"Steven's compositions are well liked by our students. They offer initial challenges technically and long term challenges musically that allow us plenty to work on. Steven himself has instant rapport in working with the students - he is very generous with his time and talent. I look forward to more of his works in the future."

- Peter Markes, Orchestra Director at Edmond North High School and 2014 Oklahoma        Teacher Of The Year


"The Stillwater High School Orchestra performed the first movement of The Swashbuckling Suite on two consecutive nights in London last year.  On December 29, 2015 we performed in St. John Smith's Square - a concert space that is a converted church from the 1600's.  The following evening we performed in Cadogen Hall (also a converted church performance space) which is the current home of the Royal Philharmonic.   The students and audience both enjoyed the piece-- the way it shares the melodic and rhythmic material is entertaining for the players, for sure!"

- Scott Jackson, orchestra director at Stillwater High School in Stillwater, OK.
