As a student progresses to a more advanced level they will benefit from one of these benches. Not only is the bench more comfortable, it's height is adjustable which is extremely important. Sitting at the correct height while playing the piano can have a profound effect upon your playing.
Although, how tall should a piano bench be? A standard Upright Piano Bench is generally 30" wide x 19" high and is used with all sizes of upright pianos from 36" high to 52" high. Some smaller Spinet pianos look nice with the 25" wide Piano/Keyboard Benches.
Furthermore, why do piano benches have no backs?
There is a reason why piano benches do not have backs. Sliding forward, so that the legs are completely free and not necessary to stabilize the torso is very important for piano playing. Office chairs are not good for this, because they are not level.
How do I choose a piano bench?
When selecting a particular style and type of piano bench, here are some factors that you should take in to account in order to make right choice:

Dating an antique piano stool comes down to recognizing certain style features. For instance, if you have a ball and claw foot stool with glass balls similar to the one above, it likely dates to the early 1900's or late 1800s. Victorian antique piano stools may feature wrought iron feet as well.
While sitting at the piano the bench should be high enough so that the arms will rest comfortably on the keys. The arms should be relaxed and about horizontal with the floor. The wrist should be slightly bent lower that the knuckles but with out resting on the key slip in front of the keys.
