The Master of Music in Voice Pedagogy and Performance prepares students to be cutting edge 21st-century voice pedagogues, while allowing the student to focus their pedagogic study in a variety of areas of artistic voice training.  Along with training in traditional voice performance, course content in voice science presents the student with fact-based voice pedagogy training in physiology and acoustics of singing.  Students will synthesize comparative pedagogy for competency in teaching Western Classical and Contemporary Commercial Music (CCM) styles.  The study of repertoire for teaching will prepare students with a thorough awareness of repertoire in all major styles to enhance voice technique. Those focus areas, along with potential for quantitative research produced through the facilities at MC and the University of Mississippi Medical Center's Voice Laboratory will equip these students to pursue careers as researchers, pedagogues, or performers.
