Keyboard Kraze $500 Scholarship Contest

Welcome to Keyboard Kraze! At Keyboard Kraze we see ourselves as educators and researchers of all things music.

For us, knowledge and the ability to pass on this knowledge is extremely important.

Who Am I?

My name is Chris Senner and I am keyboardist/songwriter who has been writing music since the age of 15.

I was able to attend college where I studied piano performance for 3 years before I signed a major record label deal with Fueled By Ramen Records. For the following 4 years, I toured the country playing and learning more about music. Because I was fortunate enough to do this, I thought it would be a great opportunity to be able to give back to the community.
