He spent several years in Copenhagen playing in restaurants, then in 1958 he passed an audition and joined the Royal Life Guards Band. He retired in 1993, after serving with the band for 35 years. During his career, he was assistant director and served as acting director. After retiring, he played in several Copenhagen orchestras, the Tivoli Band, and the Stævnets Orchestra at the Sports Park.
Stein composed or arranged a great deal of music for the Life Guards Band and also wrote several marches for the Danish Royal Family. Since 1993, he has been conductor of the 8th Regiment (Restored) Band, a professional band attached to the Tojhusmuseet as a living cultural bearer of Danish military music tradition and repertoire.
