Though you must experiment with your own foot placement to find out how to best satisfy these three criteria, here are a few either / or aspects of foot placement that can help get you started. Once you begin to experiment with your setup, this one becomes a no-brainer. Unless you are very big or very inflexible, you should almost certainly be putting your feet behind your knees. If you are having trouble visualizing this position, it means that there will be less than a ninety-degree angle between your hamstring and calf, and that your knees will stick out farther towards the foot-end of the bench than your heels. Most people find that this is the best position for getting strong leg drive and maintaining a stable and tight position throughout the entire movement.
First, lets talk about size: Standard piano benches are usually 14 ½ wide by 30 long. These are designed for the solo artist to sit comfortably and perform. Duet piano benches normally measure the same width (14 ½) but are a bit longer in length (35) to accommodate two people sitting together at the piano. These are chosen most often by piano teachers for use with their students and families, so that a parent and child can sit easily together to learn and study.
The piano bench industry grew from the desire of piano manufacturing companies to focus solely on the manufacturing of pianos. The bench was, for the most part, an afterthought. Many bench companies got their start in the early 1900s by contracting with the piano manufacturers to offer benches in multiple styles that would match the exact finish and leg style of the piano being bought and sold. As the piano would move from owner to owner the bench would not always make the trip, creating a need for the replacement bench manufacturer. The other primary reason for the piano bench manufacturers existence is the fact that the piano bench is typically handled very roughly by many teachers and students alike. The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.
