Casio America, Inc. has announced it is once again joining forces with the Dallas Songwriters Association (DSA) to sponsor the 26th Annual Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest. Each year, the DSA offers amateur songwriters from around the world the opportunity to share their music writing talents with industry professionals and compete to win over $5,000 in grand prizes.
The contest is open, and this year, Casio is offering the grand prizewinners of the contest their own Privia PX-350 digital piano.
“The Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest is one of the longest running international songwriting contests for amateur songwriters, and Casio is excited to be a part of this great tradition once again," said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instruments Division. “The DSA Song Contest runs parallel to Casio’s mission of providing innovative musical instruments to those who have a passion for music, and encouraging musical creativity among consumers.”
The PX-350 is part of Casio’s Privia digital piano line and comes equipped with Casio’s proprietary AiR technology, which aims to redefine the digital piano experience with richer and more genuine sounds. The keyboard features simulated ebony and ivory textured keys and an 88-note Tri-sensor scaled hammer action to capture the dynamics of a performance with speed and accuracy. The combination of the keyboard’s action and sound engine provides a level of detail, nuance and expression that delivers a grand piano experience. The PX-350 is currently available at select music dealers nationwide for an MSRP of $1,099.99.
