Dr. Song inducted into Hall of Fame
Astoria, New York—Local piano teacher Dr. Hyeyoung Song, a Coppell resident, has been inducted into the Steinway & Sons Music Teacher Hall of Fame, a prestigious designation recognizing the work of North America’s most committed and passionate piano educators. She was nominated for the Hall of Fame by Steinway Piano Gallery Texas.
Dr. Song has long established herself as a “pianist of exquisite sensitivity, with a warm, expressive, yet powerful tone.” Her collaboration with Steinway Piano Gallery Texas and Weatherford College has afforded her the opportunity to create opportunities for the Weatherford community and especially for her home country of South Korea.
Steinway Piano Gallery Texas nominated Dr. Song for the Hall of Fame to recognize her compassion for excellence as a performer and educator who has set the standard for the next generation of pianists and music educators.
This fall, 67 teachers from the United States and Canada were inducted into the Steinway & Sons Music Teacher Hall of Fame with special events hosted at the historic Steinway factory in New York City. Teachers were selected for this award for their outstanding instruction and leadership in acoustic piano education and their commitment to teaching in their community for over a decade. Each teacher inducted into the Hall of Fame is part of the Steinway Teacher & Educational Partner Program (STEP) and 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,” Gavin English, president of Steinway & Sons Americas, said. “We are very proud to work with the talented music educators inducted this fall into the Steinway & Sons Music Teacher Hall of Fame. These teachers foster passion, creativity, and discipline in the next generation of piano artists. Their work deserves the highest praise.”
The Steinway Teacher & Educational Partner Program (STEP) is designed for piano instructors and affiliated studio partners to enhance their relationship with Steinway & Sons and to further support their piano instruction. By becoming a Steinway Teacher & Educational Partner, teachers receive several benefits and unique opportunities including access to workshops, concerts, masterclasses, and various special events as well as the opportunity for the prestigious designation of being inducted into the Steinway & Sons Music Teacher Hall of Fame.
