The Music Equipment Office is responsible for the repair, maintenance, issuance, movement, setup, storage, and inventory control of musical instruments, equipment and accessories for the Department of Music.
Office: MB 1525
CSUEB students, alumni who are current members of the Music Alumni Chapter of the CSUEB Alumni Association, and faculty may check out instruments, equipment, or other needs. All equipment checkouts require the permission of a faculty member. No equipment will be issued without authorization. No student may checkout any materials if he/she has overdue materials still out. Equipment borrowed is due the last day of finals of the quarter during which it is checked out, and can be renewed if needed for performance or rehearsal for the following quarter.
An equipment issuance form must be completed for all equipment that is borrowed. Signature on the issuance form acknowledges that any damage, theft, or loss is the sole responsibility of the signed. Equipment issuance forms are located at the Music Equipment Office (MB 1525).
Lost or damaged equipment is the responsibility of the person whose name appears on the checkout card, and that responsible party will be issued a bill for replacement or repair of the equipment.
Equipment is available for rental to schools, performing ensembles, festivals or other events. Please contact the Equipment Technician for pricing and additional information.
Lockers for instrument storage are issued according to the following conditions and regulations:
CSUEB Recording Services handles all recording of Department of Music events and concerts. This includes the Noon Recital Series, ensemble recitals such as Orchestra, Jazz Ensembles, and Symphonic Band, student degree recitals, and special faculty or guest recitals.
CSUEB Recording Services utilizes an automated recording platform (ARP) in MB 1055 to record all recitals and concerts. ARP will begin recording five minutes before the scheduled event and will record until a half hour after the event is scheduled to end on the CSUEB Events Calendar.
If your recording is held in MB 1055*, it will be entered into ARP.
If your recording is not held in MB 1055, then you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for an estimate for recording services. Fees for recording concerts are calculated on a case-by-case basis.
*ARP is not available in MB 1039, the University Theatre, or the Studio Theatre. This should be kept in mind in those cases when a recital is split between two locations.
