Music and Composition

Allan's artistry and love of music
is obvious in performance.


Allan comes from Boulder, Colorado, from a musical and artistic family that included circus musicians, band leaders, symphonic performers and fine artists. He majored in trumpet performance at the University of Colorado, then studied composition with Cecil Effinger, a peer of Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copeland in the Boulanger composition salon of Paris.

Switching to piano as his main instrument, he did graduate work at the University of Wyoming withWerner Rose and and Charles Willman, a former student of Claude Debussy.Turning down an opportunity to attend Eastman, Allan chose to go to work as a performer, spending several years with successful dance, rock, and jazz ensembles. In 1988 he begana solo career, becoming a cocktail pianist and singer in five star resorts in Vail and Aspen, Colorado,as well as venues in Copenhagen, Quebec City, and several cruise ships. During his years in Vail he shared the stage with many well known performers such as Ray Charles, Judy Collins, Tom Petty, and John Denver, also accompanied singers from the New York Met and the Central City Opera, and performed with ensembles from the New York Philharmonic. He continues to perform as a jazz and new classical pianist and singer, bandleader, and as an accompanist in Colorado and Oregon.

After twelve years and thousands of engagements, He founded Green Shadow Music to publish his recorded compositions, placing many works with music libraries and production companies in Los Angeles and New York. Allan uses real performances in all his recordings, including many live players, avoiding letting computers perform via midi. When using samples, such as his Vienna strings, he uses a breath controller for performing the parts to create realism and the human touch.In addition, Stuart has released six solo and seven ensemble albums, signing with Eroica Classical Recordings in 2007 for distribution of his new classical piano works and orchestrated material. Currently he works in a production studio in Oregon and his solar powered Lyftwyn studio near the head waters of the Rio Grande in Colorado.
