The Faculty Studio Building

The 85,000-square-foot Indiana University Jacobs School of Music Studio Building will provide technologically and acoustically superior teaching and practice spaces to rival the facilities of any music school or conservatory in the world. Located at the northeast corner of Third Street and Jordan Avenue on the IU Bloomington campus, the Studio Building will mark the entrance to the university’s music and performing arts district.

This new structure will provide studio space with excellent acoustics and state-of-the-art wiring and technology, as well as more and larger practice and rehearsal rooms. The building will contain 84 studios for faculty and associate instructors as well as classrooms, administrative offices, graduate student spaces, mechanical support space, and a faculty lounge.

Also included in this construction project is an addition to the west side of the Musical Arts Center of approximately 20,000 square feet. It will consist of three large rehearsal rooms, a storage area, an audio control room, music technical shops, and common spaces.

The entire project is funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc.

  1. What a marvelous path this school has taken. I remember when we used to practice in those buildings we called “the barracks”. A recent trip back after decades made me smile the entire time I walked through the old and the new facilities. I can only hope the current and future students appreciate how superior this school really is. Some of the best times of my life were spent in Bloomington and the roots of that experience started in the school of music.
