ALL ABOUT STEVEN

Past.


Steven started playing the saxophone at the age of eight and, because he was perceived to have a talent for it, at the age of twelve he was invited to follow a pre-education program to prepare for the conservatory of Maastricht. By then, he had already started composing music and immediately knew this was what he wanted to do, even more than studying saxophone. This lead to Steven studying Classical Composition at the Conservatory of

Tilburg. During this study he was admitted to a minor program film scoring at the conservatory of Amsterdam. Graduated in 2020.


Present.


Steven was admitted to the master program of Berklee College of Music, scoring for film, television and video games wich allowed him to build and sharpen the skills in instrumentation, orchestration and recording. 

Future.
