AUXILIARY MUSIC RACK FOR PIANOS
Darline Evinger Fitchett, Denver, Colo.
Application March 29, 1937, Serial No. 133,548
3 Claims. (Cl. 234-180)
This invention relates to a child’s music rack
for pianos.
The usual music rack on a piano is positioned
at the proper height for adults and it is exceed5 ingly inconvenient for a small child to constantly
look upwardly toward the music thence downwardly toward the keys.
The principal object of this invention is, to
provide a portable folding music rack, which can
10 be easily placed on any piano to support the
music immediately above the piano keys so that
both the music and the keys will be conveniently
visible to a small child.
Another object of the invention is to so con15 struct the device that it can be easily folded into
a relatively small package that may be easily carried by a music teacher when giving lessons to
small children.
A further object of the invention is to provide
I5 bear against each other to maintain the mem
ber perfectly flat and horizontal over the hinge.
It is preferred to have the division I'I slightly
off-center so that when the rack is folded, as
shown in Fig. 3, one of the end blocks I6 will pass 5
the other.
Each extremity of the channel member and
each end block I6 is preferably covered with felt
padding I9 to prevent marring the piano finish.
The member I 5 is formed with a channel in its 19
top bordered by two longitudinally extending
beads 20 which hold the music in place. The
length of the device allows it to fit securely be
tween the two end walls I4 when the blocks I6
are resting on the keyboard blocks I3 of the piano. 15
It can be readily seen that the device can be
easily slipped into place over the key board with
out marring or damaging the piano and that it
will support the music at a position much lower
20 a child’s music rack which will position the music
forward over the keys so as to place it closer to
the child’s eyes and yet which will not interfere
with the full use of the keys for their entire
than the usual music rack.
20
While a specific form of the improvement has
been described and illustrated herein, it is de
sired to be understood that the same may be
length.
Other objects and advantages reside in the detail construction of the invention, which is designed for simplicity, economy, and efficiency.
These will become more apparent from the following description.
30
In the following detailed description of the invention reference is had to the accompanying
varied, within the scope of the appended claims,
without departing from the spirit of the invention. 25
Having thus described the invention, what is

Fig. 3 is a similar view in the folded position.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged View through the device
taken on the line 4_4, Fig. 2.
Fig. 5 is a similar view taken on the line 5_5,

a supporting block I6. The member I5 is pref-
erably divided, as shown at I'I, into two parts
which are hinged together by means of a suitable
bottom hinge I8. When in the extended position
