Trevor Stewart studied viola and music composition and performance at Wichita State University. Since 1998, Trevor has been playing the Chapman Stick, a unique musical instrument invented in 1969 by Emmett Chapman. See http://www.trevorstewartmusic.com/ for music performance videos and more.
Trevor also performs as part of the duos “Mirror Images” and “World Culture Party.”
We love Trevor’s program. We learned so much.
