Crouch Music Lab

Introduction and Purpose

The Crouch Music Lab is a specialized instructional technology center for music applications. The Lab is located in the Listening/Viewing area of the Arts and Special Collections Research Center. It is available for use during all regular Library hours, except when it is reserved for a class or seminar.

A valid Bear ID and password are required to log in to the computers, so they are not available to library guests.

There are 12 student work stations in the Lab, plus an instructor station, and each includes a high-performance iMac computer and a MIDI keyboard controller.
