As the main facility for both music instruction and practice, Estabrook Hall fills the air of the east side of campus with the sound of students honing their craft on a variety of instruments and voices. The second oldest building on campus, Estabrook Hall houses the music program on its first two floors and the Literature, Language, and Culture Department on the floors above.
The music facilities in Estabrook Hall consist of:
- Fuller Music Center is a sizeable classroom for many of the music classes. Surrounded by several storage spaces for instruments and equipment, it also serves as a rehearsal space for our music ensembles, including the Clark University Choirs, Concert Band, Jazz Workshop, and Sinfonia.
- A dozen soundproof practice rooms furnished with upright pianos are available for all Clark students with valid IDs.
- Stop by Estabrook 220 M-F 9-5 or see our front desk proctor during weekend or after hours to sign out a key!
- (Fun fact: there are 5 grand pianos hiding within Estabrook Hall. Can you locate them all?)
- The Music/Events Office is located on the second floor of Estabrook Hall and is staffed by students Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. These office assistants help with day-to-day administrative duties and the promotion/staffing of all Visual & Performing Arts events. Stop by with a question or to say hello! Contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-508-793-7356.
- On the second floor of Estabrook Hall, you’ll find Clark’s recording studio. A popular workspace for our Music Technology students, the room is equipped with the latest audio recording software to suit your creative needs. Students can use the provided piano, drum set, microphones, turntable, and more to create their own masterpieces. No experience? No problem! We offer classes that teach you everything you need to know about recording, from Computers & Music (MUSC 141) to Soundtracks (MUSC 242). You’ll be ready to make your own music in no time! For more information about Clark’s recording studio, please contact Professors John Freyermuth or Matt Malsky.
