Schoenberg Music Building
Schoenberg Music Building was named after the 20th-century composer Arnold Schoenberg, who was a member of the Department of Music faculty in the 1940s. Housed in Schoenberg are the departments of Ethnomusicology, Music, and Musicology. The building includes a recital hall, Jan Popper Theater (seating 144 persons--click to see photo) and main concert hall, Schoenberg Hall (seating 500 persons--click to see photos), both of which are fully equipped for audio recording. The building also houses the Music Library and Ethnomusicology Archive as well as numerous classrooms, practice rooms, an orchestra room, band room, and a choral room. The Henry Mancini Media Lab can be found on the 2nd floor.
Please report problems with heating/air conditioning, lighting, custodial services, etc. to Carol Pratt, 2539 SMB or phone (310) 825-4761.

ROOM USE DURING EVENINGS AND ON WEEKENDS
Most general use rooms are kept unlocked during building hours. Access to special laboratories, practice rooms, and other locked areas of the building must be requested and approved in advance. NO FOOD OR DRINK OF ANY TYPE IS PERMITTED IN LABORATORIES, REHEARSAL ROOMS OR PRACTICE ROOMS.
Labs, computer rooms, electronic music rooms, and performance rooms with rare instruments are secured by Omnilocks. In order to get an Omnilock code, or to activate your Bruin ID card, students must complete an Omnilock Agreement form in Student Services room 1642.These forms must also be signed by the appropriate faculty.
Access to rooms with Omnilocks is only granted during the quarter the student is officially enrolled in the appropriate course.
Faculty and students are not to share their code with anyone. If a person is found with a code that was not issued to them, that code will be deleted from the system and will not be re-issued to the student for the remainder of the year.
PERFORMANCE ROOM POLICIES
Food and Drink Food and drink are not allowed in any of the performance rooms.
Instruments Students with omnilock codes may use the instruments in the room for which they were given the code, but may not take any instrument away from that room. The instructor of an ensemble controls the use of the instruments used by that ensemble.
Chairs Chairs and rugs must be stacked and returned to their original location after use.
Propping Door open Do not prop the door open and leave the room empty. If the door is propped open a responsible person must be in the room.
Clean-up The room must be cleaned up after use and all instruments and equipment returned to their original locations.
Respect and Care Please respect the instruments and treat them with care. Do not put clothing and other personal belongings on the instruments.
MUSIC DEPARTMENT PRACTICE ROOMS
As of fall quarter 2005, a new policy will be enforced for the use of all Music Department practice rooms. A fee for the use of practice rooms will be required to obtain a practice room card and access. For additional information, please CLICK HERE.
Lost Practice Room Cards cost $20 to replace. Don’t lose your card or let it get damaged!
Practice Room Keys Students with yellow or pink cards will also be given a B608 key to unlock those rooms. A student may keep the key until he or she graduates. At that time keys must be returned or otherwise they will be considered lost.
All rooms are routinely checked by Community Service Officers (CSOs) to make sure that they are being used properly. Repeated misuse of the performance and practice rooms can result in a suspension of practice room privileges. CSOs are there for the safety and security for the students. Please cooperate with their requests.
Music Department Instrument Lockers
Lockers are used at students’ own risk and neither UCLA nor the Departments of Music or Ethnomusicology is liable for any loss, damage or theft to any personal property left in lockers. You are strongly urged to obtain personal property insurance.
Sometimes during the year, department notices will be posted asking that students empty or clean out their lockers. Lockers that are not cleaned out as instructed will have their contents removed and will receive a $75 fine.
There are book sized lockers with yellow instruction labels in the Schoenberg Music Building under the jurisdiction of the University Department of Recreation that are not maintained by the Music or Ethnomusicology Departments.
REHEARSALS AND CLASSROOMS
Rooms for rehearsal should be scheduled as far in advance as possible. Contact the Technical Services Office Manager in Room 1309 who maintains the room use schedule for Schoenberg Music Building. Persons or organizations who have officially reserved a room have preference for room use. Please return a classroom or rehearsal room to its original configuration after using it.
SCHEDULING SPECIAL EVENTS
Requests from individuals or organizations to use the ethnomusicology performance rooms fall into several categories:
a). Department individuals or organizations requesting a departmental event.
Requests under “a” above must be routed through Donna Armstrong and are normally granted without additional formalities. Requests “b,” “c,” and “d” must also be routed through Donna Armstrong, and all require in addition that the Performance Room Use Agreement Form and possibly the Instrument Loan Request Form be completed and submitted to the department chair for approval.OFFICIAL NOTICES
Student Services uses email as a primary means of communicating with students. In addition, official notices are posted on bulletin boards throughout the building.
Space is provided on some boards for students to post their own notices (i.e. recital announcements). Please post your notices in only those areas.
INSTRUMENT / EQUIPMENT
Liability The University of California assumes no liability for the loss of or damage to student or faculty instruments or equipment, either on or off the campus. It is the responsibility of the student or faculty member to make sure his/her instruments are insured. This could be through a homeowner’s policy or a specific policy for the instrument.
Use of Instruments Ethnomusicology Department instruments are part of a special collection and are extremely difficult or impossible to replace. Therefore they are not routinely checked out for practice purposes.
Use of Equipment Audio and visual recording equipment is available for graduate student use. Please see David Martinelli, B544 (Ethno Lab), 206-3943.
Music Stands Music stands are not to be removed from Schoenberg Music Building without the permission of someone in the Technical ServicesOffice, 1309 SH.
Keys are not issued to Schoenberg Music Building rooms or entrances. With appropriate permission, access to locked areas may be obtained by seeing the Campus Security Officer at the Circle Drive entrance.
TAs may check out keys to their offices and classroom sound equipment through the main office. Failure of TAs to return keys will result in a hold placed on the student’s record.
LOST AND FOUND
For lost items, inquire at the reception desk in the main office, 2539 SMB.
Undergraduate mailboxes Each ethnomusicology major is assigned a mailbox in the second-floor corridor. Students should check their boxes on a regular basis. DO NOT leave cassette tapes, copies of music or other valuables in these boxes as such items have been known to disappear.
Graduate mailboxes Boxes for non-TAs are located beside the undergraduate boxes in the second-floor corridor. Some faculty will return papers there. DO NOT give the department as your mailing address as the department will not deliver mail or take telephone messages.
TA boxes TA mailboxes are located in the Student Services Office, 1642 SMB. These are used by students to get in touch with their TAs. There is no secretary/receptionist in that office, so messages are taken upstairs in the main office and may take a while to reach your box.
Faculty mailboxes Faculty boxes are in 2539 SMB. This room is open from 8:00-11:30 AM and 12:30-5:00 PM weekdays. Mail for faculty should be given to the receptionist.
Pay phones for general use are located near Schoenberg Hall and in the basement near room B503 and the CSO station. A campus phone is located adjacent to the pay phone in the basement.
