I lead creative music workshops for musicians and educators all over the country.
One of my favorite presentations at JEN! Comprehensive, coherent, engaging, entertaining, informative, and organized.

Steve’s workshops are fun, inviting and empowering! The musical games give kids the confidence to feel great about improvisation. Steve uses improvisation to develop the total musician, and my bands are better for it.

Musical improvisation doesn’t have to be a terrifying experience.
I founded the Game Symphony Workshop to give musicians the tools, confidence, and community to create and perform their own music.
The workshop experience:
A team of facilitators and I lead workshops for adult and student musicians.
I came to the Game Symphony Workshop to try to overcome the writers block that was inhibiting my composing. After the first day, my mind came up with a new melody and after playing with that melody on the second day, I woke up to a complete set of variations in my head! The games and collaborations had unblocked my creativity and allowed me to compose again.

Unbelievably fun! So many opportunities to play off the page, think outside the boundaries, try, stretch, invent and collaborate. Thanks for all the creativity triggers!
