Because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are limiting use of our spaces to those students who are:

  1. Preparing for an upcoming Junior or Senior Recital in order to fulfill the requirements of the music major.
  2. Have a need for access to a stable internet connection and isolated acoustic space for music lessons.
  3. In need of access to specialized music equipment (i.e., students enrolled in piano—including Music 2A-enrolled students—percussion, harp, and harpsichord lessons).

* Please note that the Music Building rehearsal and practice rooms are closed at this time. For more information on checking out an instrument, please see our Lockers and Instruments information page.
