Finding Optimal Speaking Pitch Range
Every voice has an ideal speaking pitch and speaking pitch range. Here is a chart compiled and designed based upon research information and my personal experience as a voice trainer. A qualified voice professional can help you find your optimal speaking pitch.
Optimal Speaking Pitch Range Findings:
1) Male speaking voice averages about 125 Hz, Female voice averages about 210 Hz (Georgia State Univ., Dept of Physics and Astronomy)
2) Male age 51 = 110 Hz, age 21 = 130 Hz; Female age 51 = 174 Hz, age 21 = 196 Hz (Greater Baltimore Medical Center Milton J. Dance, Jr. Head & Neck Rehab. Ctr.)
3) Male 110-130 Hz, Female 200-230 Hz (Wake Forest University Center for Voice Disorders 2001 Online Opinion Poll)
4) Male 110 Hz, Female 220 Hz (Wikipedia)
NOTE: Habitual Speaking Pitch is not necessarily the same as Optimal Speaking Pitch.
