The University of Alabama

The University of Alabama School of Music is proud to announce the completion of one major construction project and the beginning of another. The newly renovated and redesigned Butler practice field (the classroom for the university’s famed “Million Dollar Band”) was opened in August 2015, affording the marching band a state-of-the-art environment in which to rehearse.

Immediately following the conclusion of that project, work began on a new 26,000 ft. addition to the existing Moody Music complex. The new addition will house two new rehearsal spaces (one large and one medium-sized), new faculty offices, student locker room and storage facilities, common spaces and additional conference room and classroom facilities. Although primarily dedicated to the university band program, this new addition to the existing facility will serve the entire School of Music at large. Completion is slated for July 2016 and we anticipate full use of the facility by fall semester 2016. This will give us a much-needed increase in

space to match our growing numbers and evolving program needs.

In addition to new and enhanced facilities, we are very proud to announce the appointment of eight new additions to our faculty. They are: Jacob Adams, viola; Jeremy Crawford, tuba/euphonium; Kevin Chance, piano; Edisher Savitski, piano; Amir Zaheri, composition; Rob Alley, jazz studies; Joshua Mailman, music theory, and Benjamin Crofut, string bass. We are very pleased to have these new faculty members joining the dynamic and professionally engaged faculty already active in Tuscaloosa.

Our faculty remain highly engaged as performers and researchers in every aspect of music study and application across a comprehensive spectrum. This year will see over 250 public concerts along with many more presentations, symposiums, workshops and clinics. I encourage you to investigate all that is happening at the University of Alabama School of Music by contacting any of our faculty members or investigating our website:

We look forward to the opportunity to share additional news with you in the future as we continue to grow in every capacity and realize the completion of these exciting projects.
