white doc martens ebay How long does it take for a boy’s voice to break
QuestionI’m 14 now and it seems as if it’s taking forever for my voice to break.
I constantly squeak when I speak. But despite this I’ve got a very deep voice compared to all my classmates, (I’m always the one ending up having to pretend to be the voice of an adult etc!) and I’m going through puberty like any other lad.
I want to know because I play piano and at the moment and I’m learning quite a lot of Frank Sinatra songs and other songs which involve singing. I can sing fairly well and I take singing lessons.

The problem is that whenever I try to sing higher notes it just comes out as squeaks and sounds terrible!
My singing teacher says eventually my voice will drop, except I just want to know how long it will take because it’s really irritating me.
AnswerWell, I’ve done a bit of digging to see if I can find a good answer for you, but everyone who has written about this issue avoids nailing it down to a firm timescale, which is what I expected to find!
It’s one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’ questions! It might take weeks, it might take months and sometimes it might take a couple of years.
The important thing to know though is whether or not there is any underlying problem with you hormones and given that you say you are undergoing otherwise normal development.
In terms of the changes in your body related to puberty, and the fact that you feel healthy means that you have no underlying problem.
The changes in your voice are due to the thickening effects of the testosterone working on the tissues around your voice box and I would think that singing is actually a good way to help the changes on their way.
