Practice Rooms

Updated April 5th, 2021

 

For Spring Quarter 2021, as in previous quarters this academic year, Santa Clara County's COVID-19 Tier color will determine practice room availability.

 

On campus requirement for undergraduate students:

Undergraduate students looking to practice in Braun and Dinkelspiel this quarter must live on campus.  Those who live off campus are not yet eligible to reserve practice times. 

 

Enrollment requirement:

To practice in Braun and Dinkelspiel this quarter, you must be actively enrolled in a Music Department course in Spring Quarter. This includes private lessons, group lessons, academic courses, and performance ensembles. 

 

Staff Members:

Due to a reduction in the number of available practice rooms, we are not yet able to offer practice spaces to Stanford faculty and staff members.  

 

Purple Tier:

Practicing is limited to graduate students who play either keyboards or percussion instruments and who meet the above requirements.

 

All other Tiers:

Practicing is open to all instrumentalists and vocalists*, both graduate and undergraduate, who meet the above requirements. 

 

* Vocalists, Winds, and Brasses: 

Both indoor and outdoor locations are available for these instruments. Outdoor locations are limited to 1-hour practice sessions, and indoor locations are limited to 30-minute practice sessions. 


Availability / Timeline:

Practicing times will begin Monday, April 12th, at the beginning of week three of the quarter.  Rooms will be available from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

 

Fees*:

The practice room fee will be prorated for Spring Quarter.  The fee structure is based on when you begin practicing, as follows:

Week 3 = $40 for the quarter

Week 4 = $35 for the quarter

Week 5 and after = $30 for the quarter

*If you are enrolled in an individual or group lesson course, the fee for the practice rooms is incorporated into the private instruction fee.

 

Scheduling:

All scheduling requests must be done via email.  Currently, each student is limited to a maximum of three one-hour sessions per week. To submit your request, please email Alma Pasic-Tran.  Requests have to be made more than 24 hours in advance; requests for Monday must be made by noon on Friday.

If you need an ADA-compliant practice room, please include that information in your scheduling request.
