Durham University is delighted to announce that we have joined the ‘All-Steinway’ Initiative, pledging to install a further 58 Steinway pianos in our practice rooms across the University and its 17 colleges. The pianos are set to arrive on Wednesday 27 April 2022, on what will be a momentous day for all keen musicians across the University. This significant upgrade to our current equipment will further contribute to the already unrivalled music education experience in Durham.


Steinway & Sons is a world famed brand of excellence, and the leading manufacturer of pianos, known not only for creating some of the finest instruments in the world, but also collaborating with world-renowned concert halls and artists. Links with Steinway Hall in London, and Steinway’s venues in New York and Hong Kong open up exceptional opportunities for our students globally.
