Our 17 practice rooms, all equipped with a piano, are ideal for Music students who need a private place for practice.

As well as these rooms, ECA music students have access, with permission, to play the 21-stop 2-manual German organ in the Reid Concert Hall, and an experimental organ and 2-manual pipe organ both situated in Alison House. Harpsichords are also available.

In addition, limited special practice facilities are available to students who are percussionists, part of small ensembles, bagpipe players or players of amplified instruments.
