Master of Education (MEd)




The recital and its consequent report are the culmination of the Master's candidate's years of study. In order to choose his program he must become familiar with the finest compositions suitable for his vocal characteristics. He must research the musical periods and analyze the individual idiosyncrasies of the composers in order to interpret the compositions he performs. He must become aware of his voice, its strengths and weaknesses, and learn to manipulate it to produce pleasing effects. And most difficult of all, he must discipline himself to do the writing, researching, analyzing, memorizing, and rehearsing which will lead to the final goal of increased perception and knowledge necessary to the recital and report. The resultant growth helps to mold the candidate into the musician he is capable of becoming.
