                                    Building and Facility Use

Building Security. The Music Building is open 7 am to 10 pm Sunday through Saturday, including
breaks. On Holidays, the building is closed; any changes will be posted.

Use of Facility-Practice Rooms. Practice rooms are available anytime during building hours, except
when closed for piano maintenance or repairs. These rooms are available on a first-come first-served
basis. Access to locked practice rooms are assigned by percussion and piano instructors. Students are
expected to treat all music equipment with respect. Pianos are to remain where the piano technician has
placed them. Report any damaged equipment to the department secretary in Room 119.

Website: Visit www.ewu.edu/music for prospective and current student information (including this
handbook), course catalogues, concert/recital schedules, etc.

Recital Hall. Use of the Recital Hall is restricted to classes, rehearsals and events scheduled through
the Music Department secretary. Any additional use of the hall is scheduled through the Music
Department secretary, Room 119. Only the Music Secretary is authorized to schedule the Hall. Should
your rehearsal require the use of a piano, there are two Steinway concert grands available. One is a
performance piano, which is kept locked when not in use. Permission from Dr. Graves is required
before using this instrument. All faculty and students are expected to clear the Recital Hall stage
and return all equipment, protective covers, etc. after rehearsals and performances.

University-Owned Instruments, Uniforms, and Equipment. Students are responsible for loss or
damage to any of these items. Grades will be held until items are returned. University instruments may
only be used with the permission of the appropriate instructor. All instruments must be checked out
under the supervision of the Instrument Room attendant following the EWU Instrument Check-Out
Procedure (available outside the Music Office). Report loss or needed repairs immediately.

                                        Performance Policies

Recital/Convocation Performance Policies: Permission forms to perform on convocations or recitals
are available outside the Music Office. Rules and Guidelines for recitals are found on pages 25-28 of
this handbook.

Major Ensemble Requirements: All full and part-time music majors/minors (including post
baccalaureate students seeking certification) are required to participate in the major ensemble
appropriate to their principle area of performance each quarter of their university career (except for
Music Education majors during the quarter in which they are student teaching).

1.     Major ensembles, course numbers and credits are:
       A. MUSC 331 Band - For all woodwind, brass and percussion majors (Note: In the event that
       students are in danger of exceeding the 18 credit overload limit, large ensembles may be taken
       for 1 credit under a special 335 course number. See your ensemble director for details.)
       B. MUSC 332 Orchestra - For all string majors (including harp)
       C. MUSC 333 Symphonic Choir, and MUSC 336-06, Concert Choir - For all voice majors
       (Note: In the event that students are in danger of exceeding the 18 credit overload limit, large
       ensembles may be taken for 1 credit under a special 335 course number. See your ensemble
       director for details.)
2.     Majors in Piano Performance may substitute one year (3 quarters) of Piano Ensemble (MUSC
       335-04) in lieu of one year of a major ensemble.
3.     Music Education majors are required to participate for one quarter in a major ensemble outside
       their principle performance area.

Applied Music Instruction on Instruments and Voice: Every student who is accepted for private
applied music study is required to participate in a major ensemble. Students pursuing a major in music
are required to study their chosen instrument/voice with an EWU instructor each quarter they are in
residence (except for Music Education majors the quarter of their student teaching assignment).
Undergraduate students must acquire approval from a jury panel before enrolling for advanced levels of
instruction in applied music (MUSC 308, 340 or higher). Fees will be charged at the time of
registration.

Fees: All music classes have course fees. See page 7 for details.
 Registration Number System:
 MUSC 108: 1 credit. First year minors in Music, Music Education, Liberal Arts, or Composition majors
 and non-majors.
 MUSC 140: 2 credits. First year Music Performance majors
 MUSC 208: 1 credit. Second year minors in Music, Music Education, Liberal Arts, or Composition
 majors and non-majors.
 MUSC 240: 2 credits. Second year Music Performance majors.
 MUSC 308: 1 credit. Third year Music Education Liberal Arts, or Composition majors
 who have passed to junior level standing.
 MUSC 340: 2 credits. Third year Performance majors who have passed to junior level standing.
 MUSC 408: 1 credit. Fourth year Music Education, Liberal Arts, or Composition majors and non-majors
 who have completed 3 credits of MUSC 308.

                                                     4
Missed Lessons: Except in the case of student absences or official university functions, the department
will offer a minimum of 10 lessons to all applied students in any given quarter. Private lessons missed
because of holidays or other university functions will not be made up. Lessons canceled by the student
will not be made up. Lessons missed by the instructor will be made up within the quarter.

Probationary Status: Music majors and minors who receive grades lower than 2.8 in ANY required
music courses will be placed on probationary status. If they receive a grade lower than 2.8 in applied
lessons, they must then complete a minimum of one quarter of MUSC 108, 208, 140 or 240 to raise
their level of proficiency and must perform on a jury to request re-admittance to music major/minor
status. Students are denied the opportunity to pursue a music degree if they fail to complete the
probationary requirements. Failure to maintain a 2.8 grade in required music courses a second time may
result in the student being dropped from the music program. Non-majors enrolled in MUSC 108 who
receive a grade of 2.8 or lower in applied study will lose the privilege of taking applied lessons.

Changes of Studio: If students desire to change studio teachers, they are required to obtain the
approval of their current teacher, proposed teacher and the Music Department Chair before making any
changes.

Student Recitals and Convocation Performances: Student Recital Guidelines can be found on pages
25-28. Forms must be submitted to the Music Office and signed by your applied music teacher at least
one month before your recital (2 weeks for Convocation). All performances by applied music students
should be made only with written permission from the student’s instructor.

Jury Procedures: Performances for jury exams are viewed as an important part of each student’s
development. At the conclusion of each quarter of applied study, students are required to perform
before, and be evaluated by, a panel of music faculty. The environment of jury performance is similar
to that often encountered by musicians at professional auditions or music competitions. The jury panel
must approve advancement to MUSC 308, 340 and above for applied instruction at an advanced
level. Since jury preparation is an important long-range ―event‖ and is the responsibility of each
student, it is important to plan strategy, criteria and expectations each quarter of study with your applied
teacher. Consult the Jury Policies and Procedures Information pages 25-28 of this Handbook.

                                       Academic Information


The EWU Undergraduate Catalog is the primary source for academic programs and requirements. The
following information is supplemental. Many required music courses are offered sequentially, on
alternate years or as demand suffices. Consult the Course Announcement and your advisor about the
courses.

Entrance Requirements for All Incoming Students:
1.    Students must audition to be accepted into the music program. Audition Guidelines are available
      outside the music office.
2.    Students must pass a Music Theory proficiency exam as a prerequisite to MUSC 101 and 104.
3.    Students will take the Theory Proficiency exam on the first day of class and piano placement
      exam prior to the first day of classes.
4.    Students must pass MUSC 101-106 with a 2.8 in order to take Music History (MUSC 250-252)
      and Second year Music Theory and Sight-singing (MUSC 201-205)
5.    Students must pass a piano proficiency exam as a prerequisite to MUSC 201. Exams are usually
      taken at the conclusion of MUSC 121. Piano Proficiency Requirements are available outside
      Room 231.

Major Declarations: It is vital that you declare your major as soon as possible in order to receive
professional advising in music. You must audition and be accepted in order to declare your major in
music. Be sure to bring the signed acceptance form (from your applied teacher or ensemble director) to
the Music Department Office (Room 119), when you declare your major.

1.     First year students declaring a performance major will be accepted on provisional status for the
       first year of study. At the conclusion of the first year, students will perform before a jury panel
       of music faculty. The panel will decide whether or not students are allowed to continue as
       performance majors.
2.     Transfer students who declare a performance major will be accepted on provisional status for
       the first quarter of study. At the close of that quarter, students will perform before a jury panel of
       music faculty. The panel will decide whether or not students are allowed to continue as
       performance majors.

Advising: In order to be assigned a music advisor, students must pass their auditions to be accepted
into the Music Program and declare their majors in the Music Department Office (Room 119) (See
Major Declarations above paragraph). Students are responsible for contacting their advisors to set up
meetings.

Minimum Grade Standards: The minimum acceptable grade for any music course required for
graduation in all majors and minors offered by the Music Department is 2.8. This standard also applies
to courses transferred from other institutions.

Piano Proficiency and Placement: All music majors are required to complete a piano proficiency
exam. Students must pass a piano proficiency exam as a prerequisite to MUSC 201. Exams are usually
taken at the conclusion of the second quarter piano (MUSC 121). All incoming freshmen and transfer
students must take a Piano Placement exam prior to registration. Students who place out of MUSC 120
will be placed in Honors Keyboard (MUSC 126) in order to complete the Piano Proficiency
requirements. Piano Proficiency Requirements are available outside Room 231.
                                                     6
String Techniques: Students are required to take the fall and winter quarters of String Techniques
(MUSC 382) in succession unless given prior permission by the instructors.

Percussion Techniques: Students must take Percussion Techniques before the end of their third year in
order to avoid scheduling conflicts.

Transfer Students: Transfer students may transfer a maximum of 90 community college credits.

Senior Capstone: All students at EWU are required to take a senior capstone course. You may choose
to take a course in another department or the Senior Thesis course through music: MUSC 491.
Guidelines for MUSC 491 are available outside the music office.

                          Bachelor of Arts In Education Information

1. General University/Teacher Education Prerequisites: After you have been admitted to Eastern
Washington University, make an appointment with one of the following offices:
    A.       Direct Transfer Degree, contact the Education Department, Williamson Hall 312, (509)
             359-7033.
    B.       Bachelor’s degree, contact the Education Department, Williamson Hall 310, (509) 359-
             2237.
    C.       All other students contact the Undergraduate Advising Office, 3rd floor of Sutton Hall,
             359-2345. During the appointment you will receive advising for the General Education
             Core Requirements for certification and the prerequisites to EDUC 200, Admission To
             The Teacher Education Program.

2. Prerequisites to EDUC 200, Admission to the Teacher Education Program: Before you can take
 EDUC 200, you must complete the following prerequisites with at least a 2.0:
    1. Washington Educator Skills Test—Basic (WEST B)
         For information visit www.west.nesinc.com
    2. CPLA 100 AND CPLA 101 OR complete the computer literacy test clearance.
    3. English requirement: ENGL 101 AND 201 OR an APPROVED equivalent
    4. CMST 200 (intro to Speech) or approved equivalent
    5. A. Elementary Ed students: MATH 211 or equivalent
         B. Secondary Ed students: MATH 115 or equivalent
REMEMBER: You do not need EDUC 200 before you take EDUC 201, CEDP 302, CEDP 363 or many of the
cultural diversity courses needed for your degree.

3. EDUC 200, Admission to the Teacher Education Program (1 cr.): In this class students will
request a K-12 school placement and be assigned to a school where they will be expected to participate
in a minimum of three hours a week throughout the rest of the Education Program. The following will
be assessed in this class: certification eligibility, GPA requirement, and writing proficiency.

4. Professional Education Program: In your sophomore year, contact the Department of Education,
Williamson Hall 312, to obtain an education advisor to help you schedule your Professional Education
Program. There are different requirements for teaching at the secondary level than there are for teaching
at the elementary level. Make sure to obtain the correct list for your certification from your advisor.
      A.       The majority of students take more than 4 years to complete the B.A. in Music
               Education. Most students extend their schooling into a 5th year. This extension of time
               could ease the credit load and pressure on students and allow them flexibility in electing
               a minor music ensemble or an additional major music ensemble if they desire. It could
               also allow a student to pursue a second endorsement/minor in another subject area of
               interest, although this is not required for graduation or certification. An extension of time
               would allow one to do student teaching in either the fall or winter quarter, depending
               upon one’s preference.
      B.       Apply for Professional Admissions during the first week of school during your senior
               year to be admitted for the Winter quarter.

 Instrumental, Choral, General/Elementary or Secondary Major (101-105 credits)

Elementary music majors should enroll in Education 300, Introduction to Classroom Experience (1–4),
in the fall quarter prior to student teaching. See music education advisor for details. Music clearance
must be obtained by departmental interview prior to admission to Education 420, Admission to
Professional Candidacy (2). This major satisfies the endorsement for Preschool to grade 12. As with all
music degrees, students must complete the Convocation/Recital Attendance requirements.

                                 Recital Jury Policies

1. All recitals (including non-degree) given under the auspices of the Music Department are subject
    to these guidelines. The applied instructor is responsible to approve the repertoire.
2. A completed ―Recital Request Form‖ must be given to Colleen Hegney at least one (1) week
    prior to the jury date or five (5) weeks prior to the recital date, whichever is earlier. The form
    should also indicate who the committee is.
3. The recital jury must occur a minimum of 28 days prior to recital date. In the case of fall
    recitals, no recital may occur prior to the 29th day of the quarter.
4. The student is responsible for selecting a date and confirming a minimum of two (2) faculty
    members as a jury committee. One member of the committee must be the applied lesson
    teacher. Recital juries can be given in any room, though of course, the Recital Hall is preferable.
5. Each member of the Jury panel must receive an original or photocopy of the music to be
    performed as well as a printed program.
6. The program (including program notes, translations, texts as required by the applied instructor)
    must meet current department guidelines for format. Approved examples are available in the
    Music Office. The applied instructor is responsible to proofread the program prior to the recital
    jury. At its discretion, the committee may fail any student whose program does not meet these
    standards or is not provided at the recital jury.
7. All performing members of the intended recital must be present for the jury.
8. The length of the jury is dependent upon the type: 45 minutes for Senior Performance Majors
    and 30 minutes for all others.
9. If the applied teacher requires memorization, the student must perform from memory at the
    recital jury.
10. Juries are graded on a pass/fail basis determined by committee consensus. The committee shall
    make and announce its decision on the same calendar day as the jury.
11. The jury committee will provide written comments to the student. In the case of failed juries,
    the committee will specify what must be corrected before the next attempted jury. (If one
    particular piece fails the committee’s standards, the committee can recommend that the piece be
    eliminated from the program so long as the total number of minutes does not drop below the
    required minimum.)
12. Students who fail a pre-recital jury must apply for another pre-recital jury, which is subject to all
    the same rules and deadlines. (This also means that the recital date must be moved to
    accommodate the 28 day ruling)
13. At least two members of the committee (one must be the applied teacher) must be present at the
    recital.
14. No additions, subtractions or substitutions to the program may occur after the recital jury.

              Recital/Convocation Attendance Requirements

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

        By adding a recital/convocation attendance requirement to our music curriculum, we hope to
achieve two basic goals for our students. The first goal is to help students develop a deeper
understanding of performance. By attending recitals, concerts, and convocations regardless of the
performing medium in question, students will gain a greater knowledge of repertoire, improve critical
listening skills, learn to make independent musical judgments, and learn performance techniques and
stage etiquette through peer modeling. The second goal is to increase student attendance at our music
department activities and performances, thereby creating an atmosphere of mutual support and
encouragement between all EWU music students.

RECITAL/CONVOCATION ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT

        All music majors enrolled at EWU are required to attend 50 recitals/convocations each year they
are in attendance. Students will be given credit for participating in performances, provided that
they follow the documentation process (see MONITERING SYSTEM). Performances that fulfill
this requirement include EWU music department convocations, student recitals, and ensemble
performances, EWU sponsored performances, and off-campus performances approved by a faculty
committee prior to the beginning of each quarter. A list of acceptable off-campus performances will be
posted at the beginning of each new quarter.
        If students fail to attend the required 50 recitals/convocations, they will be placed on
departmental probation and required to make up the deficiency in addition to the 50
recitals/convocations required for the next year. For example, if students attend 42
recitals/convocations in one year, they are required to attend 58 recitals/convocations the following year
(50 recitals + 8 deficiency recitals from the previous year).
        Students who fail the recital/convocation requirement two years in a row will lose their music
major status. Students who fail the recital/convocation attendance requirement in their final year
(immediately prior to graduation) will not be allowed to graduate until they make up their deficiency
performances.

EXCEPTIONS

        Students who are not in attendance during all three quarters of the school year (student teachers,
early graduates, etc.) are only required to complete the recital attendance requirement during the
quarters they are in attendance. The number of recitals per quarter will be divided as follows:

               Fall:   15 recitals
               Winter: 15 recitals
               Spring: 20 recitals


MUSIC EDUCATION MINORS

         In order to complete music education minors—choral or instrumental--students must attend a
total of 50 recitals/convocations prior to graduation.
                                                    30
MONITERING SYSTEM

        Attendance will be monitored through students’ Eagle cards. At the beginning and end of each
performance, students will swipe their Eagle cards through a card reader that records their student
number and the time the card was swiped.
        To receive credit for off-campus performances, students must turn in programs from
performances as soon after the performance as possible. They will then be allowed to swipe their Eagle
card through the card reader to record their attendance.

RECITAL COMMITTEE

        To facilitate the fair application of this requirement, a faculty committee will meet prior to each
quarter to determine which off-campus performances in the Spokane area will be accepted for credit.
This committee will also accept petitions from students and faculty members to add performances to the
off-campus performance list, and will be the governing board in considering students with issues that
must be reviewed on an individual basis. The chair of the recital committee is a yearly office, and will
be appointed by the department chair.

STUDENT PETITIONS

        If students wish to contest a failure or has a specific reason that they feel they should be partially
or fully excused from the recital attendance requirement, they may petition the Recital Committee for
individual consideration. To do this, students must submit a written explanation to the members of the
board. Students may meet with the committee chair personally if they choose. The committee will then
meet to discuss each individual case. All decisions of the Recital Committee are final.

        Home email: ahm@webband.com
        EWU Schedule: Monday & Tuesday all day; Wednesday half-day

 Only the EWU piano technician or technicians authorized by the piano technician may perform any work on
  any piano that is under the jurisdiction of the EWU Music Department. This includes, but is not limited to
  tuning, repair, regulation, voicing, & cleaning.
 Remember that the piano technician is available only Monday through Wednesday, and therefore needs to
  be given ample notice for any event requiring piano service that is scheduled at a time when the technician is
  not normally on campus.
 Please report any piano-related problems to the technician as soon as possible. Small problems generally
  become big problems if they are ignored for too long. Remember, too, that the piano technician can only fix
  problems he knows about. There is a sheet on the wall by the office for students to report piano problems.

PIANO USE
(Our instruments are for Department use only. If you are not sure that your proposed use is appropriate, please
check with the Department Chair and/or the piano technician.)

Damage Control
     All classrooms, nearly every studio, and most practice rooms have a piano available for use.
     Most of these are on our inventory, i.e. WA state property. However, some are presently
     supplied by Yamaha as part of a loan agreement (see below). In either case, we are responsible
     for any damage that may occur. Your cooperation is needed to minimize this.
      Please do not use the tops of pianos for bookcases, storage or sorting tables. In addition
         to the potential for damage, misusing the piano in this way makes the instruments more
         difficult and time-consuming to service.
      Food and Drink: Pianos and all keyboard instruments are very vulnerable to damage from
         liquids. One spill can easily cause thousands of dollars of damage! Greasy and sticky
         food makes for a lousy feeling instrument and creates additional work for the technician.
         Please wash your hands before playing (germs are easily spread to other pianists on keytops).
         In case of a spill, contact the piano technician immediately. The quicker the piano is
         dried out, the less long-term damage will be done.
      Covers: Some of our pianos have covers. Please use them. When you remove the cover to
         use the piano, put the cover in a clean location. The floor, while convenient, is not a good
         storage place for the cover. The front part of the cover can often just be flipped back out of
         the way while the piano is used and then it is easy to flip it back in place after you are
         finished.
      Protocol for the “prepared” piano:
         PREPARED PIANO PIECES may only be performed on a designated piano after
         consultation with the piano technician (including watching a short video) and must follow
         these guidelines:
          All structural changes to any piano must be approved by and in most cases performed
             by the piano technician. This includes removing the lid or other case parts and attaching
                                                       32
anything to strings or soundboard to modify the sound.




                                   33
            Marking strings
             Sticky note paper is the preferred material to use for marking dampers, agraffes or
             strings. To mark a string node a thin (1/8‖) strip of the adhesive part of a stickie note
             should be worked around the string and stuck to itself. Never use masking tape or any
             other adhesive that may leave a residue. The performer is responsible for removing any
             stickers immediately after any performance. Care must always be used when touching
             dampers as they are easily bent. Other than small stickies, there should be nothing
             applied directly to the strings. This includes white-out, tape, crayon, stickers, nail polish,
             etc.
            Striking and plucking strings
             Strings may be struck or plucked with fingers or guitar pick. Other devices must always
             be a material that will not mar or scratch strings. On steel strings only materials that are
             softer than the steel string may be used, such as brass or aluminum. Copper wound bass
             strings (copper is much softer than steel) must also be struck or plucked with a material
             softer than the copper. Acceptable material include wood, plastic, rubber, etc. Never use
             a steel chisel or screwdriver on piano strings. As the piano technician, I will be happy to
             help any performer select materials that will not damage the piano. In some cases,
             literature calls for the insertion of screws or mutes between piano strings. Again, a
             material softer than the string must be used, such as brass or aluminum.
            Extreme volume
             There is a fine line to be drawn between passionate musical expression and outright
             banging on a piano. Please use good judgment when playing above a forte. Harsh playing
             is damaging and will not be tolerated.
            Common sense
             Most damage to our pianos can easily be avoided by using good judgment. Please
             consult with the piano technician before using unconventional techniques. Usually an
             alternative can be found to satisfy both the performer and this policy.

Concert instruments
      Our Recital Hall has two 9' Steinway grands:
       One is reserved for concert and recital use (―1‖ is written on the dolly near treble leg). This
          #1 Steinway grand is stored off downstage right. It should be covered and put in its storage
          place at all times when not in use. It is stored with the keyboard facing out. Faculty is
          responsible for making sure that the piano properly stored immediately after use.
       The second (actually newer) has a cover is designated for every other use - i.e. class,
          ensemble, etc (―2‖ is written on the dolly near treble leg). This #2 Steinway grand is kept
          either upstage or off stage right. It should be covered when not in use.
       Either of these pianos can be chosen for use in a recital, although for more critical
          performances, most should choose the #1 piano. Both pianos are regularly serviced but the
          piano technician should be notified in advance when a recital or special event is scheduled so
          that the piano can be serviced for that event.
       It is general Department policy that the Recital Hall not be used for routine practice.
          Correspondingly, the Recital Hall pianos are not to be used for routine practice. A concert
          piano used as a practice piano soon begins to sound and feel like a practice piano!
          However, the pianos can (and should) be used for rehearsals. Recitalists are allowed two 1.5
          hour dress rehearsals before their recital.



                                                   34
       If you are scheduling a recital, rehearsal or class that uses both pianos in the traditional two-
       piano configuration, please make arrangements with the piano technician for the lid of one piano
       to be removed (takes about 2 minutes), and then replaced afterward. Because this is a three
       person job and the Department does not have regular staff available to meet this requirement,
       please help recruit two healthy volunteers to assist.

       On the Showalter Auditorium stage we have another 9' Steinway grand that is regularly
       maintained for concert use. The same rules and suggestions for use and event preparation apply
       here.

       For Departmental events using pianos in other venues, such as the PUB, Pavilion or Met
       Theater, please consult with the piano technician well ahead of time for special arrangements as
       these pianos are not under the jurisdiction of the Department technician (and are not well-
       maintained).

Harpsichords
      The Burton spinet (built from a kit) is in locked practice room 139C.
      The second harpsichord is a full-size Hubbard French double (two manual). This
      instrument, also built from a kit, was rebuilt in 1992 with a new soundboard, bridges, wrest
      plank, jacks and jack rails. It is adequate for full orchestra and solo use. It has a transposing
      keyboard, so it may be used at either modem or Baroque pitch. Please do not try to transpose the
      keyboard yourself, you may damage the jacks. The Hubbard is stored beside and to the right of
      the #1 Steinway grand off downstage right . It may be used in other rooms of the Music Building
      or Showalter Auditorium, however sufficient advanced notice to allow for moving and tuning
      arrangements is required - usually two weeks. Please note that, though the Hubbard harpsichord
      is on a wheeled dolly, it is too wide to fit through the most common 36" doors in the Music
      Building. Moving through doors while on its dolly requires a door width of at least 48". The
      only doors of this width are on the Recital Hall, band rehearsal room (123), instrument storage
      room, and piano shop (142). When the harpsichord is moved through the smaller doors, it must
      be removed from its dolly and tipped on its side. This is a three (healthy) person job. For this
      reason, when you make your request to the piano technician for moving, please make
      arrangements for the additional two people required for moving.

Organ, Electronic Piano, Celesta
    The Department has three electronic organs. The primary one is located in Showalter Hall
      Auditorium. The other two are kept in storage outside the back of the Recital Hall. Service for
      these instruments is contracted out to an electronic organ technician.
    Our Fender Rhodes electric piano is located in the instrument storage room (across from the
      band room). It was reconditioned in October 2004. For effective use it needs a powered
      amplifier.
    Our Mustel Celesta is kept in the percussion studio (Rm 143). It was reconditioned in November
      2002.

Piano moving
      Piano moving is done primarily by EWU Transportation Services after an initial consultation
      with the piano technician. If you need to have a piano moved, please contact the piano
      technician first before contacting Transportation Services (not all piano moves need to be done
      by them and our department is charged by Transportation Services for piano moving). Whoever
      initiates the move is also responsible for arranging for the piano to be moved back.
      Remember that the piano will need to be tuned at least twice: after the initial move, before the
      event; and again after the return of the piano. The piano technician needs to know at least 2
      weeks ahead in order to schedule the tuning.

Standard pitch and historical temperaments
      Departmental pianos are tuned using equal temperament and at standard A-440 pitch. Other
      temperaments may be requested. For concerts however, extra time needs to be allowed for
      tuning (4 tunings: 2 up, 2 back). The two harpsichords are tuned using a Vallotti-Young (1799)
      well-temperament system.

Practice Rooms
        The Department has pianos in 15 of 30 practice rooms.
        Six practice rooms are locked and are for piano majors – 139A (1 studio piano), 139B
          (Kawai grand), 139C (Burton spinet harpsichord), 139D (Steinway grand), 139E (Baldwin
          grand), and 137B (2 Kawai studio pianos back-to-back).
        No food or drink is allowed in practice rooms.
        Practice rooms may NOT be used for private instruction.
        Any vacant classroom may be used for practice provided that the practice does not cause
          disturbance.
        Hallways, galleries, storage areas, etc. may NOT be used for practice.
        Piano benches must not be removed practice rooms. If an extra bench is needed, please
          contact the piano technician.
