Vocal training: tuning
For all my trans sisters out there who want to train their voice so that they pass, I made this simple audio file that has a piano that plays the top note of the average “female” voice frequency (of 220 Hz or A3) and then at about 2:50 (or a little past half-way through) it starts with the lowest note of the average “female” voice frequency (of 170 Hz or F3). This is only addressing pitch. There are tons of other factors that come into play as to whether or not you pass. Obviously it’s extremely shitty to call any frequency that of a female. This may only change how people in public generally perceive you. You are inherently whatever gender you identify as regardless of your vocal qualities. Anyway, disclaimer aside, try making the “heee” “haaaa” and “hooooo” sounds at the A3 tone - doing each sound for a few seconds, three times each. And then try to make a conversation with yourself or someone else while the second tone (F3) is playing, trying not to go lower than that pitch. I’m still working on everything other than pitch and will post more resources if I can make them as I go on in voice training. Feel free to download it and put it on your computer/ipod/phone to practice wherever!
