The Keyboard Charitable Trust


The Trust helps young keyboard players with the transition from formal studies to a fully professional life.

Young keyboard players wishing to apply should have a comprehensive repertoire of sufficient breadth, depth and imagination to be able to responsibly embrace international professional career opportunities. They should not normally be First Prizewinners of the major International Piano Competitions who have already been awarded multiple international performances.

We welcome applications from pianists, organists, harpsichordists, fortepianists and players of any other acoustic keyboard instruments.

How to Apply


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and a long waiting list for auditions, applications to the Keyboard Trust are currently CLOSED.

We will re-open applications when additional audition slots are available.

Any applications submitted during this period will be kept on file and considered when applications re-open.

Please check back here for updates to the application process.
