  • A 100-yard artificial turf practice field for the Aggie Band that will eliminate uneven or unsafe rehearsal conditions.
  • Soundproof practice rooms with extended access for students.
  • Ample locker space for students to store their instruments.
  • Four new rehearsal halls with state-of-the-art acoustics and adequate space.
  • Opportunities within the building to tell students, alumni and visitors about the proud traditions of the music organizations at Texas A&M.
