Harmonious History

Although its first pro-
fessor was appointed in
1880, the School of Music
was created in 1892 and
unofficially existed until
1929, when it was estab-
lished as a part ofthe Uni-
versity, according to "The
University of Michigan,
A Photographic Saga."
In 1893, the School of
Music Building Associa-
tion, formed by a group of
Ann Arbor citizens, raised
enough funds to purchase
a site at 325 Maynard St.,
according to the book. In
1905, University students
began to receive credit
for courses taken at the
school.
By 1929 the school
outgrew its Maynard
location. Low-quality
acoustics in many of the

rooms meant that recit-
als had to be held in bor-
rowed locations, and due
to high demand, the recit-
als had to be planned one
year in advance, accord-
ing to the book. In 1936,
the school moved to a
new site on Ingalls Mall,
whose proximity to Hill
Auditorium made it a
suitable site for rehears-
als and performances.
But by 1946, the School
of Music once again suf-
fered from a lack of space
and resources, according
to the book. Instruments
were frequently stored in
faculty offices, the library
had only 28 seats, and
practice rooms were lim-
ited. Due to the lack of
space, the school decided
to freeze enrollment at

600 students.
In the 1960s, the Uni-
versity received state
funds to construct a new
building for the school
on North Campus. The
commission was given
to Finnish architect Eero
Saarinen, and the North
Campus Music School
Building was completed
in 1963, according to the
book.
The school now boasts
171 practice rooms, 21
classrooms, 46 studios for
teaching, 25 faculty offic-
es, two rehearsal halls, a
library, audition studios
and recording rooms.
In 2006, the School of
Music was renamed the
School of Music, Theatre
& Dance.
