There are nine soundproofed and air-conditioned practice pods available for current students of the Faculty on a first-come, first-served basis. Each room has either a Yamaha U1Q upright piano or a Yamaha C1 5’3” grand.
We also have a larger purpose ensemble room, which is again acoustically isolated, and air conditioned and features a Yamaha DC7M4 Disklavier grand piano. The ensemble room can be booked for practices when not in use for teaching or events purposes.
