After studying voice for two years, I have fount this general study f vocal techniques to be very educational as well as interesting. When I began the study I was classified as a mezzo-soprano, due to a limited range. Therefore, I was interested mainly in material dealing with the mezzo-soprano voice. During the year, however, my range has increased and, because of the quality of my vice added to this increase in range, I am now beginning to sing more lyric soprano music. Naturally, then, my interest has shifted to the lyric soprano voice, its qualities, tessitura, etc.
I believe, however, that the thing which has impressed me most in the whole study is the amount of time which must be spent to become a truly great artist. The great singers never complete their studies. So many young musicians today lack the time and patience one must have to attain this artistry.
