We have teamed up with Yamaha Music UK and are giving listeners the chance to bid on a brand new Yamaha Digital Grand Piano in polished ebony.

And that’s not all, you will also have the very special opportunity to have a one hour private piano lesson with multi award winning pianist Stephen Hough!

On a mutually agreed date, you will enjoy a 1:1 lesson in London with one of the most engaging live performers of this generation.

The piano, a CLP-695GP, is Yamaha's flagship CLP Clavinova. Combining an exquisite grand piano cabinet with state-of-the-art technology, it delivers unprecedented sound quality and luxury.

Featuring Yamaha’s unique GrandTouch keyboard alongside the sound of the world-renowned Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grands, CLP-695GP offers an unrivalled grand piano experience. Lose yourself in the sound of Yamaha's finest concert grand.

The CFX has been captured using binaural sampling techniques for a truly unique and immersive headphone experience. Not only that, but the Clavinova can also be used as a full wireless speaker system thanks to Bluetooth audio streaming and Spruce Cone speakers made from the same wood used in Yamaha grand piano soundboards.
