Would singing lessons help with my monotonous cracked up voice?

No how interesting my topic is, my mono-tone voice makes it sound boring. On top of that, my voice is not pleasant to listen to. Being 26 years old, my voice is still very course.

I am wondering if i were to take singing lessons, would that help my voice sound better?

Maybe when you're singing, yes. To correct the "monotonous" voice, all you really need is to SPEAK with more emphasis on certain words, sorta like how I capped the SPEAK. Singing lessons would maybe help with air-flow if that's whats causing the monotone problem, but otherwise I think its more of a psychological rather than physical problem.

you have to be able to talk with interest about the subject as well. You should practice reading a book out loud and making it sound interesting.

I have taken singing lessons. I think that it helped my breathing and how I sometimes ran out of air when I spoke normally.

I know several people that give excellent lessons. PM me if you are interested

there are teachers who teach speach or speach arts, as I recall. This is what I quickly googled

I remember when I was a kid, my parents took me weekly to some teacher who had me go through a curriculum of things like performing a monologue, acting/expressing in mime, or discussing a random topic. First it helps build confidence, two the teacher and ultimately an examiner (kind like for piano lessons, you get an exam at the end of each "grade" or "level") will judge you by the quality of your presentation, clarity of voice, enunciation and other criteria. I distinctly remember it was a curriculum from Trinity College

Even a public speaking course or group such as Toastmasters would be a great place to practice speaking, and having others give you constructive feedback on how to improve. And if you don't, at least your will build some confidence. Sometimes it just takes a bit of confidence to move your voice from building in the throat to building from your chest and stomach so you project more clearly and with confidence.

hope that helps

I noticed you can tell when someone people have totally given up and speak in such a monotonus way.

For example, everyone has friend (who's a girl) who has a (or considered by many) a deeper voice. As we all know it's just because she's not putting emphasis on the voice. My ex used to be like that. Before when I just met her, she had a very high, cheery voice that you hear from all tiny asian girls lol. But if she's tired, or just chilling at home, it'll be more of a monotonus voice, as with myself as well.

Just try speaking with confidence in what you speak, give it a bit more effort, and talk about something you want to talk about.
