Spring 2021 Practice Rooms

Practice rooms in Price Music Center are available by reservation only to NC State students from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Reservation blocks will be for one hour. Each reservation will be followed by an hour of downtime before the next reservation as a safety protocol to allow for proper air exchange in the room. 

Reservations are essential because rooms must be left vacant for an hour between occupants as a safety measure to ensure that, each time someone enters a practice room, any potentially contaminated air has been replaced with clean air.

NC State students may reserve standard practice rooms at ncstatemusic.skedda.com. To reserve, click on an available practice room time in either the “Map” or “Day” view and follow the onscreen instructions. You will receive a confirmation email with the date, time and location of your booking.

Rules for Practice Room Use

  1. You must reserve your practice room time at least 24 hours in advance.
  2. Only enter your reserved room at the exact time you have reserved.
  3. Exit the room promptly after an hour.
  4. Only one occupant is allowed in a room at a time and you may not let others into your reserved room.
  5. Thoroughly wash your hands before entering and after exiting a practice room.
  6. Wipe down the piano keys in your practice room before using the piano. The Department will provide wipe dispensers in each practice room hallway. Use only one wipe to conserve the Department’s supply. Please do not wipe the wood on pianos as this may damage the instrument.
  7. Wear a face covering and use proper mitigating equipment when inside the practice room. The Department of Music will provide specialty masks and bell covers to wind/brass players.
  8. Ensure that the door to your practice room is securely shut when you exit, otherwise the air cannot be properly exchanged before the next reservation.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in the loss of practice room privileges. If you have questions or concerns, please email music-reserve@ncsu.edu.

Rooms with additional instruments and/or equipment are available to select students in the Department of Music’s ensembles and Music Minor program. Students who are eligible for additional room booking privileges will be granted access by request at music-reserve@ncsu.edu.
