New, improved practice rooms for Five Towns College students.

This petition had 110 supporters

Five Towns College is a performing arts school. Performing arts of all types, whether it is music, theater, etc. requires tremendous amounts of practice. Practice rooms and facilities are a necessity in a school full of creative students that need a place to practice. Currently, our practice rooms are small, unsanitary, and students are often kicked out for lessons because of lack of space. It is understandable that most music schools will never have enough practice rooms, but the amount and condition of the ones we are currently using will not suffice.

Dr. David Cohen, president of the school, plans to keep the old practice rooms, clean and dismantle them, and then move them to the graduate library. Students do not want the same small, poorly kept rooms in a different location. Outside of the fact that they are keeping the existing practice rooms, the location causes many problems. The graduate library is connected to a dorm building, and so it is possible that noise will be heard past quiet hours making it difficult for an RA to determine whether a noise violation is occurring.

The students of FTC would like new practice rooms with more space, and more rooms so that we can practice and improve and make ourselves and our school proud. Rooms dedicated to instrumentalists, vocalists, and pianists. Rooms where we can truly get the practicing we need for our lessons, our classes, and ourselves. If Five Towns College would like to produce outstanding musicians and performers that can make the school proud and encourage recruitment, they must improve the facilities. The students of Five Towns College ask that the president reconsiders moving the rooms, or at least considers initiating setting up new ones within the next semester or two. We would like to take pride in our school, our facilities and our abilities and this is a necessary step for student and college growth alike.
