Music Stands are an important item for musicians. They help hold the music for students in a comfortable position and also aids with posture.
Many students and parents believe that music can simply be put on the floor on or a bed/chair or something similar. This is not a great option.
For a small cost, you can invest in a basic music stand that can be used for practice at home. There are many options for music stands, but for a beginner this does not need to be extravagant or expensive. A simple folding stand with a bag is all that is necessary. The portable option is helpful when going to a band camp or similar.
Visit your local music store for options. We recommend Turramurra Music.
