Be proud! I'm a strong musician, I'm one of the top singers in the whole county. I'm also one of the lowest basses in the state. I'm very scrawney...tall, but scrawney. My voice sometimes startles people because it doesnt seem to fit my physical proportions. In my experiences, I've seen a lot of people with very different vocal ranges. I've seen some HUGE 30 year old football player type people that were over 6 feet tall and weighed a good 250-300 pounds, who had the voice of an 8 year old girl. Sure, that is unique, but it's actually an amazing gift in some peoples cases. Sometimes it can be embarassing and "less macho man", but it's part of who you are. I was lucky when it came to my voice changing. I was in 8th grade, and my voice could easily pass for a 10 year old girls voice. Then one morning I woke up with no voice at all. My voice was lost all the next day. The next morning I woke up and I sounded like a completely different person. No one recognized my voice, and I would scare myself when I spoke. So my voice quite litterally changed overnight. I went from having an unusually high voice for an 8th grader, to having an unusually low voice for an 8th grader. Some peoples voices take decades to change, some change overnight, and some never change. One of my music idols is Paul McCartney's drummer. I just had a brain fart and I cant remember his name. He is the guy that I described in the first few sentences (huge guy, tiny voice).
Anyways, my point: There's really nothing you can do about it except love it and care for it, because IT is part of you. Just my 2 cents... ~Jonton
