Degrees and Certifications:
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 newborn 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, The Poinsett Wind Symphony, and The Lakeside Concert Band.
This year has put a hold on most live performances, but we have found ways to SAFELY make music for other people to enjoy. Go Band!
