Sabrina Stovall

Lecturer General Music, Music Education

Sabrina Stovall M.M. is a sought-after teacher from Central Texas. Believing that all students should attain their personal best and goals, she is equally proud of students who have gained entrance to some of the most prestigious music programs in the country, as well as her students who wish to play the bassoon purely for recreation. She’s worked with students ages 11-40, teaching private lessons, as well as coaching sectionals and chamber ensembles workshops. At the college level, she teaches Applied Bassoon as well as Music Appreciation and a variety of courses. Her experience includes teaching at the University of the Incarnate Word, Northwest Vista College, Our Lady of the Lake University and Schreiner University.

Since founding the Adelante Winds in 2012, and the organization’s Chamber Music Camp in 2019, Prof. Stovall has taught and coached wind players in a week-long intensive workshop, which features score study, rehearsal techniques and performance anxiety management. As a guest lecturer, she offers workshops on performance practice and entrepreneurial skills, and mentors students on how to bring their personal best. In 2022 she joined the faculty of the Summer Music In Tuscany Music Festival, allowing her to reach more students.

Active as an orchestral player, Sabrina plays principal bassoon with Symphony of the Hills in Kerrville, TX. Additional credits include engagements with the Orquesta Sinfónica de la UANL in Monterrey, Mexico, the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra (TX), and two seasons with the Aspen Music Festival orchestras.

Living in gratitude, Sabrina celebrates the people who have been integral to her own journey. Her teachers have included Karen Pierson, Daris Hale, Per Hannevold, Nancy Goeres and Monica Ellis.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling. She believes that “getting lost” can often be an excellent start to a great adventure.
