VHI1 Save The Music Foundation has chosen the Kawai CS10 Digital Hybrid Piano for its annual KEYS+KIDS program. This year, twelve K-12 public school music programs have been chosen from scores of candidates to receive a grant of a CS10 valued at $10,000.00. 

The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music programs in America’s public schools while raising awareness about the importance of music as a part of a child’s complete education. “A piano serves as the nucleus for many arts programs in a school, bringing together students, teachers, parents and community members for performances of all kinds” states Chino Okuizumi Feindler, compliance manager for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. “We selected the Kawai CS10 because it's the best of both worlds - acoustic sound and technologies of a digital piano! We often hear that schools don't have budgets to tune/maintain the pianos.  At the same time, we also hear that teachers want to have quality acoustic piano sound. The CS10 is a beautiful solution to these problems.”
