Can you recommend a piano bench that will hold up to many children and adults every day without getting wobbly or falling apart? I see good recommendations for Jansen benches. The bench does not have to be adjustable, if that would make it sturdier.

IMO, Jansen artist benches are the best. They also make a standard wood top "School" bench that has a stretcher that ties the legs together; it's very sturdy.

I have found Jansen to be the best. I have an import artist bench on my Yamaha C5 at home and it's nice and comfortable; however, I'm not sure it would hold up with extended use as you describe.

We have a Jansen bench on the Kawai grand at church that previously came with a Baldwin M many years ago. This benc is still just as sturdy and comfortable as day one and it has a lot of use, with various adult pianists over the years.

With kids I would get a simple (not expensive) standard bench with replacable seating. To keep it sturdy just make sure the bolts are tightened up regularly. I think adjustable is a requirement for piano playing though ;-)
