Once referred to as a high-school prodigy by a prestigious professor, Drew Steven (at the age of 17) developed a history breaking piano performance innovation. Piano harmonics, or overtones, are created when Drew strikes a key while at the same time reaching into the piano and touching the vibrating string at an exact nodal point. This live performance method requires both extraordinary precision & motor skills in addition to a delicate touch. Piano harmonics are performed live without preparation to the piano of any kind.
Accompanied by Minnesota WCCO news in 2010, Drew debuted piano harmonics with his "Piano Sonata No. 1 in C Minor" in the form of a benefit concert raising over $3,300 for Kids Against Hunger. Later In 2012, Drew produced his own video in which he recorded himself performing the first movement of the piece.
In addition to his work as a pianist, Drew has taught an array of other instruments and holds experience running his own comprehensive recording studio since the age of 14.
Today Drew is in progress on his second Piano Sonata as well as various other projects.
