The rich tonal sonorities and touch sensitivity are the main reasons for my choice of the Steinway. It's an instrument that is able to express one's deepest emotions and is the perfect vehicle for human expression.
Considering the lifetime of pleasure a Steinway brings to the player, it's certainly a worthwhile investment.

The Essex Grand Piano 155 has a beautiful tone, resonance and touch that is perfect for my teaching studio.
I got my Essex Grand Piano 155 from Steinway in 2017, the year that I got married and was preparing to move into my husband's 4-room flat in the northern part of Singapore. My name is Dorothy Chia and I am a piano teacher for the past 28 years. They say, "love happens when you are not looking for it", that is what happened with the 2 loves of my life, marrying my husband and getting the Essex Grand Piano 155.
In my 28 years of piano teaching, I strongly believe that teaching on an excellent piano is of the utmost importance in my piano studio. Whether the student that I am teaching is a young beginner or a novice teacher, the experience of drawing out the most beautiful of musical tones must happen in the student's musical journey with me. The Essex Grand Piano 155 is the perfect size for a small living room, the size of a small apartment or 4-room flat. The tone sings at every register, neither too sharp nor too dull. The rich, mellow tones is perfect whether my piano students are playing a beginner piece such as "Mary had a Little Lamb" or my advanced students working on a Mozart piano sonata. The action of the keys on the Essex Grand Piano 155 is very responsive to the touch, something very important especially in teaching young musicians to listen and be sensitive to coax out varying dynamics out of the instrument. A large factor that contributes to the technical development of a young pianist is good technical control. This calls for much more than learning to curve one's fingers while playing the piano. The hours spent playing Czerny studies and Chopin etudes are fruitless, if the piano that the student is working on fails to deliver the tonal results of good technique. The student must be able to tell the difference of a beautiful tone and an ugly tone coming out of their fingerwork. For that, you need a sensitive, responsive and reliable piano, and I must say that Essex Grand Piano 155 has done a good job in this aspect.
The Steinway brand has a worldwide prestige and reputation. I trust that my purchase of the Essex Grand Piano 155 comes with the same reliability that Steinway piano company has built up over the years.
