Recital Hall Use
Student use of the recital halls must be approved by the Department Head, and requires written endorsement of the applied instructor or other faculty member. Students are not permitted to use the recital hall without authorization. Visit the Department Office, FAC 330, for information.
Practice rooms should be reserved for student use via the weekly schedule posted on each door. Percussion students should contact Dr. Coulter to arrange for practice facilities. Students who have difficulty securing adequate practice time should consult with the Music Department Head. Piano majors and students approved by Dr. Tsai may obtain a practice room key from the Music Office.
The Fine Arts Center hours are 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM on weekdays, 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM on weekends. When the University is in session, music majors desiring to use practice facilities during times when the Fine Arts Center is normally closed should contact Campus Police for access. Only students on the approved Music Department access list will be admitted. Students are not permitted to teach private lessons in the practice rooms.
Students using University-owned instruments in ensembles, methods, or applied study are responsible for their maintenance and safe return. Instruments are assigned by faculty members of appropriate ensembles/classes:
MUS 2220, 2230, 2240 (Instrumental methods), 0030 (Marching Band), MUS 2210 (String Methods) - contact Dr. Erika Schafer
If an instrument or other equipment checked out to a student is lost or damaged, the student is responsible for its replacement or repair and his/her UTC account will have a hold placed on it for the required amount. This includes sheet music, parts, scores and choral octavos and uniforms issued to students as part of the course.
Piano, computer, or audio equipment maintenance requests should be submitted to the Department Office.
A limited number of instrument lockers are available for student use. Students in need of a locker may obtain an application in the Department Office. Assignments will be made each fall by the Department Head. Students will be notified of their locker assignments no later than the end of the first full week of classes. If a locker becomes available during the year, the Department Head will assign the locker to a new occupant based upon applications already received.
Locks are provided by the Department. Locks and contents of lockers must be removed no later than the Friday prior to Commencement (Graduation). Students graduating in December must vacate their lockers before the Monday following Commencement. After these deadlines, lockers will be opened and contents disposed.
