The Pros & Cons of Playing the Piano
Updated: 3 days ago
Playing the piano is one of the most impressive skills anyone could ever possess. Based on a survey (the source of the survey should be noted), generally, 25 percent of Americans know how to play the piano. If you’re a pianist, congratulations for being part of the 25% of American piano players!
As with sports, playing the piano has its pros and cons. For example:
✔ It sharpens your focus which increases brain power. See more information here.

✔ Enhances your emotional intelligence
✔ Increases the capacity of your memory
✔ It teaches you to be patient with yourself
✔ It improves time management skills
✔ Enhances creativity
✔ Builds self-confidence
✔ Increases your circle of friends as it allows you to connect with other piano players
✔ A good Piano can be expensive
✔ Unlike many other instruments, the piano is bulky and cannot be easily transported
✔ It requires lots of practice to get good at it
✔ Long periods of time at the piano can cause pain or strain on the eyes, neck and back.
While piano playing brings much joy, it also causes strain on the eyes, neck and back for both young and adult pianists. However, pianists no longer have to suffer with such issues while playing piano. The Grand Stand, designed and patented by Dee Nilsen of Edinburg, VA, is a music stand for piano designed to rid the strain on the eyes, neck and back.
More about the Music Stand for Piano
Dee Nilsen, CEO of Grand Stand for Piano, started playing piano late in life. She struggled a lot to read the music because she wears bifocals. She had to tilt her head up to see out of the bottom of her glasses. This caused her eye and neck strain - piano players can relate to this for sure!
After learning from her piano teacher that many adults and children struggle to read the music when it sits up high, Dee Nilsen decided to make a piano music stand that would alleviate this problem.
After several months in the design stage, Dee came up with a final product and made close to two dozen to debut at the Virginia Music Teachers Association Conference. Piano teachers were excited about the Grand Stand. Dee sold out and left with a list of customers to make and ship the Grand Stand to.
To date, the Grand Stand for the piano, which is America’s 1st & #1 ergonomic music sheet holder is becoming increasingly popular. It is being used by piano players across the United States and around the world.
