On five levels (yes, there are elevators) you can find many class- and practice rooms as well as faculty studios and offices for the musicology, composition-theory, strings, brass, woodwinds, and music education divisions. The Music Building houses many helpful members of the administrative staff as well.
The Auditorium is often awash in sound—from buzzing trumpeters in the early morning, struggling methods classes and large history courses at more reasonable hours, and students happy for the warm acoustics that enhance their recitals still later in the day. A recording studio off the Auditorium is kept busy preserving nearly 400 concerts a year by the School’s students and faculty.
Venturing higher in the building, you can view or use the Experimental Music Studio, one of the largest facilities of its kind in the United States, the Computer Music Project, a new Yamaha digital piano lab, and a computer-assisted instructional lab CAMIL. The Music Building is open 7:00 a.m. to midnight (no entry after 10:00 p.m.) when classes are in session. Special schedules are posted on Music Building doors.
