GUEST,Don Wise Speaking voice versus singing voice (42) RE: Speaking voice versus singing voice 27 Jan 12

Singing for yourself at home is something you tend to do at less than full volume which means, in my case (ignoring other changes due to age etc.) means I tend to sing a couple of tones too low. Up on stage, especially if there's no PA, no matter how good the acoustics are, a higher pitch allows the voice to carry better, at least in my experience. The downside is that all those beautiful accompaniments tend to be write-offs since all too often it's not simply a case of capoing up or down.
My speaking voice can be a problem- I'm a voice-over artist and quite often if I'm close to the mike and speaking fairly quietly the pitch slips a tone or two upwards in the direction of the 'Head voice' rather than the more usual, and usually required, 'Chest voice'.
