He continued his education at Oxford University studying music, and now divides his time between professional performances on the harpsichord, piano and conducting, and as Assistant Curator at the Finchcocks Collection of historical keyboard instruments in Kent.

As a harpsichordist, since he won first prize in the inaugural Broadwood Harpsichord Competition in 1993, he has performed extensively in Britain and Europe and has made recording for Radio 3, Classic FM, WDR, Radio France and Channel 4. Steven is currently Associate Music Director of Opera Restor'd.

Later this year, Steven will be conducting Handel's Orlando with the Dartington Festival Baroque Orchestra, Athalia with the Academie d'Ambronay and, for Raymond Gubbay Productions , Handel's Messiah and the Vivaldi by Candlelight, Mozart by Candlelight and Carols by Candlelight series throughout the UK and Ireland with performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall and Barbican in London, St David's Hall, Cardiff, Bridgewater Hall, Manchester and many others.

His editions of 17th and 18th century repertoire, used by a widening circle of artists, include John Eccles’ Semele, John Gay’s Beggars’ Opera, Claudio Monteverdi’s Poppea and the complete musical settings of the poetry of John Wilmot, the Second Earl of Rochester.

Steven’s first solo CD entitled Bellows, Jacks and Tangents, features the early instruments of the Finchcocks Collection and was described as “superb…wholeheartedly recommended” by Early Music Review. His second solo disc features the works of the German composer JCF Fischer and will be released later this year. Steven has made over thirty discs with other artists and orchestras.
