"I would like to shamelessly promote Stephen Hill's brand new website which showcases his wonderful works for band and orchestra (and much more)! Conductors, pianists, and percussionists, head on over to Stephen's website. Personally, I look forward to programming "Saddle Up" on an upcoming clinic band performance.... dedicated to one of Mr. Hill's influential professors, the late (and highly revered) W. Francis McBeth!"
(Conductor, Performer, Clinician)
"It was our pleasure to have an opportunity to play through these fine compositions! They are enlightening, and challenging on so many levels. You have such a wonderful gift for melody. I look forward to programming them in the future."

"What a great addition to the repertoire list for Southern California Bands! Stephen Hill's music is well-crafted and fun to play."
Dr. Kenneth Meints
(Conductor, Orchestra Omaha)
"Stephen Hill is the rare composer who writes music for the mere pleasure of it. His music is innovative, rooted in deep compositional traditions, and enjoyable for my students to play!"
(Band Director, Calvary Chapel Schools)
"To my friends who teach concert band, string orchestra, and full orchestra, if you are in need of some "fresh" well written music check out the music of Stephen Hill. It is really great stuff. My North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble (nTyme) concert band is currently working on Yozawa a piece dedicated to Leonard Narumi. The string orchestra is working on Divergent Pulsations, and full orchestra will be working on Saddle Up! Stephen is also just a great guy too. He did a great clinic with the high school band students at Wildwood Institute of Music and Arts two years ago."
