Does anyone know of a location where an experienced pianist (classical, 10+ years) can get some practice time in?  I just want to play around….I recently moved and had to sell my piano, now my heart and soul aches to play.  Any ideas?  Since we’re on this note (pun intended), can anyone recommend an instructor who does not charge $100 an hour for a lesson?  Thank you!

Wood glen hall in assisted living place on Foothill. Baby grand in decent shape . I’d imagine the residents would enjoy it!

I just acquired a 2002 Yamaha C3 from the estate of a friend's mother. It's tuned and ready to be played. I'm interested in having people come to my home and play for friends and family. Open to you rehearsing here occasionally as well. Montecito. Contact me to arrange a meeting in public first.

The luggage pickup area at the Santa Barbara airport has a piano for anyone's use. Entertain the travelers!

I've seen pianos in Cottage Hospital. My friend was in the hospital, and there was a piano in the lobby area on her floor.

There have been pianos placed in public, usually State Street as part of an arts and humanities project. This occurs every October. However I flew into Santa Barbara Airport on Wednesday morning, and there's a piano in the baggage claim area. I'm not sure how in-tune the piano is, but weary and anxious travelers would enjoy it.

All the semi-public pianos I know of are in schools/universities. You might check at the rec center downtown; there may be a piano in the ballroom and they're generally very nice about letting people sit in rooms that aren't in use. (I used to hang out there while daughter was in ballet class.) Also I've seen a piano in a common room at Wood Glen Hall, a (very friendly) retirement place on Foothill. Some place like that might like to have you come and play. There are lots of retirement communities in SB.
