The Grand Stand reduces eye strain, neck and back pain, and eases page-turning by lowering music books, sheet music, iPads, and tablets down closer to the pianist.
Perfect on symphony pianos for stage performance! As noted by Nashville Symphony principal keyboardist Robert Marler, who used the stand during a Gala with the famous composer John Williams conducting his own music: "It helps one to see over the music to see the conductor as well as lowering the level of the music for easier reading. The symphony is going to purchase one to stay at the hall."
Grand Stand Music Holder Helps Ease Neck Pain
The Constant Pain is Gone
"Because the music stand was so high, the constant pain in my neck while practicing became troublesome enough that I thought I might have to get rid of my baby grand.
In despair, I sent a google inquiry: can I do anything to lower my music stand? - and was amazed to read about the Grand Stand for Piano. Within a few days of ordering, I had it installed (simply placed it over the lamp attachment on my music stand) and felt immediate relief.
It was like a miracle for me! I love the piano and now I can enjoy it again without distress! (and because the music is at eye level, I can also see the notes more clearly!)"

Church pianists struggled to see the music clearly.
The Grand Stand is " . . . perfect and has been a pleasure to use.".
The Grand Stand for Piano has been an answer to my prayers! I am a church musician and play on a Yamaha Clavinova CV-208. I've struggled for years trying to see the music clearly.
I wear progressive bifocal lenses, but for playing the piano, I wear single-vision glasses when playing (similar to what you would wear for computer use). The style of the CV-208 places the music much farther back than normal.
I tried a lens prescription set for that distance, but it just didn't work as well as expected. It was also difficult to reach the music to turn the pages. I realized I just needed something to bring the music closer to me.
My internet research brought me to the Grand Stand for Piano! Dee was so helpful with her suggestions as to which size to purchase. After a few measurements, I decided on the 12-inch. It's perfect and has been a pleasure to use. I wish I had it 10 years ago!
The Grand Stand is very well made and should last a very long time.
So if you're struggling to read music due to your bifocal glasses or for whatever reason, I would suggest trying the Grand Stand. Thank you, Dee, for all your help!

Avoid Piano Playing Injuries
"Music teachers world over often plead with their students, at any age, to avoid looking at their hands as much as possible.
One of the worst habits a sitting musician can acquire would be to pull their head back and down to look at notes on the page, or, pull their head forward and down; For example, to look at hands moving over the keyboard.
Untaught use of musicians’ eyes often brings bad posture, beginning early unfortunately for sitting musicians reading music. Unidentified poor use of musicians’ eyes over time often leads to serious neck pain, can result in an injury as well.
Less known, this very bad habit for musicians' struggling to achieve overall good coordination can bring a glitch, as every Alexander Technique Teacher knows.
Dee's GRAND STAND IS an early "injury prevention" tool for sitting musicians, and, can make a start on a road less traveled for musicians to recover good overall coordination given to all of us as toddlers. Dee can almost guarantee her genuine article as MEANS WHEREBY for music teachers to introduce ‘safe sound’ lesson for music students."

LEARN WHAT GRAND STAND MUSIC HOLDER OWNERS HAVE TO SAY . . .
"Hi, Just wanted to let you know that I am loving the Grand Stand. I had struggled with all kinds of expensive progressive eyeglasses, costing thousands of dollars. All that, so I could see my music without looking up so high. I never looked forward to practicing because of this.
I had 2 rounds of prednisone shots in my neck in the past, so I didn't need any extra problems to add to that. Now, I am so happy to practice without suffering.
I had always thought about inventing something that would work like this, but I'm so happy I could just find this on the Internet and simply buy it. And thanks for assisting me in choosing the right size." Grand Stand is used on the Yamaha Avant Grand N2 digital piano.
"I received my Grand Stand a few days ago. I am using it for myself when I practice and it does make it much easier to read with my eye problems. I have also used it for some of my younger students, bringing the music much closer to them.
My little six-year-old student is so excited that now she can play on the "big" piano (Yamaha grand) instead of my keyboard. I will certainly recommend it to anyone who would benefit from the use of the Grand Stand.
At our monthly DEMTA (Douglas Elbert Music Teachers Association) meeting this week I will mention my purchase and share your information with them."
Peggy Gregory NCTM
"I use your music rack for myself (with my bifocals), my husband (who loves it--he also has bifocals), my Grandmother student (who no longer complains that she can't see the music) and my 6-year-old beginner--the music is just at her eye level.
I have dreamed of such a music rack for years, wishing someone would invent it, and, voila! you did, and I love it."
