Steven Speciale

Steven Speciale is a pianist, conductor, and educator. He currently teaches Electronic Music, AP Music Theory, and Choir at Loyola High School of Los Angeles while also serving as Director of Music for St. Andrew’s in Fullerton. He holds a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance from U.C. Irvine where he also did graduate work in piano and conducting. Further graduate studies were pursued at Loyola Marymount University.

Under Steven’s direction, the Loyola choir has sung at Carnegie Hall, Disney Hall, live on television from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Our Lady Queen of Angels Cathedral, and annually at the Lessons & Carols Service he founded at St. John’s Cathedral.

After establishing a thirty-seat Mac Music Lab at Loyola High School, Steven reinvented the music curriculum from text-based history survey courses to project-based portfolio classes. Since the revamp, students have composed David Tudor-inspired versions of Rainforest IV, written iPhone apps as standalone music compositions, built reactive music tables, invented Qr-code music trees, and many other electronic music/multimedia projects.
