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 recently conducted Bach's Matthew Passion in Monmouth, and the reviewer described the performance as "one of the best and most moving that Monmouth Choral Society has ever delivered".

His next concert as conductor will be a programme of Mozart and Handel in Thornbury. [TCS]
