Music rooms

The Queen’s practice rooms are being renovated and so will be closed until the 28th January 2023. If this causes any difficulties, please send us an email!

The college has two practice rooms available to use by students, each with an upright piano (and Music Room 1 now has two uprights!). Music Room 2 also contains a drum kit, and some music from the old Queens’ jazz band. The rooms are located in Lyon Court, and can be booked using the spreadsheet on the JCR website (

We are looking into how we can improve these spaces and replace broken equipment. Please email if you have any concerns/ ideas so we can make sure we are kitting out the rooms suitably for all their users!

Permission to use it can be sought be emailing the MagSoc President (
