Can I play on public pianos for free?

Can I play them anytime I want?
Typically, yes. Most public pianos are not guarded or locked up when they’re located in open areas like a sidewalk.
Are these instruments available during the winter?
Yes! Some might be stored away until the springtime, but many will stay out all year long. The only exception is if it’s very cold and there is an impending snowstorm; the piano might be moved inside to avoid damage.
How long do public pianos typically stay in one place?
That depends on a number of factors, like how often it gets vandalized or whether there are plans for an upcoming construction project. Most will remain out until someone decides they need to move them somewhere else.
Do public pianos have to be tuned?
Yes, the instruments are usually maintained, so they sound nice when played. Please note that this doesn’t mean each piano is always in perfect tune, though!
Who owns public pianos?
That can vary. They might be owned by the city government, a private organization like an arts center or school, they could belong to someone who lives in the neighborhood (maybe even you!), or perhaps no one at all!
I don’t think I play too well yet, can I still use a public piano?
Of course. The pianos are meant for people of all skill levels to enjoy, from beginners to professionals!
I have never seen a public piano where I live, what can I do?
We recommend talking to your local government and asking them if they would be interested in getting a public piano for the community.
