How can I make my voice higher? I am a woman with a low voice. My voice lowered 10 years ago due to a hormone producing tumor. I would really like to sing in a women’s choir but I’m really a tenor and just can’t sing high enough. Is there anything I can do to get a few notes higher?
I have never had anyone with this kind of hormone issue before so I have to say, “I don’t know.” If the hormones have caused the vocal mass to increase, it might be an irreversible condition. I would ask your endocrinologist as well as a laryngologist what the physical realities are. If they say the cords can be trained to phonate at higher pitches, then find a really good voice teacher and work with technigues to develop the cords. I’m sorry this is all I have to offer, but to say anything more specific would not be responsible.
If your voice cannot be raised, you might consider singing in a mixed choir. I know several women who sing tenor. All the best.
