Steven's work as a musician encompasses composing and arranging, performing as piano soloist and accompanist, teaching, training choirs and conducting. He lives in Bristol, but his work takes him all over South-West England, Wales, London and beyond.

Born in Worcester in 1962, and educated at the King's School, he then studied music at St John's College Cambridge and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. His composition teachers were Robin Holloway, George Nicholson, Alfred Nieman and Hugh Wood. His piano teachers were Phyllis Palmer and Terence Beckles.



Steven is happy to offer piano lessons either in-person or online, whichever you prefer. In-person lessons will comply with Covid-19 guidelines. Online lessons are delivered via Skype or Zoom.

The choral societies in Bristol, Monmouth, and Thornbury are continuing their activities in line with current government guidelines. Visit their websites for details. Music-making will go on!
