The Music Office is where you access many of the services listed below, and is always a good place to ask questions when you don't know the answer.
E-mail is the most frequently used mode of communication and you will miss critical academic information if you do not check your e-mail. Please ensure that your personal information is always updated on Peoplesoft.
If you do not have an e-mail address or if you would like to get a University account, the University will provide you with a free account. You can register online through Information Technologies.
The bulletin boards on the outside wall of CHD 100 are an important source of information about the Department: lesson times, class cancellations, rehearsal schedules and times, concert information, recital hour information & sign-up sheets, course information, upcoming events, junior and senior recital forms & info, student ticket deals, and student messages. Try to check the bulletin boards at least once a day.
The Student Success Centre is available for advising students in the Department on their academic programmes. See their web site for more information (including directions to the office).
Any questions regarding Music lockers please contact Lindsay Usher, Students Union, at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 220-2901/220-4941. Additional information regarding lockers is available at the Students Union website.
All music majors are entitled to access the practice rooms on the main floor of F-Block. If you are registered for Music Listening, your campus card should access the suite of rooms. Please see Sheila Harland or Susan Wong if you have trouble with access. Piano majors will have access to keyed rooms, and Susan Wong will issue the keys (the charge for misplacing your practice room key is $50). Practice rooms are not to be used as lockers (you risk having your belongings removed and put in the Lost and Found bin in Mac Hall), or for eating, studying, drawing murals, etc.. A full list of rules is posted in each room.
Speak to the Office staff directly if you need to book a room for a rehearsal.
Every University student is entitled to receive one free entry into any event (if tickets are still available) that is sponsored by the Faculty of Arts (e.g., concerts by University ensembles, Celebrity Series concerts, all dance and drama productions, etc.). One of the greatest things you can do is attend concerts and other events to support your colleagues and professors and it's free!
Your student card entitles all University of Calgary students to one complimentary ticket to all Fine Arts events.
