Access for All WWU Students

General Practice Rooms

General Practice Rooms are open to all WWU students and the community during open building hours.

General practice rooms are located on Lower Level 1 (LL1) and Lower Level 2 (LL2). See the PAC Floor Map for more details. Each room has an upright piano, music stand, piano bench, and often a mirror. 

Digital Drumset Lab

The Digital Drumset Lab is open to all WWU students during open building hours! Send an email to requesting access. You will then receive an email response letting you know you have been given access to the Digital Drumset Lab Canvas course.

Once you have access to the Canvas page, read the guidelines for the use of the Digital Drumset Lab, and take the short quiz.  After you have taken the quiz, print and sign the drum lab agreement and email to schedule a meeting with the Percussion Area Manager for a signature.  The Percussion Area Manager must sign the agreement for it to be valid.

Take the signed agreement to the Music Office, PA-273.  You will now be able to check out a key to the lab from the office during their business hours 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.


You only need to complete these steps ONCE during your attendance at WWU. The Music Office will keep your completed agreement form on file for reference.

Reserved Practice Rooms

Piano Practice Rooms

Our piano practice rooms (PA/PAC 169-175) on LL1 are reserved for students enrolled in piano lessons at WWU. Practice rooms are open during building hours.

These rooms require a reservation and scheduled practice time. Piano practice times are scheduled based on seniority/degree program; more details will be sent to students enrolled in piano lessons from the piano area.

Pay the piano practice room fee after receiving instructions from the Piano Area and before checking out a key. 

Percussion Practice Rooms

Percussion practice rooms (PA 009, 011, 012) are available to percussion students on a first come first served basis until practice room sign-up occurs at the first masterclass of each quarter.

Current percussion students will check out a key from the Music Office. Once the first masterclass has occurred, keys will be checked out to eligible students for the quarter. Practice rooms are available for use when the building is open.
