The University of Texas at Tyler School of Performing Arts is a few steps closer to becoming an All-Steinway School, Dr. Martin Slann, College of Arts and Sciences dean, announced.
 
Steinway is the world’s leader in producing high-quality pianos for music education. With this designation, UT Tyler will offer the best instruments available for student practice, study and learning.
 
“We believe it will indicate a commitment to quality and enhancing the student experience,” said school director Dr. Michael Thrasher. “We also expect that it will help attract more music students to UT Tyler.”
 
The All-Steinway School Initiative for the School of Performing Arts is nearly complete. Opportunities to give towards the initiative are still available.
 
“The university only lacks $136,000 in piano equipment and $125,000 in an endowed scholarship needed to maintain and service the pianos,” added senior development officer Whitney King. 
 
Currently, there are about 186 All-Steinway Schools worldwide. Only a few are in Texas. Among All-Steinway school privileges, UT Tyler will have the right to reserve the Steinway auditorium in Manhattan for any university meetings, alumni events or other activities.
 
For more information about the initiative and to give, contact King, 903-566-7384 or wking@uttyler.edu.
