New Music Building: Lewis Center for the Arts Complex

Inside New Music Building
New Music Building at the Lewis Center for the Arts
A New Music Building opened in Fall 2017 to supplement the Woolworth Center of Musical Studies, the center of our department, as part of the new Lewis Center for the Arts Complex. The New Building expands the resources available to our expanding performance programs.
New Music Building Overview

The three-story building will include a two-story, 3,500-square-foot, acoustically isolated Lee Family Music Performance and Rehearsal Room with soaring 30-foot ceilings and equipment for professional-quality audio recordings. An 800-square-foot jazz studies studio is one of several specialized teaching facilities in the New Music Building. A large number of acoustically advanced practice rooms and teaching studios are located on the second and third levels, featuring brand new pianos from Steinway & Sons. The practice rooms and teaching studios are suspended from the roof structure to assure sound isolation. Each teaching studio has room for a teacher, student and up to two grand pianos. Several rooms also include audio recording and playback systems.

The Princeton University Orchestra, Princeton University Sinfonia, Jazz at Princeton University, piano lessons, large-instrument lessons, and some small-instrument lessons will be housed in the New Music Building. Graduate programs, academic classes, the Princeton University Glee Club, student ensembles, vocal lessons, and some small-instrument lessons will continue to take place in the Woolworth Center.
