Coronavirus: latest information

Individual Practice Rooms

Individual practice rooms are available on both campuses. Each room contains an upright piano, and they are available to all students 8am - 10pm daily. There is no charge for use, and they can be booked in advance if desired.

Performance Spaces

The University's flagship performance venue is the Great Hall, a 500-seater auditorium with fine acoustics located on the Bay Campus. The Great Hall hosts several student performances every year, along with a programme of professional concerts. In addition to the Great Hall, our ensembles and choirs perform regularly on Singleton Campus and elsewhere in Swansea.

Group Rehearsal Spaces

Our ensembles and choirs rehearse on Singleton Campus, in Fulton House. 

Instruments

As well as practice room pianos, we have a Kawai grand piano for use by our ensembles and choirs and by a small number of students who play piano at an advanced level. The Great Hall houses two grand pianos which are available for concerts (a Steinway Model D and a smaller Yamaha grand), and a three-manual Regent Classic digital organ.

The Music Service and Musicians' Society have a full range of orchestral percussion for use by our ensembles.

The University Music Service works with the local authority music services to provide loans of less common instruments (e.g. bass clarinet, baritone saxophone, etc.) to students who are members of our ensembles.

Sheet Music

The Music Service and student societies maintain an extensive library of orchestral sets, choral music, big band, wind orchestra and other ensemble music. New music is added to this library every year, giving our ensembles and choirs considerable freedom in their choice of repertoire. 

A modest selection of sheet music and books about music is held in the University library.
