I recently just filmed a singing recital, and I want to edit a part of the song where the student messed up... Any suggestions? Is this even possible? Something free would be very nice

Audacity will do a great job if your only editing the soundtrack. You need something like Cinalarra for editing the video. I'm new to the Mac (coming over from the Linux world) so I'm not sure what the equiv would be for the Mac. Being that the Mac is well known for video and audio editing I suspect there is one however.

Side note, when installing Audacity install the beta version as the stable version does not work on the Mac at this time.

I used to get the job done with Sound Forge (back in the PC years)
I don't like audacity very much so i switched to Ardour.

It is kind of professional but it is free and you're gonna like it.

Quicktime Pro (not free)? Another vote too for Amadeus (audio only), it's my favorite music editor.

Garageband is already on your Mac and will do the job for the audio, if you want to edit the video then of course iMovie is also present on your Mac already.
That about sums it up. If clipping out a couple parts is all you need, just use what you have on your computer. Gets the job done quite easily.

Right clicking on one or a multiple of songs in the iTunes music library or even in a playlist will bring up the option to edit songs
