“Music education has been a cornerstone of our historic company since the late 1800s, and today is no different,” said Gavin English, President of Steinway & Sons.
Ms. Siyuan Zhou, a local piano teacher from Great Neck, NY, has been inducted into the Steinway & Sons Teacher Hall of Fame, a prestigious designation recognizing the work of North America’s most committed and passionate piano educators. 2021 marks the second class of honorees, following the Hall of Fame’s inaugural class in 2019.
Ms. Siyuan Zhou graduated from Mannes College of Music and is the 1st Prize winner of the Second Chinese Composition Piano Competition. She co-founded the Growing Music Studio in 2018, which is the home and nurturing ground for aspiring musicians and attracts many of talented music students. Steinway Piano Gallery Long Island is the only company owned showroom on Long Island offering new Steinway pianos, factory rebuilt Steinway pianos and the Steinway-designed Boston and Essex pianos.
This fall, 44 teachers from the United States and Canada were inducted into the Steinway Teacher Hall of Fame with special events hosted at the historic Steinway factory in New York City. Each teacher inducted into the Hall of Fame was nominated by a Steinway & Sons showroom in the teacher’s home region. The teachers’ names are now displayed on a commemorative display wall inside the iconic factory.
“Music education has been a cornerstone of our historic company since the late 1800s, and today is no different,” said Gavin English, President of Steinway & Sons Americas. “We are very proud to work with the talented music educators inducted this fall into the Steinway & Sons Teacher Hall of Fame. These teachers foster passion, creativity, and discipline in the next generation of piano artists. Their work deserves the highest praise.”
