Stephan studied music composition at Elmhurst College, working closely with choral and chamber ensembles as he learned create music idiomatic to their skills and reflective of their individual characters. There and in the years since Stephan has learned to combine this disciple-like attitude with his love for story-telling, and has a special interest in creating music that speaks from and to the hearts of those for whom he created it.
Some of his music is published with Alfred Music, and has been performed in concerts and competitions across the states. Other works have been performed in recitals, concerts, and ceremonies (including weddings) in America and in Europe. But consistent across all of his work is the sincere desire to capture and reflect the human spirit, and to inspire it's growth.
Stephan hopes you will consider his unique skills and is eager to help you put that extra, personal touch on your wedding ceremony! Why settle for the traditional when you can have something new?

Stephan was a phenomenal composer to work with. He really incorporated my husbands and my character into the piece. There was purpose behind every note that he wrote. It was absolutely perfect! I loved walking down the aisle to "Sunflowers and Sycamores".Sent on 10/19/2016

When I approached Mr. Carlson with a request to play the piano in our ceremony, the conversation evolved and actually ended up with Mr. Carlson offering to write completely original music for our special day. The result was breathtaking. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and personal touch to the ceremony. I feel that I am forever indebted to Stephan and his creative work. On top of that, he took every comment, suggestion, and word that I spoke into consideration as he skillfully and humbly wove those elements into the finished product. I got way more than I paid for because I chose to trust this up and coming composer. When Stephan Carlson is composing movie scores for the Big Screen I'll be able to tell my future children, "Yeah, he composed original music for your mom's and my wedding!".Sent on 03/12/2013
