I recently had my adenoids removed, and the ENT thought that my deep voice would sound clearer and that people would be able to understand me more. But the surgery didn't improve anything. I also went to see a voice therapist. She said it might be because when I speak air blows through my nose. Does this affect the pitch of the voice?

Melissa Kim M.S., CCC-SLP replies... 
No, altered resonance does not directly impact pitch. Although the perception of pitch may be altered with changes in resonance, pitch is a phenomenon of frequency of vibration of the vocal folds. You may want to seek out a second opinion from a speech pathologist who specializes in the treatment of voice disorders.

Best of luck to you.
