Practice Room Policies

BassoonistsWeigel Hall Practice Rooms

Practice rooms on the second floor of Weigel are available by key access only, and may be used only when the building is open (see Facilities). Rooms may be reserved for the semester. They may also be used on a first-come, first-served basis, when available.

A $5 cash deposit is due when a key is checked out, and is returned to you with the return of the key. Non-music majors are not allowed to have keys to any of these rooms.


  • Practice rooms can be reserved at the beginning of each semester and will be available to the designated student at their assigned time throughout the entire semester. Sign-ups will begin Monday during week #2 of each semester. Sign-up days are based on seniority, with preference given to piano majors. Email Production Manager Tim Donel at for more information. Or, by appointment: Weigel Hall, room 122 between 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
  • Hours that are not signed out by anyone will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • IMPORTANT: The School of Music has a 15-minute rule. If a student does not show up for his/her scheduled time within 15 minutes, the room is forfeited for that hour and can be used by another student. However, if the student has reserved more than one hour, s/he can reclaim his/her room at the next hour.

There are two Smart Music Labs in Weigel Hall that can be accessed with your BuckID. These labs house computers and Smart Music software for students’ use. To gain access to the labs, please e-mail Professor Kinney at with your BuckID number.

Hughes Hall Practice Rooms

Practice rooms on the 4th floor of Hughes Hall are available to music majors and are unlocked during regular building hours, unless otherwise noted (see Facilities). Rooms in Hughes are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Respect the practice rooms, as they are used by all students and guest artists.

Do not eat or drink in the practice rooms. WATER ONLY. For safety, do not leave your personal belongings in the rooms and take your trash with you when you leave. Thank you!
