Hi,
I lived in Chicago for a number of years and celebrated my 50th b'day by buying a bodhran and taking classes at the Old Town School of music. Mike Austin, our teacher, was great as was the group and only because I moved did I leave it.

Out here on the east coast where there's a failure of high ceilinged apartments, and really grumpy tenants and strict rules, I have nearly lost my ability to play at all.

Anyone else have trouble finding practice areas? Any creative suggestions for where to find them?

Try a park in nice weather. I would bet you will draw an audience! You do not have to be good, just different.

A friend of mine contacted the local churches and asked if they would let her practice in one of their rooms during times when there was no service. One of the churches replied, and she is now happily playing her Cello in one of the basement rooms.

Thank-you! I'm very close to the Unitarian church. I'll ask my friend who goes there--might even be able to get a group!

I did try the park once, Patch. The deer gave me a look like--do you REALLY have to do that :-). I'm close to a beach, though, and you're suggestion made me realize there's no critters to bother there.

Again, thanks to you both!

Also--sorry this landed in Celtic hearts--I know it should be in something like General Discussion (where I thought I'd put it, but then I couldn't find it.)

thanks for responding so I know where it landed. (Still working on my navigation skills.)
