Steinway Boston grand piano “a beautiful instrument to play”

The music department at ACG Strathallan has acquired a Steinway Boston grand piano, renowned in music circles for its high-quality craftsmanship and tone quality.

The piano will allow students to make and record music to a high standard and allow the school to host external examinations, and music workshops and masterclasses with visiting artists, said music teacher Bruce Wilson.

“With more and more demand by our students for quality accompaniment, there was need for an instrument like this for professional accompanists, teachers and solo performers to use in recital programmes,” he explained.

Mr Wilson said the piano was a pleasure for talented students and local teachers to perform on. “It’s a beautiful instrument to play and being a graduate pianist myself, I most certainly enjoy now playing demanding music for our student recitals on such a quality instrument.”

The piano is fondly nicknamed ‘Black Robin’ in honour of former principal Robin Kirkham.
