I started with a REALLY HIGH falsetto. That was just to get my voice used to the higher pitches. Once I got comfortable with that, I began softening my voice until it was within a normal speaking range. Of course, this is just so you can get the gist of speaking in your female tone.

Something I did for a while was on my commute to work (of course for you, just substitute when you have some alone time since I do believe you still go to school) I would sing in falsetto to female singers who had quite a high range. This got my voice out of male range and helped adjust my vocal chords to something I could actually work with. I have been working on it for over 2 years now, and while I am never misgendered now, it did take a lot of practice and did not happen over night.

Here are some resources you may find useful:

Voice exercises

This video series is now available free on YouTube from Genderlife

And here is the workbook (also now free) that accompanies this video (Thank you my friend, Jenny: I quoted you from another post so you would get an alert)

You can download the free workbook that goes with the video. http://www.genderlif...-page/voicebook

CandiFLA method works pretty well and is a way to feel how low resonance is.

You will need a microphone/recorder (audacity is good for recording on pc).

Then when you are getting closer to the voice you want, practice practice practice until it's natural.

Check out Exceptionalvoice.com this is a website by Kathy Perez who has worked with trans woman for years to develop an exceptional feminine everyday voice. Kathy is a Speech Language Pathologist and has earned world wide fame in teaching thousands of trans woman worldwide to bring out an exceptional female voice. I now fool people over the phone after daily practice with Kathy's CD Roms practicing and learning to speak in the A3 range or 220 Htz which is the female normal voice range. Check out Kathy Perez for you best feminine voice and then practice daily at least 20 to 30 minutes. I practice on the way to work and on the way home. I love the progress I'm making improving my best feminine voice. Thanks Kathy for your excellent training program. Katheryn

I'm still learning. I find it easier on the phone because I can hear myself and keep adjusting. It would be much more difficult if it were not for my beloved Dee Dee who was the first woman in my whole life to encourage me in seeking my true self. She is tirelessly patient and gentle with my attempts and keeps encouraging me to not give up. I also practise on my commute and when walking my dog, who doesn't seem to mind my experimentation at all, and more recently, with phone solicitors and poll takers. I too, start as high as I can in falsetto, then soften and lower. Trying for the breathy Marilyn Monroe sound helps also.

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.
