Temerty Medicine Cecil Yip Piano - Access and Guidelines

Acceptable Use Policy
The piano may only be played weekdays after 5:00pm and/or before 8:30am (consistent with the MSB cafeteria hours of operation). This is to minimize disturbance to classes and staff who have offices in the vicinity.

Please do not have any food or drinks on or near the piano.

Please do not share the combination or location of the piano locker.
