The Steve Schenkel Home Page...

Welcome to my home page. I am a guitarist, educator, and composer in the st. louis area. My specialty is jazz, although I love all kinds of music. I play regularly for the St. Louis Municipal Opera and the Fox Theater Orchestra. I also do free-lance work with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Opera Theater of St. Louis, and the Repertory Theater of St. Louis...I do most of my jazz playing on the faculty concert series at Webster University. 


I have been teaching at Webster, which is in a suburb of St. Louis, since 1980. I teach film scoring, jazz theory, jazz improvisation, and the history of rock and roll

I also compose music for industrial and promotional films, public television programs, and multimedia installations. I wrote the music that is heard in the multimedia show that runs throughout the day underneath the Gateway Arch in St. Louis; even the ride to the top and down again has a soundtrack. My music has appeared on the soundtrack of many PBS programs as well as on a number of other films.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will look around a bit, and perhaps drop me an email.
