Because Practice Makes Perfect
If you are a Georgia Tech student or faculty/staff member looking for a private room to practice your musical skills, then look no further! Practice space access lasts all semester, from the first day of class until the last day of finals, 24/7. Our space is available for you literally any time you feel the inspiration to come play or sing.
Where are the practice rooms?
In the Couch building, we have three rooms available for practice space. They are rooms 104, 204, and 211.
How much does it cost?
We charge a flat fee of $30 per semester for practice room access. However, if you’re enrolled in a music class of any type, you’ll get a discounted rate of $15. As mentioned above, access lasts from the first day of class until the last day of finals.
Are there pianos that I can play?
Yes! There are electric Kawaii pianos available to play in all three practice rooms. Additionally, there is an upright piano located in room 204 if you prefer a more acoustic sound. We do not have any grand pianos available for practice.
If you wish to play an instrument other than a piano, you must bring your own instrument.
Will I get a notification of when I have access after I pay for it?
Due to the high volume of customers who purchase access, you will not receive a personal message informing you of when you receive access.
Generally, if you’ve paid for access, expect your buzzcard to have access by the end of the next business day (EG, if you buy access on Monday afternoon, it will be ready by Tuesday afternoon or sooner. If you purchase on a weekend, you must wait until Monday). If you encounter any issues accessing the room at that point, please contact Joshua Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are the other rules for practice room usage?
So glad you asked! Our rules are simple, but strictly enforced:
- When you are finished using a practice room, make sure the door is fully closed behind you. Please help us keep our building secure.
- Music students and faculty are given priority above all other activities in the building at any time. If you are practicing in a room that is needed for a School of Music function, you will be required to vacate it and move to the next available room.
- Outside group rehearsals are not allowed. Only students in School of Music ensembles are allowed to practice together in our practice rooms, and that is only if each student has paid the fee. Approved ensembles for this are: Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Combo, Men’s Glee Club, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Chorale, Marching Band, Pep Band, and Chamber Choir.
- Sharing practice access with others who have not paid the fee is strictly prohibited.
Failure to comply with any of these rules can result in an immediate revocation of practice room access without refund.
