Loans of DS Keyboards

Universities and music schools are invited to apply to the DS Standard Foundation to borrow a DS Keyboard for up to 12 months.

Our current stock of keyboards (with attached actions) available include:

  • DS6.0® Keyboard to fit Yamaha C6 and C7 models

  • DS5.5® Keyboard to fit Yamaha C6 and C7 models

  • DS6.0® Keyboard to fit Yamaha C7 and C6 Disklavier

  • In addition, we have the DS6.0® Keyboard to fit the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano, available for short term loans for performances.

DS6.0® keyboards owned by the Foundation are currently on loan to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music at the University of Sydney and to the University of Memphis in Tennessee.

The Foundation is working with these institutions to help them develop a program of activities and events for the coming months, including demonstrations of the keyboards, recitals and seminars.  For details please see Upcoming and Recent Conferences, Performances and Other Events. 


Supporting Competitions That Provide Keyboard Choice

The DS Standard Foundation will consider supporting any competition that allows contestants to compete on DS Standard® sized keyboards.

The Foundation currently supports the Dallas International Piano Competition by contributing to keyboard preparation. This competition is the first in the world to provide DS5.5® and DS6.0®  Keyboards for contestants.


Showcasing DS Keyboards

The Foundation has supported the promotion of Dr Carol Leone’s CD: Change of Keys: One piano, three keyboards through Phoenix Classical Music. As a result the CD received much media exposure and airplay.
