Music Rooms at Christ’s

Music Practice Room, New Court Basement

Instrumental players may practise here without disturbing anyone, and an upright piano and drum kit are also available. We expect the room to be used for music practice only and to be kept in a good condition; please get in touch with the chair to discuss using the room, and you can be added to a list held by the porters. To use the practice room, please book a time slot at the porters’ lodge, and then request the key from the porters. Access to this room is down the stairs next to the JCR and straight ahead.

Chapel, First Court

The chapel houses a Kawai grand piano and a Bishop organ. Only those students who demonstrate to the chair that they have reached at least Grade 6 standard may use the piano. Please contact the chair if you are an appropriate standard, and you will be added to the Piano List kept by the porters. Once on the list, you may book a time slot at the porters’ lodge, and then request the key to the piano from the porters. Use of the organ is generally restricted to the Organ Scholars, but please contact the chair to enquire about access. The chapel may also be booked by instrumentalists for private practice or for chamber music rehearsals. Please book a time slot at the porters’ lodge.


Plumb Auditorium, Z Staircase

A Bechstein grand piano is available in the Plumb Auditorium during Michaelmas and Lent terms. Only those students who demonstrate to the chair that they have reached at least Grade 8 standard may use this piano. Please contact the chair if you are an appropriate standard, and you will be added to the Piano List kept by the porters. Once on the list, you may book a time slot at the porters’ lodge, and then request the key from the porters. Access to this room is on the top floor of Z staircase.
