The IU JSoM Percussion Department looks forward to moving into the new, 85,000 square-foot East Studio Building - located on the northeast corner of Third Street and Jordan Avenue. The facility will provide technologically and acoustically superior teaching and practice facilities to rival any music school or conservatory in the world.
The Percussion Department will occupy this new building with an anticipated move during the summer of 2013. In addition to 4 large faculty percussion studios, the percussion area will also include 4 dedicated teaching assistant offices/studios, 15 percussion practice rooms, and dedicated equipment storage. Please see the below photos of our recent "tour" of this building.
The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music includes five buildings located in the heart of the IU Bloomington campus. Music students have access to outstanding recital halls, more than 170 practice rooms, choral and instrumental rehearsal rooms, and more than 100 offices and studios. The grandest facility is the Musical Arts Center, which features technical capabilities that are among the best in the nation.
