Anytime you are speaking or singing in front of the crowd, no matter the size, you want to be
sure that you are delivering clear sound in a proper tone. Public speaking or singing voices are

/edit

not something that we were all born with; many of us have to work at it. This guide will provide
you with a few solutions if you are wondering how to project your voice.

6 Tips to Help Project Your Voice


During inhalation, the diaphragm lowers and everything below it repositions to make room.
You want to either speak or sing with your diaphragm, therefore, it is necessary to avoid
breathing, instead take an inhalation that is deep and low.

1 Proper Breath Support


Taking proper deep breaths before each phrase supports your tone and increases your
volume by ten-fold. The idea of breath support is muscle antagonism, which means two
sets of opposing muscles working with each other. This requires a conscious effort to be
made as it means to project your voice; you need a slow exhale which can only be
achieved by resisting the muscles designed to push air out; to do this, use the biggest
muscle of inhalation, your diaphragm. With slow exhalation, the rib cage should stay
expanded and the chest should stay high.

6 Tips to Help Project Your Voice - EnkiVillage

2 Open It Up
If you really want to project your voice, open up the back of your throat. The space
behind the tongue creates a resonance chamber which propels sound forward, not
unlike a hall that is well-designed to help sound reach the ears of your listeners naturally.
To achieve this, imagine an egg stuck in your throat, pretend to smell a rose or imagine
the feeling of a yawn. Opening up your throat will greatly project your voice.
3 Voice Placement
Pretending you are wearing a Mardi Gras mask will help you learn how to project your
voice, as this is one of the easiest and quickest tricks of projection. Place your voice into
the mask, which is located below the eyes and along the nose, as this is where
vibrations are felt when speaking or singing. Opening the back of your throat while
placing your voice forward into the mask will give your voice an intriguing, attractive and
easy to hear sound heard by all.
4 Breath Threshold
A good solution for how to make your voice louder is to use breath threshold. In order to
create sound, the vocal cords flap together horizontally. Vocal cords flap together by air
pressure and muscular resistance. The air coming from the lungs through your vocal
cords causes them to open and shut. This process results in oscillation, which causes
sound. Your pitch is determined by how fast or slow the vocal cords oscillate. To produce
a voice that is projected and well-balanced, it is important for you to find just the right
amount of air pressure verses muscular resistance. You can sound breathy if you allow
too much air to flow through the vocal cords or pinched if you are using too much
muscular force. Too much muscular force can also cause damage to the vocal cords
over time. You should attempt to sound breathy and pinched purposefully and then
attempt to find your happy medium between the two. To achieve a voice that is beautiful
and loud, the trick is to sing with as little breathiness as possible, without tension.
5 Energy Is Necessary for Articulation
It is found that most people dont use the tools of articulation such as their jaw, tongue
and lips with enough energy to produce consonants that are crisp and clear. Articulation
has a direct effect on how well your voice carries. By putting more energy into your
muscles of articulation, you are lifting your voice up away from your throat muscles and
into the resonators in your face, which include your cheek bones and sinus cavity.
Cheek bones resemble the sounding board of a piano and your sinus cavity resonates
like a big, open room, which creates a voice with more resonance that will project better
to listeners.

6 Think Big in Terms of Your Voice


Avoid trying to push your voice to become louder as this will most likely make you
hoarse and may even do damage to your vocal cords. To project your voice, imagine
that the inside of your mouth and throat are as large as the room you are speaking in.
This causes all of the muscles around the inside of your throat to pull away as if you
were yawning. The bigger the space you have inside, the bigger the voice will be
outside.
