A respected brass band conductor who stood in front of his first band at the age of 15, Steven has demonstrated his ability and musicality with many bands at all levels over the past 40+ years.
Shortly after arriving in New Zealand in 2006 Steven was approached to take up the baton as Professional Conductor of Waitakere Auckland Brass Band where he was the man in the middle for 8 years. Eventually other commitments forced him to step down from this role but he is still with the band today as their Solo Baritone.
In 2015 Steven was appointed Musical Director of The Band of The Royal Regiment of New Zealand Artillery, New Zealand's oldest band with an unbroken playing history since 1864. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength, with increasing players numbers and engagements, and even several foreign tours.
Steven is also available as a freelance conductor, please see our contact page for ways to get in touch.
