Chamber Music Rehearsals
Two chamber music rehearsal rooms are available in Memorial Hall for student chamber groups. They are equipped with grand pianos. You can schedule these rooms through the Scheduling Office during regular office hours. NOTE: STUDENTS SHOULD PROVIDE THEIR OWN MUSIC STANDS FOR REHEARSALS IN CHAMBER MUSIC ROOMS.
Solo Music Rehearsals (with or without accompaniment)
Practice rooms are available throughout Memorial Hall for solo rehearsals and rehearsals for voice or instrument with piano accompaniment. These rooms are available on a first-come/first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance. Some of these rooms are designated as piano practice rooms and are only available for piano students with keys.
Large Ensemble and Percussion Rehearsals
The large ensemble rehearsal rooms in Corbett Center (rooms 1340, 1402 and 1630) are available for large groups and groups requiring large amounts of percussion equipment. The choral rehearsal room (DVAC 100) is available for choral group rehearsals. Due to increased use by regularly scheduled classes and ensembles, availability of these rooms is very limited. All of these are locked rooms. To use them, you must work with a faculty member or graduate teaching assistant who can unlock the room at the appointed time and secure it after the rehearsal. For the security of our people and equipment, it is imperative that these rooms be secured after each use.
Opera/Musical Theater/Acting Rehearsals
The drama classrooms (rooms 4735 & 4755) near the TAPAA divisional office are available for student theatrical rehearsals. Out of consideration for others who use these rooms, please clear the rooms of all rehearsal props and costumes after each use. The larger TAPAA rehearsal rooms on the 3000 level are available only for projects sponsored by TAPAA departments and under the direct supervision of faculty, stage managers or graduate directing assistants.
To record for a competition or audition, you may schedule Watson Hall, the Master Classroom (MEH 3250), the chamber music rooms, or if you have a key, any of the large ensemble rooms. Students may reserve a maximum of two hours recording time per week; reservations can be made within two weeks before the desired recording time. Please plan rehearsals well before competition deadlines, as availability of these spaces is limited, and certain other activities are given priority. Also, please use your time in these spaces wisely. Rehearse in a practice room prior to the scheduled recording time so that you can get an excellent recording in only one or two takes.
