Desire to Inspire. Educate to Succeed.
The dedicated faculty and staff of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music believe “Excellence in Action” means providing our students with the best opportunities to succeed. Becoming an All-Steinway School is one way that we can help our students achieve their goals.
More Students, Better Students
The Hugh A. Glauser School of Music already attracts high quality students and has a great reputation for providing an excellent education. Becoming an All-Steinway School will prove to prospective students that we are committed to their education. Most students narrow their educational options to a select few, and being an All-Steinway school could tip the scale in our favor. As the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music continues to grow, so will our reputation, which will then help us recruit the very best music students.
More Practice Time
Just as it is exhilarating to drive a luxury car that responds flawlessly to your every command, providing Steinway pianos to our students will take practicing to a new level of enjoyment for them. Steinway pianos respond to performers better than any other piano. When an instrument responds to in an amazing way, performers want to spend more time with that instrument. More student practice means more successful students.
Improved Faculty Support
Providing students with a great education begins with recruiting and retaining the best faculty members. The Hugh A. Glauser School of Music already has some of the finest musicians serving as faculty members, and becoming an All-Steinway School will show our commitment to them by providing the best instruments available. The All-Steinway distinction will afford us the opportunity to recruit and retain the very best teachers to work with our students.
Becoming an All-Steinway School will allow us to attract the very best guest artists to perform and provide masterclasses for our students. Some guest artists will not even agree to perform without a guarantee that they will have a top-quality instrument on which to play. With an All-Steinway distinction, we will prove that the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music is one of the premier music performance venues in Northeast Ohio.
