I was wondering whether or not my vocal timbre will change over time. I’m 19 now and I don’t really like the sound of my voice. It isn’t falsetto, pitchy, nasally or anything like that and I’m not singing out of pitch or range either, but it kind of sounds like I’m trying to sing in an older voice even though I’m still young. I also had a small chest cold a few months back and I still have a little bit of it in my system and I’m wondering if that’s affecting the sound of my voice. Thank You for taking the time to read this message and I hope to hear from you soon.- Sean
Thank you for your email. You know it is hard to give a person evaluation of your timbre and voice since I have not heard you. Every voice is different, and timbre can be effected and manipulated or undone by many things. The best thing you can do is get to a good voice teacher and have them evaluate you. If that is not an option I offer Vocal Assessments on my site where you can submit your voice with questions and I will listen and act as your “virtual voice teacher”.
Check my blog out on my site. I did a whole blog on vocal timbre that might offer some help
As far as your cold, your chords could still be a little swollen which could cause some short lasting changes.
Thank you for your question.
