Common changes in the voice as we get older:
    Once the voice matures at around age 20, it tends to remain relatively stable until around age 60. Commonly reported voice changes follow.
•  Higher pitch voice in men
 •  Reduced vocal endurance
  •  Lower pitch voice in women
   •  Tremor or shakiness in the voice
    •  Difficulty being heard in noisy situations
     •  Reduced volume & projection of the voice (or “thin” voice)
