Music practice rooms

Rehearsal rooms for musicians to work on their material for gigs and assessments.

About the music practice rooms

The four large rooms are all equipped with everything a band will need for a two-hour (or more) rehearsal. They are kitted out with a drum kit (breakables such as cymbals, felts and bass drum pedals are booked out from our store system) a bass amp, a variety of guitar amps, two keyboards and congas.

The four smaller rooms are equipped with upright pianos and small speaker systems for playback. 

The store has everything else students might need for rehearsals, from mics and stands, to guitars and basses, and straps and percussion.
