Dr. Pamela Stover is an Associate Professor of Music Education at the University of Toledo (Ohio, USA) where she supervises student teachers and teaches courses in early childhood and general music at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Although her public school teaching experience was in urban inner-cities, her research concerns historical music teacher preparation, music teaching materials and methods, and rural schools.  She studied Kodály-inspired teaching at Indiana University with the late Dr. Jean Sinor. Stover was recently awarded a prestigious Fulbright Research Scholar Grant to the Kodály Institute in Hungary. There she will do archival research on the history of Kodály-inspired teaching during the spring semester of 2020. She is a frequent clinician for general music, choirs, music teachers and the research community and has taught or presented research throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Israel, Azerbaijan and China.  In addition to her Kodály study, she is also one of the leading scholars of the Orff-Schulwerk process of teaching music, having studied at the Orff Institute in Salzburg and earned a Mastery Certificate from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. Stover earned her PhD from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in music education with minor fields of pipe organ and church music. She holds the position of Associate Organist at Christ the King Catholic Church in Toledo and gives regular organ recitals at the Toledo Museum of Art and other venues, in addition to teaching organ students at the University of Toledo.
