An active chamber music player, he is a member of the National Symphony Orchestra Brass Principals Quintet, the Theater Chamber Players of the Kennedy Center, and the University of Maryland Faculty Brass.

Dr. Stevens earned degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the University of Illinois, and Boston University, and pursued additional studies at Tanglewood and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. Conducting studies were with Gerhardt Wimberger in Salzburg and with Bernard Goodman and Walter Eisenberg in this country. Currently, he is the conductor of the Washington Symphonic Brass, a premier group of professional brass and percussion musicians from the Washington/Baltimore area.

Previously a full time faculty member at Oberlin, Boston University, and Ohio State University, Dr. Stevens is currently an Adjunct Professor at Catholic University and Artist in Residence at the University of Maryland. A frequent clinician and lecturer, he has been a faculty member for the Eastern, Rocky Mountain, Western, and International Trombone Workshops, as well as the Summit Brass Institute, the Rafael Mendez Brass Institute, and the National Orchestral Institute.
