Solves a Problem.
April 23, 2021
I wanted a larger board than the usual small musical staff bosrds. After an internet search, luckily I found this one. Very pleased when It arrived at how durably and professionally made it is. It deoes what a whiteboard should do, erases cleanly and as a bonus, one side is the musical staffs, while th other side is blank whiteboard and usable as well.
For me the cost was reasonable as well.
  • Works well, two sided.
  • Cant think of any

I am extremely satisfied with the staff white boards. They are a great size for kids to work with and they are an excellent, sturdy material that wipes off easily.

The boards seem to be made of masonite material perhaps 3/16 thick.
I did not want flexible boards and these fit the bill. I bought 2 of these and gave them to 2 daughters who are home schooling their children.

Music Staff Lapboards
May 24, 2014
I love my music staff lapboards! My students use them at least once a week. They are learning how to write notation and note names. I also want to thank you for fixing my order. At first the incorrect lapboards were sent to me, I called customer service and I had the correct ones in 2 days! Plus you let me keep the plain ones. WOW! now that\'s a wonderful company. Thank you so much.

Great for student use
March 12, 2014
As a private piano teacher, I like to have my students use different kinds of methods to learn the basics of reading music. I really like these whiteboards as an additional tool. I have used them to demonstrate writing notes, and have also had students use them to write down notes and intervals as I dictate or play them. The size of the boards is easy for even young hands to hold, and there are enough staves to allow for quite a bit of writing before you need to erase. Using the boards is much easier than using staff paper when trying to visually write out a musical example or theory concept. The boards are sturdy and seem like they will last a long time. I highly recommend them.
