Airport pianos you can play

Make Music Day may be over, but airports around the country are celebrating all summer long.

St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) will keep its piano with an octopus theme in Terminal 2 across from gate E33 through Labor Day.

STL has another, year-round “Play Me” piano in Terminal 1, at the Aero stage across from Starbucks. 

Over at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), they have a couple of new pianos as well.

On Make Music Day, June 21, LAX debuted two new Kawai G-40EP manual and self-playing baby grand pianos. These are located in the Terminal 4 connector and on the Upper Level of Terminal 7. 

Performances by airport employees, including the LAX Chorus, were part of the celebration.

We’re putting together a list of all U.S. airports with sit-and-play pianos. Help us out by letting us know where you’ve seen one – or played one.

    Hi! Does anyone know of any public pianos Phoenix, AZ, Albuquerque, NM, & El Paso, TX. Thank you so much!

  2. Checked with SFO – There’s a piano at Cat Cora restaurant – but not for the general public to play. Sorry!

    Any public pianos at the San Francisco airport? Or any places in the downtown area, Pier 13, & near China Town area?
    Thanks in advance for any info on this!

  4. I have videos of several people playing this piano. A young man playing queen, a fellow from Germany playing classical, a little girl playing chopsticks. We had a wonderful morning together and I got to teach two people a duet 🙂 It was the most fun I’ve had at an airport on July 31st, 2019. Thank you St. Louis!! Bonnie Bee in Southern Illinois

    FRA has at least one as well.

  6. Thanks for adding these. And how wonderful that you got to play at all those airport pianos. Any chance you have a video of your performance?

    Two airports I wanted to mention: MSP has a piano in baggage claim of Terminal 1 (Lindbergh) that invites you to play and “be discovered”. They also have another piano in the concourse area of Terminal 2 (Humphrey).

    WAW (Warsaw Chopin Airport) has a piano that anyone can play. Because Chopin.

    I have played all of the above.
