Always passionate about music, Stutte composed choral, ensemble and piano pieces for various events and occasions and continued to study and practice. In 2002, he decided to seriously enter the field of theatrical music and worked with the executive director of the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center to produce his first show, “Nap!” in 2003 at a small university theatre in suburban Chicago.
