Matt Austin

Hello everyone!! My name is Mr. Austin and I am the band director here at Stover Middle School. From 2007-2010 I was actually a student here at Stover. It is so nice to be back home and working witih some of the same teachers who taught me. I live right here in Elgin with my beautiful wife and daughter. Fun fact, I actually met my wife right here at Stover while we were both in band! I went to Lugoff-Elgin High School and graduated in 2014. From there I headed to Furman University in Greenville, SC, where I earned my Bachelors degree in Music in 2018. Since then I have traveled across the country to teach and attend at many different music camps. I am involved with a few different professional ensembles, Appalachia: A Southeastern Wind Symphony (I am on the musicians advisory council, and perform with them), The Poinsett Wind Symphony, and The Lakeside Concert Band.


This year we will be resuming live performances!
