Bradfield becomes an All-Steinway School

February 20, 2019

We are proud to announce that Bradfield College have entered a new partnership with Steinway & Sons, demonstrating our commitment to excellence in music.

Becoming an All-Steinway School allows the College to provide pupils in the Music Department with the best equipment possible for the study of music. All of our pianos, from the practice rooms to the Music Concert Hall will now be designed and manufactured by Steinway & Sons.

Music scholars Holly and Tom as well as our piano teacher and our Heads of Music, Admissions and Development were fortunate enough to be invited to the Steinway Factory in Hamburg, Germany to see the making of and most excitingly, choose our actual instruments.

During the tour, our pupils and staff learned how every Steinway for the last 100 years has been made in exactly the same manner from the type of wood which is grown under particular conditions, to the sound board and the adjustments of the keyboard beds that are all done by hand.

The partnership also cements a long-term relationship between the College and Germany with many of our international pupils having come from the country over the past 30 years.

We are very excited to be taking receipt of our Steinway Baby Grand’s later this academic year when an official reveal will be made.
