Important Voice Modulation Tips for Kids

Public speaking is a skill that is essential in all ages. Not only does it make a strong position for you in a social setting but also allow you to be taken seriously. 

In several social settings, public speaking is prevalent and speakers are seen as a figure to look up to. 

It's extremely simple to write down a speech, learn it and speak it in front of a crowd. But following the exact same process along with the techniques can make a huge change in the way that speeches are perceived by the audience. 

Let's look at some effective tips that help in voice modulation.

1. Pitch Variation:

The step to being a good speaker is not being monotone. Ever wonder why you get so bored in some lectures while enjoying some others? That’s because of how the lecturers prepare themselves to grab your attention through their speeches. The variations in the pitch holds most of the power, decides the mood and purpose of the content and ultimately conveys the main idea.

2. Pronunciation:

If the speaker does not pronounce words with efficiency, the entire focus of the audience will shift to it. No matter how valuable the content might be, if the pronunciation is not apt, it pulls down the speaker to the starting point.

3. Pace Control:

The speakers need to adjust the pace of their speech to emphasise on more important points and move faster on the points which are not that important to the whole speech. 

4. Breath Control: 

The ‘go to’ technique to deliver long speeches is to maintain your breath. The speaker NEEDS to practise breath controlling in order to not look nervous and anxious on stage.

5. Varying Rhythm:

Speaking at a similar rhythm cannot make you a good speaker. Your speech must include different rhythms while taking, shifting from the typical speech to interactive one. Speeding up and slowing down is a must!

6. Volume:

Expressing different ranges of emotions can be difficult if done only through words. That is where the modulation of your voice comes into the picture. The differing volumes in your speech will grab the attention of your audience.

7. Pauses:

Every speech includes the ’more important’ parts and the speaker demands the audience to comprehend those parts. Now, it is only possible if the speaker pauses for a moment after those important parts. Every good speaker understands the importance of silence which sometimes is more relevant than speaking something.

8. Listen and practice: 

Before ‘the big day’, every speaker spends hours practising. But not every speaker knows the trick behind it.recording yourselves can be a very effective way to listen to yourself and make changes wherever needed.

9. Stick to Context:

Design your speech and follow voice modulation according to the context and purpose of your speech. If your speech is a pitch to become a student leader in school, your voice modulation needs to be tailored in a convincing way. 

10. Receive Feedback:

Seek feedback from others on how your voice modulation worked and how it was perceived by the audience.

There are innumerable tips and techniques that have to be followed while preparing for public speaking, these are just some of those which outshine others and bring the most results. 

While following these 10 tips, do not forget to hold your confidence high, that is the key to every form of effective communication.
