Having a deep voice really helps, as I've experienced in school. It's been useful to my classmates that I have a deep voice and they always want me to be in their group during group activities that involve reporting. The group that I joined would always get a high grade because one of the criteria for which our teacher gives credit is the clearness of the voice of the reporter.

Have you ever wondered why some people have that kind of voice and others don't (and maybe that "others" includes you)? It's because one's voice is mostly acquired from one's parents, which means a deep voice is innate. Not all of us are gifted by having a deep voice.

However, though these ideas may discourage those who don't already have a deep voice, there's still hope for them. Because, as the knowledge of man has risen, many mysteries have been revealed and questions have been answered. And luckily, one of the answered questions is this: What can I do to make my voice deeper? For sure, many people are seeking for the answer to this question.

And the answer to these questions are now very accessible through the Internet. This means that if we were just determined to pursue our objective of having a deep voice we would really achieve it. Though finding instructions and information about deepening your voice is very easy, in contrary, applying the searched information is the hard part of the quest.

As the saying goes, "If there's a will there's a way." In your objective of deepening your voice there are lots of ways. Here are some of the ways to deepen the voice:

1. Start with breathing exercises. Take slow, deep breaths that use all of your lungs and force the diaphragm to control the amount of breath exhaled. This is the correct breathing method for singing.

2. Keep a good posture. This includes keeping your head up, chin level, knees loose, shoulders back, muscles relaxed and body weight on the heels of your feet

3. Stretch your mouth muscles by mouthing the five vowel sounds without singing.

4. Recite tongue twisters. Start them off slowly and build up to loosen your tongue and vocal chords.

5. Sing short one-syllable notes repeatedly such as "ha" and "ho" (called staccato notes). Remember to project from the diaphragm and not force the breaths out. This is what you should focus on in these voice exercises.

6. Sing one note and hold it as long as you can to determine how long you can hold a note in one breath. Also, build the note's scale up and down (called singing an arpeggio) to get a feel for every pitch.

7. Recite notes that focus on the vowel sounds as well as the do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do scale. Change the vowel or consonant sounds every two or three times.

These exercises will help your voice become more developed and more resonant. There are many other things you can do to deepen your voice. It's easy to find, if you're determined to do it.
