of your own home? That deep, smooth, masculine voice that sent shivers down your spine and (lets be honest) shot your self-esteem up like gas prices?www.deepvoicemastery.com19Well, what youve done with that voice is youve created a place in your brain where the memories of your practicing is stored. Now you must learn how to zone in on that place, that happy memory in your brain, when youre in a social or work environment. Eventually your body will begin to learn to alter your vocal chords as your brain links the positive memories of your deep voice with social and work environments. By learning how to access these new memories youve created through practice in privacy, this place in your brain will naturally dominate when in a social environment.KeyPoints: Start your training by humming in low tones and finding the tone that is right for you. Gradually begin talking to yourself aloud in the comfort of your own home, where you can practice and perfect your deep voice. This creates a memory in your brain that you will focus on while in social situations.www.deepvoicemastery.com20 Eventually, a habit is formed, and your brain will learn to subconsciously zone in on your practiced memory when speaking in public.6 Vocal Awareness Posture is one of the most important factors to bear in my mind when speaking in public. Posture is directly linked to voice resonance, physically, but more importantly, emotionally. Have you ever noticed a friend's posture when they're in a bad mood? Often their posture is hunched over - their body language indicating that they're upset. Practicing proper posture will act as a catalyst in successfully developing your deep voice. While practicing, remember towww.deepvoicemastery.com21stand tall and straight. What this will do is give your body a cue when youre in social environment, because your brain will associate that new posture with your practice memories. Having good posture will also help you decrease any anxiety you may have when speaking in public. Perhaps youre trying to talk to a woman youve been lusting after, or youre preparing for a presentation at work in any case, standing tall and straight will give you an air of confidence, and will help you breathe deeply, which will in turn relax your vocal chords and reduce anxiety. Here are a couple more tips to ensure that your hard practice pays off: The angle of your head should be level when you are about to speak neither lowered to your chest, nor raised, causing the vocal chords to stretch. Try talking more quietly and carefully as you adjust to your new voice. This will keep you relaxed while you make a conscious effort, and it will also train your body to access your practiced memories during socialwww.deepvoicemastery.com22situations.KeyPoints: Practice good posture. This means standing tall with your shoulders straight and your head level. Proper posture will give you confidence, reduce anxiety, and relax your vocal chords, maximizing your deep voice. Until you are comfortable and confident with your new voice, make a conscious effort to speak quietly and carefully, as this will cue your brain to access your trained voice and the body language that accompanies this memory. Keep in mind that this will take time and repetition in order to become a natural, subconscious habit.www.deepvoicemastery.com237 Voice Care When it comes to having a crisp, clear voice, most of us do not really observe good voice care measures on a daily basis. In fact, we would not give a second thought to eating certain foods or taking alcohol or caffeinated drinks regularly. Below I will outline some important voice care tips, that will help you maximize the depth and crispness of your voice, and minimize vocal chord damage that will eventually cause your voice to deteriorate. Here are the general guidelines that we can follow to take care of our voice: 1. Maintain Good Posture and Proper Breathing Control When Speaking Maintain an upright neutral position with your entire body, as well as your head and neck. Make sure you breath properly.www.deepvoicemastery.com24Be sure to tighten up your abdominals and push the air out of your mouth with your diaphragm for powerful projection. Your chin should not be too high, or too low. 2. Regular Exercise & a Healthy Diet This applies to our voice care and also to our body in general. Achieving a level of optimal health is very beneficial to maximizing the potential of your voice. This is because when our bodies fall ill, we may feel fatigue, experience congestion, soar throats, or may not even practice proper vocal technique when speaking. This in turn will cause unnecessary damage to our voices, and we would do well to keep ourselves healthy so that our voices will be healthy as well. 3. Keep Your Neck, Jaw & Face Relaxed When Speaking When we speak, we control our breath using the diaphragm and the other surrounding abdominal and intercostal muscles. Our voice is controlled with our vocal cords, and supporting muscles. Its important not too involve other muscle groups when we want to maximize the depth of our voice (such as the neck, jaw and facial muscles). Doing so will affect the sound of or voice by increasing the amount ofwww.deepvoicemastery.com25tension in our throats and in our vocal cords, making the voice sound higher and less clear. 4. Reduce Speaking Time in Noisy Environments When we are in extremely noisy environments that cause us to yell or shout for extended periods of time, we put unnecessary strain on our voices. This strain will (over time) actually damage the vocal cords. Simply put, try not to yell too much as it is very likely to damage your vocal cords and possibly hinder the sound of your voice. 5. Considerations for Medication The use of certain medications can affect your voice negatively. The following meds can cause dryness in our voice, making us sound crackly and squeaky: Anti-histamines Decongestants Anti-depressants Also be particularly careful with over-the-counter local anaesthetic medication for the throat. This medication can reduce nerve sensitivity in the throat, and create numbness,www.deepvoicemastery.com26making our voice more susceptible to damage. This is because we are unable to feel our voice as usual.*Tip If you suffer form acid reflux, be sure to take antacids. If you dont, the acid can damage the throat tissues (including the vocal cords) and cause permanent damage.www.deepvoicemastery.com278 - Testosterone Buccal Testosterone Buccal is a method commonly used by men who do not produce enough testosterone naturally. The hormone itself is produced by your body and is one of the main contributing factors when determining the growth and development levels of certain male characteristics. You can view a video of a voice before and after testosterone treatment by following this link to the members area: http://deepvoicemastery.com/members/?p=98 (you will have to login to the page using the user name and password that was provided to you during sign-up). If you are someone with lower than normal levels of testosterone (can be determined by a medical doctor), then you may experience some of the following symptoms: High Pitched Voice Decreasing Levels of Muscle Depression Lack of Energy Lathargica (sleepy sickness)www.deepvoicemastery.com28 Low Sex Drive & Functionality If you feel like the above symptoms describe you, then you may want to consult your family doctor in regards to possible Testosterone Buccal systems. However, if your voice is simply high pitched and you're not experiencing the other listed symptoms, then the chances are, you just need to train your voice using our proven system rather than "fixing something that's not broken". Testosterone Buccal is a pretty big commitment if you're going to take it properly. With normal pills or injections you would take a tablet every so often and forget about it until your next dose. With Testosterone Buccal however, you must place the tablet in between your upper gum and lip once, every 12 hours in most cases. The tablet will not fully dissolve so therefore, you must be conscious at all times of any snacking, eating, tobacco chewing, or other activities that may interfere with the placement of the medication. Upon doing some research I have discovered the following most common side effects that can accompany Testosterone Buccal:www.deepvoicemastery.com29 Irritation, Redness, Pain, Tenderness, Swelling, Toughening, or Blistering of Gums Stinging of Lips Toothache Unpleasant or Bitter Taste in Mouth Difficulty Tasting Food Headache Stomach Pain or Cramps Acne Nervousness Swelling of Nose Through extensive medical research, Testosterone Buccal tablets have not shown any proof of causing liver damage or liver cancer because of the way they are absorbed into the body. However, prolonged use of synthetic Testosterone has been proven to cause other serious medical issues such as prostate cancer, therefore, it is highly recommended that you speak one on one with your doctor before committing to any sort of drastic hormone treatment.www.deepvoicemastery.com309 - Thyroplasty For more serious cases of a failing masculine voice box, surgery may be required. If you have extremely weak vocal chords, or have damaged your vocal chords somehow, then you might consider looking into this type of surgery. You can watch a video that explains how the surgery is performed in the members area. Here is the direct link to the video: http://deepvoicemastery.com/members/?p=90 (you will need your login information in order to access the link) Thyroplasty, also known as Laryngeal Framework Surgery, is the most becoming type of voice altering surgery, which is available to anyone willing to spend up to $5,000 USD.www.deepvoicemastery.com31The name of the surgery is self explanatory laryngeal framework. This basically means your larynx cartilage and vocal folds (vocal chords) are very strategically repositioned in order to permanently change the sound of your voice. The surgery itself is performed within approximately 1-2 hours with a 'next day' release. It involves a simple incision close to your larynx, which allows for a small chunk of thyroid being removed and then replaced with a small piece of plastic. When the surgery is performed, you (the patient) are put under local anesthetic; however you're never fully asleep because you need to test the outcome of your voice throughout the surgery. The piece of plastic is manipulated until your desired sound is reached. Post Operation There are few side effects with the Laryngeal Framework Surgery. You're not supposed to speak in extreme tones, such as yelling or whispering after the surgery. Otherwise, the most common side effects are simply swelling, and discomfort... oh, and debt!www.deepvoicemastery.com32Personally, I wasn't even aware of the fact that I could get voice surgery prior to my natural voice training, but now that I've reached the results that I set out for, I couldn't be happier that I didn't wimp out and spend the $5,000 on the procedure. You're probably wondering "why?" and the reason is simple the time and effort I spent training my voice was a real growth experience for me. I gained a little more confidence in myself with each leap in progress. Even when I was testing different methods of voice training that didn't work, I didn't get discouraged, instead, I slowly began to accept myself for who I am. In the past, I wouldve normally been frustrated or disappointed with my failed practices, but instead, my confidence grew, and so did the strength of my voice. My voice is now stronger and more confident than ever before! 10 - Conclusion Im really confident that if you follow all of the informationwww.deepvoicemastery.com33Ive outlined in this ebook you will see fantastic results just like I did.
