Today, I will be sharing with you 4 easy tricks that famous speakers and radio hosts use to modulate their voices during their public speaking presentations.

Regardless of whether you speak English as a second language or you are a native English speaker, if you are not using effective voice modulation techniques, you won’t be an effective public speaker at all.

We are going to dive into a really simple 4-step rule that all radio DJ’s use to keep their audiences captivated. It’s called: HIGH – LOW – FAST – SLOW


1. HIGH.

When you change the pitch to a higher pitch when speaking, it sounds much more exciting and engaging than a lower pitch. You feel and hear the excitement of the voice with the higher pitch. You can immediately see how powerful the higher pitch becomes with some sentences that require ACTION, EXCITEMENT and PASSION. The sound of passion and excitement can easily be heard when someone is raising their pitch because that’s what we actually do when we are excited! We raise our pitch. So, try reading or speaking a sentence out loud in a lower pitch and then a higher pitch so you can hear the difference for yourself. 


  2. LOW

Many radio and TV presenters, especially news readers, use a very low pitch to convey authority and a very serious tone of voice. We as listeners expect people in the media to sound like this, as it conveys confidence simply by using a lower pitch. 

The high pitch sounded too high and flippant and wont grab much of people’s attention but the lower version really sounds like “I mean business”.

This simple trick is so easy to do and people really respond to these lower directives with respect because you sound like an authority just by lowering your pitch. 


3. FAST 

When you want to create excitement and action in your audience, the easiest way is to speak a sentence or two FASTER. It sounds exciting and engaging and when done correctly, it will be super clear as well. Where people go wrong with this is by thinking that speaking their whole presentation at a fast pace will actually make it more interesting. This is NOT true. If you speak out everything at a fast pace, it will be impossible for your audience to keep up.

 So, instead what I want you to do is this: choose certain sentences in your speech that could be ramped up with energy and enthusiasm by speeding up that sentence only. Then stop. Pause. So the audience can assimilate the information they just heard. If you don’t give them that pause, they may not understand what you are saying at all and spend their time trying to catch up.


4. SLOW.

During a speaking presentation, using a slower pace for a really important piece of information will make the message land more powerfully in the ears of the listener. By slowing down certain points of tricky or complicated content, it will make it easier for your audience to really grasp the concept you are talking about. So, you can see how important it is if you are going to speed up and leave a pause. Some things need to be slowed down if it is very important.


Remember the 4 keys to simple but effective voice modulation is HIGH – LOW – FAST – SLOW. Now you can see how important these four tips are. Try them for yourself and do some practice!
