Thanks to its partnership with the Brise Glace, the USMB offers youfree access to the rehearsal studios on its premises. A total of five rehearsal studios open to all, and a technical team ready and waiting to welcome you!

Conditions of access to studio reservations :

Would you like to rehearse on your own or with other students from the Université Savoie Mont-Blanc?
Come to the studio reception desk during opening hours with a cheque for the deposit (one per musical project) and your student ID. They'll collect the information you need to register, and you'll be able to start booking rehearsals (allow around 30 min). The deposit cheque will only be cashed if you fail to comply with the internal rules (see studio use code).

If you come to rehearse with other people (from outside the USMB), they will have to pay their membership to the association (possible online or on site during opening hours of the ticket office and studios).

Once you've registered, here's what you need to know about renting a studio:

  • It is possible to book up to two rehearsals in advance (1h minimum in small studios and 2h minimum in large studios).
  • Please notify Le Brise Glace as soon as possible in the event of cancellation, so that your slot can be used by someone else. If you cancel less than 48 hours before the scheduled date, the slot will be forfeited.

Feel free to visit the Brise Glace website for more details, and contact them if you have any questions!
