The following thesis is a study of one student’s journey as a student of singing at the University of Mississippi. The author documented her progression through four years of vocal study, culminating in a recital performance that occurred on December 7, 2013. First, the author presents the development of a lifestyle that was reflective of her career as a musician. Next, the author provides a description of rehearsal procedures that enabled technical improvement. Then, the author includes a copy of the program notes that were given to the audience of the December recital. Finally, the author presents an analysis of the recital performance with directions for future growth. Additional materials found with this text include a compact disc containing vocal examples that have been pulled from previous studio lessons and performances. Throughout the chapters, the reader will be instructed to reference this CD as an aural demonstration of topics discussed in the text. There is also a DVD recording of the December vocal recital in its entirety.
