The Human Voice:
Our voice changes as we age. This is something we have all experienced. As we grow older our vocal muscles and structure change and develops. Additionally, these changes bring about changes in voice quality. Around the time of puberty, due to the hormonal changes, women’s and men’s voices seem to change. Usually, a woman’s voice remains the same at a high pitch. Further, for a man/ male child, the voice changes to a low pitch or a deep voice.
What happens when the male voice does not deepen?
As mentioned above, around puberty male pitch changes to a low pitch. Thus, this gives a deep voice quality to a man. But, for certain men, this change does not occur and it causes puberphonia or remains at a high pitch. Puberphonia is when a male voice sounds feminine due to the high pitch. Do you know someone with puberphonia or a high-pitched voice? Voice Therapy is the go-to solution to deepen your voice to achieve that low pitch.
