Howard Hall is home of the music department and Reynolds Recital Hall. Strolling the hallways, you may hear a choir practice or a jazz ensemble rehearsal. Individual practice rooms are soundproof, however, so a violinist can practice Vivaldi next door to a trombonist playing Sousa. Check with the music department office for faculty and student recital schedules.

This building was named for MSU’s first bandmaster Louis Howard, 1908-46. Built in 1974 for $4.1 million, the Creative Arts Complex consists of Haynes, Cheever and Howard Halls and houses the College of Arts and Architecture and the department of music.
