Any non-performance ensemble class at the level of MUS 104  or higher. Possible classes include, but are not limited to:

Music Practice Rooms

A limited number of music practice rooms are available in Darte Hall. These rooms are generally reserved for those students majoring in Theatre Arts or Musical Theatre and those participating in ensembles or taking private music instruction within the Performing Arts Division or the Wilkes Community Conservatory. Because of the heavy enrollment in these courses, the University is unable to make these rooms available to students who are not enrolled in these curricular offerings.

Students who are eligible to use these rooms are assigned a key for the practice room through the Division of Performing Arts Office. Since more than one student is assigned to a practice room, it is expected that students will cooperate and work out compatible practice times. Failure to return the key to the practice room at the conclusion of the semester will result in a block being placed on the student’s record that precludes the release of the official transcript of work undertaken at the University.
