The Gail Boyd de Stwolinski Center at the University of Oklahoma

Gail Boyd de StwolinskiThe Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy is a project of the Gail Boyd de Stwolinski Center for Music Theory Pedagogy at the University of Oklahoma. The Center was established in 1985 to provide an international clearinghouse for information concerning the teaching and learning of music theory. In addition, the Center was established to honor Dr. Gail Boyd de Stwolinski for professional contributions over a 38-year teaching career and, especially, to perpetuate her intense commitment to excellence in teaching. The fundamental purpose of the Gail Boyd de Stwolinski Center is to foster the vital and creative contributions from outstanding teachers of music theory and share that information with the profession. In short, it is our desire to identify and elevate what is good about our profession--and in so doing, improve it. Read more about the center and its history.
