Practice Rooms in the Jean Macey Music Annex

There are two practice rooms in the Jean Macey Music Annex available for use by members of the NMT community. A keycard is required for entry; a form to have a keycard or ID coded for entry may be obtained from the C.L.A.S.S. Department Secretary, Liza Apache, in Fitch 103.

Please note that keycards are generally issued for the duration of the fall, spring, or summer semester, and practice rooms may be unavailable from time to time, including during school holidays.

Music Scholarships

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Elise Brower Scholarship Fund. This endowed fund provides scholarship aid to one or more undergraduate students each year who participate in the NMT Music Program.
