About the Host

Stephanie Stallings, PhD, is a Lecturer in Music History at Northern Arizona University. Since 2009, she has focused on developing thoughtful programs that deepen engagement with the community while centering art and music.

“Every course I teach aims to help people find ways to place the music they hear into contexts in which that music becomes meaningful, relevant, revelatory–in which music becomes both the topic of discussion and the means by which all of us can learn from one another.”
