Resume / Bio:
Maya Stone is a champion of music. She has commissioned and premiered several works by American composers. Recent projects include solo bassoon in Black Gospel Music. She is honored to be a member of the Rushes Ensemble, which premiered and recorded Michael Gordon’s concert-length work for 7 bassoons. The group recently toured Europe showcasing the work, and continues to bring the piece to notable venues. Stone gives recitals and master classes around the U.S. each year. She has been a member of the Sphinx Orchestra since 2008, and won the second bassoon position with the Huntsville Symphony in 2007. She plays at the International Double Reed Society Conference, and performs regularly with orchestras around the South East. Stone loves to teach. She maintains an active teaching schedule whether in the academic or private setting. She has held visiting professorships at the University of Missouri in Columbia, and Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She has held the position of Assistant Professor of Bassoon at Middle Tennessee State University, and in 2004, she held a visiting professorship in double reeds at Austin Peay State University. Stone received her D.M.A. in bassoon performance from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010, an M.M. in bassoon performance and woodwind specialty from Michigan State University in 2003, and a B.M. in music education from SUNY Potsdam in 2001. Maya just recently moved back to the South East, and is thrilled to be living there again. She loves the green, rolling hills and mountains, and the crisp sun that is so prevalent in the region. For fun and recreation, Maya likes to dance salsa, run, and hang around nature and art. Although she does not have pets, she adores animals, and hopes to have a dog of her own someday.
