Whether you want to learn to play the organ or you’d rather just listen to a piano playing on its own, there are a couple of Facebook Marketplace listings here on the SouthCoast that can help you out.

First, there is a free electric Hammond organ for pickup in Fairhaven.

As described by the poster Michael, it “works well for its age” but is “very heavy.” It also comes with the bench.

The organ is listed in fair condition, and judging by the photo, it looks like someone could get going on some lessons right away. I recommend learning Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.”

If you can nail that one, it might be the only song you can play that the neighbors will never complain about hearing.

Bonus points if you can master the entire 17-minute version.

Maybe learning to play the organ isn’t for you, but you still like the sound of music filling your home. In that case, you may want to grab this free player piano in Fall River.

The poster Nicholas listed it as a Lord & Co. player piano. The foot pump does need repair, he said, and although it might be a little costly to find someone that can still repair a player piano, it will be well worth it once you do.

You can also go to most local antique stores and find some of the paper rolls that have songs for the piano to read and play.

Pro tip: invite some people over but don’t tell them that your new piano is a player piano. Just sit down, start the music, and mime the action on the keys as they automatically depress.

You’ll look like you’re ready for Carnegie Hall without any practice.
