I recently got a new piano bench for my teaching studio, and I love it! I learned about Exemplar benches at the MTNA Conference last year. They had a booth set up in the exhibit hall and I immediately liked the benches. Finally, at the end of 2018 I was able to order one! They adjust up and down very easily using a totally different mechanism than most adjustable benches. I love how fast it is to adjust. I also like that there are numbered notches, so my students can find which one is comfortable and easily return to the same setting each week.

I think it’s important for us to make accommodations for our growing students so that they have a good technical foundation from the start. This bench definitely makes it easier to get them sitting at the right height. It feels very sturdy and I believe will last a long time.

The customer service from Exemplar was great! They let me know immediately that my order had been received and also sent updates when it shipped and was delivered. Be aware that prices on their website are in Canadian dollars, so the price is actually a little lower when converted to USD. I have the classic black version.
