CMS December Spotlight - Stefanie Dickinson
Stefanie Dickinson is Associate Professor of Music Theory at the University of Central Arkansas. Her primary interests are Liszt’s late experimental music and theory pedagogy. She has presented work on these topics at regional, national, and international meetings and published on them as well, most recently contributing to the award-winning Routledge Guide to Music Theory Pedagogy. She is a dedicated proponent of new music and is the featured collaborative pianist on a CD recording of song cycles by the American composer Karen Griebling on the Centaur label. She holds an undergraduate degree in piano and graduate degrees in piano and music theory. This summer she completed her second transatlantic crossing aboard the Queen Mary 2, an experience she highly recommends.
