The 5,200 square-foot Music Technology Center includes a Music Engineering Lab, two Keyboard/Computer Labs, a Multimedia Instruction and Learning Lab (MILL), an Electronic Music Lab, and a Media-Writing and Production Lab.
It is housed in the Marta and Austin Weeks Music Library and Technology Center, adjacent to all other Frost School of Music facilities.
All of the labs contain computers with flat-panel displays, sophisticated software packages for program-specific work, 5.1 Surround Sound™ monitoring, audio/video playback systems, and video projection capabilities.
The Technology Center is open late and accommodates numerous simultaneous group classes and Frost students working independently on projects. It is also the home of the Piano Preparatory Division for young and adult learners, as well as summer music camps hosted by the Frost School of Music.
The Technology Center’s two computer/ MIDI Keyboard labs are equipped with digital pianos and a group lesson controller that enables professors to simultaneously monitor and instruct students. Each computer is networked to the Frost School of Music local area network (LAN) that allows authorized users to access all of the software, to share files with any other computer on the LAN, or by accessing the University LAN, to share files with any other networked machine on campus or anywhere in the world via the Internet and the World Wide Web.
