Support for piano (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

prop

'support' is the definition.
(prop is a kind of support)

'for piano' is the wordplay.
'for' becomes 'pro' (I've seen this before).
'piano' becomes 'p'.
'pro'+'p'='PROP'

(Other definitions for prop that I've seen before include "Support (a rugby player?)" , "Seize and hold firmly" , "Support; object used on stage" , "player involved in scrum" , "Support; rugby forward" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail, The Times and the Financial Times.
