Abigail Sten Graham enjoys an active career as a flutist, teaching artist, and mentor. From the recital hall to the school classroom, she can usually be found sharing music with others.


Abigail has been described as a "strong and focused" performer by the Santa Barbara News-Press.  A first-place winner of the American Protégé International Woodwinds and Brass Competition, Graham debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2017. She won the National Flute Association's Convention Performers Competition in 2018.  She also serves as vice president of the San Francisco Flute Society, where she was director of the 2014 SF Flute Festival.


Graham has performed with the North State Symphony, the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra, and the Debut Orchestra in Los Angeles.  For something different, she enjoyed playing Irish dance music with Dannsair in Santa Barbara's pubs.

Abigail coaches flute students both privately and in the classroom setting.  She spent several years as lead artist-in-residence for the San Mateo-Foster City School District, where she worked closely with more than 1,000 young flute students.  She also coached young flutists in several schools throughout the Santa Barbara area.  


Graham holds a master's degree in flute performance from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She earned her bachelor's degree from the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music. She owes much gratitude to her teachers Sharon Perschke, Beatrice Rentsch, George Pope, Alberto Almarza, and Jill Felber.


Graham now manages a large virtual flute studio from the Pittsburgh area.  She also serves local churches and community organizations as a substitute pianist.  When not making music, Abigail can be found in the gym or playing with her young daughters.
