Dr. William Carr Named Top Music Teacher by Steinway & Sons
Immaculata University is pleased to announce that William Carr, Steinway Artist, professor of music and chair of the Music Department, has been named one of the “Top Music Teachers” for 2017 by Steinway & Sons. Dr. Carr was nominated for this prestigious award by Jacobs Music, the only Steinway & Sons dealer representative for Southeastern and South Central Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
“To be named as one of the best music teachers in the country by Ron Losby, CEO and president of Steinway & Sons, is indeed an honor. To be nominated by officials from Jacobs Music, who work with the region’s best teachers at all educational levels, is an example of how music transcends all boundaries,” states Carr. “I am deeply honored to be recognized.”
Carr studied piano at the Juilliard School with Adele Marcus as well as at Temple University, and he earned his doctorate in piano at the Catholic University of America with Marcus. He continued his piano studies in Germany and Austria with concert pianist, Paul Badura-Skoda. In 2005 he was named a Steinway Artist, a prestigious title that recognizes the most exceptional music performers in the world. With a doctorate in piano and a master’s in international business relations from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Carr uses his unique training in both disciplines to offer corporate seminars on creativity to schools of business and to Fortune 500 companies. He has given these seminars at Columbia University, Dartmouth College, the Wharton School, and at more than 30 corporations in the U.S. and abroad. He has taught at Immaculata for 25 years, and in 1998, he was honored as the first recipient of the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award. For more information about Carr, visit www.williambcarr.com.
