I have been playing the piano for about 30 years and taught for a while. I now work as a teaching assistant and also have a background Product design. I wanted to enhance the lives of musicians so I developed SoleMate Piano Footstool.

SoleMate is a footstool that assists students with their posture whilst playing the piano. It has three different heights which are easily accessible by simply turning it over. SoleMate is light and portable and is a beautiful accessory on a stage.
