Writing

Dissertation

The link below will take you to a pdf of my doctoral dissertation, completed in 2014. I received a performance degree- a DMA- and chose an option to finish my degree where the main portion of the dissertation is a recital along with substantial program notes. For my dissertation, I discussed all three of my doctoral recitals and weaved in some exploration on the social discourse of classical music and conservatory culture. The result is not a formal research paper; it is more akin to a personal statement or journal, reflecting on my work at UCSD .
