Lewis University to Become All-Steinway School
ROMEOVILLE, IL – This fall, the Department of Music at Lewis University will begin the process of becoming an All-Steinway School with the purchase of three brand new Steinway pianos. Over the next eight years, Lewis University will invest approximately $500,000 in the purchase of new pianos. It will consistently provide music students with current, quality equipment to learn on.
“The All-Steinway School program is about much more than owning the world’s best pianos,” says Dr. Mike McFerron, chair and professor of music. “It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing the best tools of the trade for our students as Steinway & Sons is recognized as the world leader in the production of concert-quality pianos.”
The Department of Music at Lewis University is distinctive by opening all music classes to all majors, and not requiring an audition for music majors. Regardless of major, students can participate in ensembles and take vocal and instrumental private lessons for college credit. There are several vocal and instrumental ensembles that are open to students in all majors. Students who take private applied lessons work with instructors who are capable of teaching beginner to advanced college students. Vocalists and instrumentalists looking for a private teacher will find instructors to take them to the next level of music performance, whatever their instrument or level of achievement.
