Oral History Information
Bill Youse is proud of the fact that his grandfather, George, worked in the Steinway & Sons piano factory on Long Island as did his father before Bill joined the company in 1973. Bill's first job was actually the summer before when he would cut the grass. He was able to work alongside his father for 17 years until his dad retired in 1990. Since 2005, Bill has been working alongside his son, Michael, who carries on the tradition of a Youse factory worker at Steinway!
