It’s a voice we all know, we’ve all used it. It may lack confidence, or be a little surly or snappy, but it’s learning who it is. Teenager voices come in all shapes and sizes, and we can help you find just the right one for your audio piece.
Teenager voices reflect something we’ve all felt at some time or another. After all, we were all teens. These voices are crucial to conveying the feelings of teens; their voices are very expressive, even when they are trying to hide all of those raw emotions. Using teenager voices helps your piece become relatable and real. Let your listeners connect to the teenager with a teenage voice.
You may want to use a teenage voice in a coming of age piece or a video game. They’re great for YA audiobooks and even learning videos for school. Think how much more effective a PSA for teens would be with teenager voices rather than the voice of a boring old guy.
The characteristics of teenager voices certainly can vary just like teenagers themselves. You may hear a lack of confidence or bold strength. You may hear internal struggles or leadership taking charge. Of course, there are always voice cracks in the teenage boy voice, and those could be effective in your piece if used the right way. Think the determination of Katniss Everdeen, the fortitude or Neville Longbottom, and the disillusionment of Holden Cauflield. No matter what your teen is feeling, ramp it up in their voice, and your piece will be a winner.
