Prairie View A&M University is officially designated as an All Steinway School. The University is the 185th institution to become an All- Steinway school and will be the fourth Historically Black College/ University (HBCU) to receive the designation.
To receive All-Steinway School status, at least 90 percent of an institution’s pianos must be a Steinway or of a brand owned by the Steinway parent company. PVAMU has purchased 28 New York, hand-made Steinway pianos. The new inventory includes: seventeen practice room pianos; ten grand pianos; one Concert grand piano and one refurbished concert grand piano.
“Steinways are the finest pianos in the world. This is an important milestone for our Music program and for our institution as a whole. These pianos represent a tangible manifestation of our commitment to excellence and to ensuring that our students are comprehensively educated,” explained Dr. Danny Kelley, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences.
