Book the baby grand piano at Central Library

Are you practicing for your Grade 4 or higher Royal Conservatory of Music exam? 

The baby grand piano at Central Library is available for students to play in a casual setting, in front of a live audience. Students are invited to book a time to play the piano and practice their pieces before a competition or performance.  

 A few notes:

  • Student musicians are not paid and are asked to play full pieces.  
  • Practice sessions should be 30 minutes to an hour maximum.  
  • Because of the unpredictable use of the piano, we cannot ensure that the piano has been recently tuned before your booking. 
  • Multiple bookings are not possible due to the number of requests we receive and other events taking place in the reading lounge. 
  • Recitals from music schools are not permitted.

Piano availability

Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

If you are interested in booking practice time, please email music@kpl.org. No same-day requests.

Musicians using the piano in the library are partnering in our equitable access to music practices at KPL. Together, we can create a space that allows musicians to share their talents while offering an equal opportunity for everyone in the community to enjoy music.
