How do we teach our son about his "inside" voice?

Does everyone use a loud voice in the house? One trick that works well over time is that when he talks loud you go very quietly so that in time he learns to match your voice. Without realizing it, we often talk loud and match the loud voices, so when he begins to use loud tones or screams, just measure your tone in response.
