Steven’s music will be featured as part of the Songbook Series at The New York Public Library for the Performing arts at Lincoln Center, hosted by John Znidarsic.
I am a NYC based musician. I have a pretty extensive background in vocal coaching for actors in music theater. I help prospective clients how to approach a song from both a musical perspective and a dramatic perspective. I create 16 bar cuts for auditions. I have the knack for selecting the right song for each actor’s need from my vast knowledge and library of sheet music. I provide the best piano accompaniment for any occasion (wedding, bar mitzvah, company outings as examples) because I can rapidly assess and adapt to your venue and audience no matter what type of music to make your event even more memorable. As a composer, I get real satisfaction from collaborating with a wide range of lyricists. The songs that are born from these collaborations come to life in their own unique way.
Steven reached a milestone! Since the first email (9-12-2011) to yesterday’s final work session (9-22-2013), Hope Belmont’s show, “Surviving Hope,” is ready for the next step: recording, rewrites and readings. On your mark, get set, go!
Steven was very proud to create an arrangement for Lamont Brown who is choreographing and performing a solo Tap Performance on October 8 and October 9. The piece contains three Marvin Hamlisch melodies from “Sweet Smell of Success,” “They’re Playing Our Song,” and “Smile.” Guess the songs! A sort of a mini tribute to Mr. Hamlisch, who passed away suddenly last year. The orchestration is by the brilliant Mitchell McCarthy.
