Write a song and tell us why you should win Jamie's piano!

Closing date extended to 31st October 2020

Yamaha believes that everyone has the potential to make waves in the world. Now, more than ever, the world needs the positive power of music, with its unique ability to bring communities together, even when they're required to remain apart.

We seek to empower people to realise their creativity and make an impact through sound and music, just like Jamie does with his song writing, recordings and performances. A Yamaha piano is so much more than just an instrument, it’s the start of a journey in which players of all ages and levels of ability can tell their stories, connect with others and make lasting and uplifting impressions on people who hear their music. Go ahead and make an impact. Make a difference. Make waves.

To be in with a chance of winning this unique piano, entrants should write and record an original song telling the story of how their nominated good cause would benefit from winning the piano. This could be a school, a community organisation or charity, essentially any group that does great work in inspiring and making a great contribution to their local community.

The song should tell the story of how the piano will positively impact people’s lives; how it will inspire more music making, more enjoyment and more creativity. Songs will be judged on melody, composition, originality and lyrics.

If you collaborate with friends and colleagues on your song, please do so safely and in line with current social distancing guidance. Good luck to everyone who enters this competition.
