To bring your voice away from the nose, take a small bit of eraser (rubber) about 3/4 cm square

and hold it between your teeth as you read aloud. Do this for around 15 mins per night. After a month or so you should notice a difference in you timbre/voice quality. Do a recording before and after for comparison sake. Having the teeth/mouth incapacitated means you have to use the voice box, throat, tongue and lips more, drawing the expelled air away from your nose to where it is needed.

EXERCISE: Yawn. Hold your throat open and repeat the word 'mood' very distinctly three times, pitches as low as you can without growling or producing a false tone. Imagine that the 'oo' sound comes from your chest. This vowel opens your throat. Now with your throat in the position it took to say 'mood' repeat the word 'ice' three times. Again 'mood' three times ~ then with the throat in the 'oo' position say 'ice' three times. Do this ten times. Now say 'mood' three times; with the throat in the 'oo' position say 'early' ~ then substitute the words 'regular,' 'Mary,' 'pie,' 'fancy' and 'three.' Always say 'mood' first and be sure to pronounce distinctly. This exercise will take the shrillness and nasal quality out of any voice and give it a lovely mellowness. Do this regularly and whenever possible and as long as you can without tiring unused muscles. Practice using the principles of contrast in conversation.
