Scholar Spotlight


Sharon Wilson, sophomore in music education from Manhattan, Kansas, is researching the importance of Spanish songs in vocal music education. Wilson has been working on her research project since August 2014 when her and her research mentor, Amy Rosine, associate professor of music, documented students' experiences of learning a Spanish song.

Next year, Wilson will continue with her project alongside her two research mentors, Rosine and Ruth Gurgel, as they explore the falling of Spanish music in vocal performance and music education.

Wilson will present her research at the university's annual music education symposium this summer.
