To celebrate the release of the new AMEB Piano syllabus and Series 18 publications, AMEB and Kawai Australia teamed up to offer Australian pianists the chance to win one of two Kawai pianos.

Two prizes were on offer. Level 1 (Preliminary to Grade 4) entrants could win a Kawai ES110 portable digital piano or Level 2 (Grade 5 to Grade 8) entrants could win a Kawai K-300 upright piano.
