music building

The Music Building houses the administrative offices for both the College of Fine Arts and the Department of Music. The original Music Building used to contain six practice rooms and one studio. With the recent $12 million renovation, the building now has a band hall, choral rehearsal room, 250-seat performance hall, teaching studios, faculty offices, outdoor concert stage and green, four classrooms (three are smart classrooms), Midi Lab, 18 practice rooms, lounge, and a large piano inventory.

Department of Music and College of Fine Arts Administrative Offices

The Music Building houses the administrative suites for both the Department of Music and the College of Fine Arts and offers generous studio space for our excellent full-time and adjunct music faculty members.

Teaching Studios/Faculty Offices

All full-time faculty are assigned individual studios/office spaces. These offices are spacious (280 square feet with 9-foot ceilings) and feature large operable windows, pianos where desired, generous storage and furniture as requested by faculty during the renovation. IT provides all faculty members with computers (desktop or laptop on a three-year rotation), peripheral devices, broadband Internet connections, and access to networked printers.

Classrooms

The instructional mission of the department is achieved in four primary classrooms. All of the classrooms are comfortable and well-equipped. MB211, MB212 and MB237 are fully-integrated smart classrooms. All classrooms are connected to our recording studio, allowing flexibility in the many recording projects that our students and faculty undertake during the academic year.

University Friends of Music Student Lounge

The University Friends of Music Student Lounge is located on the northeast side of the Music Building. The student lounge is a popular place for students to gather for lunch, informal meetings and study. Like the rest of the Music Building (and most of campus), the University Friends of Music Student Lounge has free Wi-Fi access.
