How Does a Boy’s Voice Change? | Puberty

Video taken from the channel: Howcast


Also around age13, you may notice a temporary growth in the size of your breasts. A boy’s voice starts “cracking” around the age of 13. You may have a growth spurt at about 13 1/2. When you’re 1. All boys go through voice change at some stage.

It is a part of the natural process of growing up. Pubertal changes in the body start before the voice begins to change. It occurs due to hormonal changes in the body.

Sources indicate that when your son’s voice begins to change, this often marks the beginning of the rest of your child’s growth spurt. “This growth spurt is a time during adolescence where height increases rapidly. Once your son’s voice stops changing, his growth spurt starts to decrease.”. Remember that warmups during adolescent voice change are not about increasing their range, they’re designed to help boys discover how their new voice feels and sounds.

3. Experiment with the new voice. Singing is as much about feel as about sound, and since boys’ bodies change so rapidly, the feel element of vocal production can be overlooked. The longer cords of adult males produce lower-pitched voices. As the larynx and vocal cords are going through this growth phase, the changes can cause the voice to “crack.” The change of voice can happen quickly; over only a few weeks or months, the voice begins to crack and then becomes deeper and more resonant. The following changes may also happen to a boy as he goes through puberty: Body size will increase.

Sometimes the feet, arms, legs, and hands may grow faster than the rest of the body. This may Some boys may get some swelling in the breast area. This is a result of the hormonal changes that are. Some weight gain during puberty is needed for normal growth.

Eat healthy foods and exercise regularly to help you stay at the right weight for your size. Voice changes mean your voice may start to crack or sound different. This happens as your larynx (voice box) and your vocal cords grow. 1. Broadening of chest and shoulders. Onset of puberty brings many physical changes in boys.

Their chest and shoulders broaden and their muscles start to develop. 2. Deepening of voice and appearance of facial hair. The voice gets deeper. Hair begins to grow on the face that later develop into moustache and beard.

3. Because of this gradual change, a boy’s voice can occasionally crack. The change in voice occurs when a boy’s voice box, also known as the larynx, begins to grow.

While this is happening, the vocal cords start thickening. The nasal, sinus and throat cavities also become larger, which allows the voice greater area through which to resonate. Boys’ larynxes grow so rapidly during puberty that they sometimes stretch the capacity of vocal cords.

Like a guitar string pulled too tight, the cords issue pitched squeaks, cracks, and croaks. This embarrasses boys and provides.

  • my voice stop cracking a lot, just a little bit didn’t notice a big change, still cracks from once and a while is it still changing cause i still sound like a little boy, but you can tell i am a boy

  • 1:03 More like it will settle to what if will be as a teenager in 1-2 years because you don’t sound like an adult at 14, and then your young man voice is in 4-10 years after that. It still goes through 30s and finally full 40s voice, and then it gets worn out in old age.

  • some days ago my voice suddenly started to sound croaky while I was playing games. My friend was very surprised like me. The strange thing is that I am almost 13(12.11).Nevermind anyone know how to fix my voice because is is driving my crazy?!?It was like 3 days ago and almost the whole time I sound croaky. Help pls.

  • Im going through puberty and my voice is starting to drop! Ive wanted my voice to drop so long! It is a little nerve wracking though! But its cool

  • To all the young boys out there that are insecure about their voice because they’re getting older and they sometimes get confused for a girl at times… i was also that boy, and your voice will always get much deeper and you will most definitely sound like a man

  • Based on my experience, your voice will turn really deep and you’ll face a real struggle to hit high notes that you used to hit effortlessly but your voice will go higher again a bit (maturing or sth) several years later after that deepest voice point iukwim.. sorry for my English ✌️

  • I’m 10, pretty much 11, I’ve only been hitting puberty for a month now and I just had my first voice crack while talking to my friends.
