We, humans, are such complex creatures that we have at least three types of voices, based on where we position it. Identifying them will allow you to understand what you might be doing wrong and why you’re looking for an answer to your “how to make your voice deeper” question. 

Because it might be just a matter of wrong positioning.

Head Voice

In general, the head voice is associated with higher pitches and notes. By using your head voice, you’re releasing strong, steady high-pitched qualities which, of course, make your voice sound anything but deep. 

So, how do you understand whether you use your head voice? Start talking and try to see if you feel some sort of vibration around your face and head area. Are you listening to your voice as if there was a speaker inside your head? If you answered “yes” to all of the above, then you’re using your head voice, but you need to stop.

To make your voice sound deeper, you need to start using your chest voice.

Chest Voice

Talking from your chest is, indeed, one of the most common ways of voice manipulation that people use without even noticing it. Put your hand on your chest, and emphatically say, “hey.” You will most likely feel a small vibration. This is your chest voice. A steady, low-pitched tone usually in the same range as your speaking voice that you can control through breathing. 

However, a chest voice isn’t always deep and it needs some practice which we’re going to talk about a little later.

Mixed Voice

With “mixed voice” we usually refer to the combination of head and chest voice, and it lies exactly on the spot where your voice shifts from your lower to upper range. This is great for signing (musical performers love it), but it has nothing to do with talking.

Now that you know the different places where your voice is produced, you need to practice the one that really matters and can get you a deeper voice. And this is no other than your chest voice.
