Abstract: "To fulfill the Senior Honors Project requirements , I have chosen to partake in a senior recital performance of flute works from a range of eras , genres , and styles. As I began my musical journey at the mere age of three , music has played a vital role in shaping my cognitive and emotional status. Not only did piano and ultimately flute studies enhance my overall academic performance through nurturing a hierarchical understanding of notated rhythmic sequences (""Music and Spatial Task Performance€ 611) , but was a personal means of emotional expression. Thus , for my Senior Honors Project , I have decided to share this passion with an audience through performing a compilation of flute repertoire from a wide range of styles. Not only will this signify a milestone in my 18 years of musical studies , but will provide an enjoyable , emotional experience for the audience members. After all , sharing the soul of a work is the foremost purpose of creating music. This Senior Capstone performance will require me to access my toolbox of skills accumulated through countless lessons , rehearsals , master classes , auditions , competitions , and performances. Not only will this apply to the actual production of flute music , but also performance practices such as etiquette , stage presence , and wearing proper attire. By including works from multiple eras of music , from Classical to Modern , I will exemplify the progression and application of the flute throughout time. On top of this , I will provide myself and listeners proper understanding of the works performed through conducting prior research to be summarized on program notes. Through this , I will be able to provide a stylistically and historically accurate performance with an informed audience."
