For 21 years McEwen Walters has been a beloved member of the Settlement Music School faculty, teaching piano and organ lessons as well as taking care of many of the plants that live at our Mary Louise Curtis Branch! With all that Mr. Walters has contributed to our school over the years, we are absolutely thrilled to share the news that he is an official recipient of the Steinway Top Teacher Award!
The Steinway Top Teacher Award is given to acknowledge not only, “artistry, quality, and exquisite musical expression,” but in the case of Mr. Walters, Steinway & Sons specifically mentions, “the care and commitment with which you approach your piano students,” adding that, “The young people who develop their craft under your guiding hand will be the artists who fill our future with music.”
We can say confidently that we have seen, first-hand, Mr. Walters’ inspiring impact on his many students, and we are proud to have him as part of our Settlement Music School community.
Congratulations Mr. Walters!
