Yes, you will need something for your child to play on. You don’t need to spend a lot of money; an electronic keyboard is fine. Please make sure that it has weighted keys, that you need to press down to make a sound. You will also need a sustain pedal.
If you live in the Colac/Otway region of Victoria, we recommend the Roland FP10 Electronic Piano at Toshco Music, 90 Murray Street, Colac (the former Cow Lick Bookshop).

There are often second-hand pianos for sale on Facebook and Gumtree. Make sure they are in good condition and if they are an acoustic piano, have been tuned regularly.
