The Department of Music occupies three buildings on the Danforth campus and one building slightly north of campus. In the Danforth campus buildings, which include Blewett Hall, MCB/Tietjens Hall, and Gaylord Music Library, students will find our classrooms, offices for musicology and theory faculty, a piano lab, practice modules, administrative offices, and library materials. The 560 Music Center is a 10-minute shuttle ride from the Danforth campus and houses our ensemble rehearsal rooms, three performance venues, offices for applied music faculty, practice modules, instrument storage, and administrative offices. Academic classes, such as theory and history, take place in MCB/Tietjens while applied music lessons and ensemble rehearsals occur at the 560 Music Center.
