Fall 2022 Info

Keys and lockers

Locker Checkout and/or Practice Room Keys will be handled STARTING AUGUST 16 in Room 121 or via email. Larger lockers will be reserved for larger instruments only. You must be an enrolled music student and have your University fees paid to check out a locker or a practice room key (Lockers may also be checked out by registered volunteers)

Music Service Fee

Note that most music courses require a Music Service Fee ($40 per semester), which helps support the tech areas of the department (purchase and maintenance of instruments including pianos, AV equipment used in classroom spaces and in concert halls, music stand purchases, etc.). These fees are automatically applied to your University account at the start of each semester.

Student Lounge

The Student Lounge (Room 135) is now open, M-F 8am-7pm, providing a place to hang out, work on assignments, enjoy lunch (refrigerator and microwaves available). Please note the rules posted at the door, and be sure not to leave a mess in there!

Above all, we want to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, community members, faculty, and staff. We recognize that we are in a unique moment in history that can lead to meaningful and lasting reformative change, and seek to align the School of Music with Sacramento State’s commitment to being an anti-racist multicultural institution.
