Mary Jane Schultz Music Center

The Mary Jane Schultz Music Center provides you with an ever-expanding resource of music and music-related research materials. Located on the fifth floor of Duquesne University's Gumberg Library, this collection of music resources comprises an extensive collection of musical scores and DVD/CDs, online research databases, and a wealth of archival materials, such as our unique collection of the papers and personal belongings of the composer Paul Hindemith.

The late William Schultz, former Duquesne student and Fender Guitar executive, and his wife Mary Jane Schultz made significant financial contributions to the Mary Pappert School of Music, funding noteworthy improvements to the music school's building and helping us establish the Mary Jane Schultz Music Center.

Music Education Instrument Storage Room

The Music Education Instrument Storage Room, along with a variety of cabinets throughout the building, features an extensive collection of percussion, woodwind, string, brass, general music, and Modern Band instruments for use in methods and techniques courses. The collection also includes acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, a full Orff instrumentarium, sheet music, methods books, movement materials, early childhood manipulatives, and sound equipment, all housed on shelves from the Wenger Corporation. The collection is updated regularly to reflect the most up-to-date innovations in PreK-12 music classrooms.

Instrumental Ensemble Library

The Instrumental Ensemble library serves Duquesne's large ensembles by procuring and distributing music for rehearsals and concerts. The library houses an impressive collection of wind band and orchestral works in addition to a small (but growing!) collection of large chamber works.

At Duquesne, we strive for a culture of respect and preparedness in rehearsals and concerts. Our librarians uphold these goals by distributing music several days before the first rehearsal, giving you ample time to take a deep dive into your part and arrive at the first rehearsal prepared and eager to learn and make music.

Our librarians also assist with rehearsal setup, attendance, and a myriad of other behind-the-scenes tasks that allow Duquesne ensembles to excel in rehearsals and performances.
