Masculinize Your Voice Without Testosterone
Whether you’re a trans man, or a transmasc nonbinary person, or you just struggle with the sound of your voice regardless of your gender, it can be so frustrating to move through the world knowing that merely opening your mouth to express yourself can cause gender dysphoria, distress, and discomfort.
You may have been told up until now that the only way to develop a voice that is low enough, deep enough, and powerful enough to align with your gender is to take testosterone. However, that is not the only way!
Can you imagine:
- Moving through the world with voice confidence, knowing how to control your pitch and resonance, even in stressful situations.
- Getting gendered correctly by strangers when speaking, even over the phone.
- Having a clear understanding of what goes into creating a masculine voice and all the steps needed to get there.

What trans people are saying...
"Renée's energy and enthusiasm are infectious and they really foster a positive, safe and caring environment. The vocal exercises they taught and their knowledge on all things vocal exploration were exemplary and I would be more than happy to recommend anyone - regardless of where they place themselves on the gender spectrum and beyond - to participate in your workshops in future.”
Lilith Ferreyra-Carroll, age 36 (she/her)
"I always leave Renée's classes having learned more about my voice and more about myself. Renée's openness and adaptability to accessibility needs make for a warm and welcoming learning environment. As a trans man, they have also been very helpful in helping me explore different aspects of my voice, which has been very gender-affirming. To me, they have been an excellent vocal coach and life coach. Honestly a two for one deal!"
Mathieu, age 25 (he/him)
“I took private lessons with Renée for six months and it was one of my best transition decisions. I have tried for years to understand gender-affirming voice lessons from YouTube videos, and workshops, but all of them were beyond the scope of my understanding. Lessons with Renée helped me to understand how the wonderful vocal instrument works. With exercise and taking small steps along the way, I'm now confident I can climb this mountain and succeed."

"Renée is a powerhouse creator and educator clearing the path for trans and disabled folks around the world. Their talent combined with their intense passion for others makes them a stellar educator. They’re a queer, non-binary, disabled voice teacher and musician who’s been taking the internet by storm by working to bring accessible gender-affirming vocal therapy to all."
- Val J., Scarleteen
"As a trans person who is more attuned toward the convolutions and contradictions of transitioning, Yoxon’s philosophy around voice feminization differs from the typical speech pathologist. 'Passing was never my goal with voice training,' they say. 'There are so many things the voice can do, it’s exciting! What I’m trying to do is have my clients experience gender euphoria with their voice. I’m trying to help people find a voice that they feel represents them. That voice may pass or it may not; passing is so context-specific.'"
- Nour Abi Nakhoul, Xtra*
Montreal-based singer-songwriter and educator Renée Yoxon has released four full-length albums while also building a career as a highly respected trans voice teacher. Their latest album, 2020’s Beautiful Alchemy, is the soundtrack to a documentary directed by Teagan Lance that paints a portrait of Yoxon’s struggles and triumphs with identity, disability and artistic ambition. It’s a crossover jazz album with lovely songwriting, emotional depth and broad musical appeal, with Yoxon’s crystal clear and expressive voice filling their songs with life and personality.

Yoxon is proudly queer, non-binary, disabled, and trans. Priorities are trans and non-binary joy, accessibility, and centering BIPOC experiences. As an educator, they focus on making the experience of singing accessible. This focus is as apparent in the beauty of the songscape of their music making. The artistry is in the collective musical inclusiveness.
