Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand
I've used music stand from time to time, but only at open stages (one has to break in new material somewhere). It hasn't yet presented a barrier between the audience and me. If one covers with enough music stand joke there's no problem.
I never, however, use on in a paid performance. It looks unproffessional. It makes a performer appear ill-prepared to be on stage.
