Host: Why do I really need a voice teacher? Jennifer Rutherford: Well, the reason you need a voice teacher is that you can't really hear how you sound. Have you ever listened to yourself on a tape recorder and going “My goodness is that what I sound like? I sound horrible!” Nobody is used to the way they sound. I am sure I’ll look back with this video and I will say, “My gosh, I sound funny!” Everybody thinks they sound funny on tape that's because you can’t hear yourself properly. So you need someone who’s outside of you, who’s across the room from you to tell you when you sound good. And then your job as a student is to remember the sensations that you felt when the teacher told you that you were singing properly and then you rely on those sensations and repeat those and that's your vocal technique in the end.
