Steven Alberti, born and raised in Reno/Sparks, has been playing bassoon for 25 years, and has been a member of the Reno Wind Symphony for eight years. Steven studied music performance at Indiana University and earned a Master’s of Music Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, Australia. While in Australia, Steven worked as a freelance musician, and was able to play with many of Australia’s top orchestras including the Sydney Symphony, Sydney Philharmonium Choir, and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
He also worked as a studio musician, recording music for movies, video games, and local artists. To supplement his freelancing, Steven began teaching for some local schools, and that’s where he discovered his passion for teaching. He has been teaching music to children for the last 11 years, and is the current owner of Step into Music, an early childhood music school, with over 50 students ranging from 6 months to 12 years.
Steven is incredibly excited to be a part of this organization, and the many generations of Nevada musicians involved. In fact, three of his former music teachers from middle school and high school are also current members of the Reno Wind Symphony.
