School events and performances are recorded and digitalized for a database. In addition, the faculty of the School holds rare sound sources and the ones recorded after the Japanese colonial rule in the early 1900s, which serve as another important archive to study traditional arts.

The room is open to students after classes so that they practice as a group. There are expensive pyeongyeong and pyeonjong ? traditional instrument used in the royal court- and two grand pianos for the ensembles of traditional and newly-composed music.
The School has purchased traditional music instruments including the ones frequently used in wind and string ensembles but expensive for individuals to afford. The instruments, mostly for Korean traditional music, are used in classes. The School also lends the instruments for free to students who cannot afford to buy them.
This is for the School’s recording production. A minimum number of, but efficient recording equipment strongly supports students in their artistic activities. Students record not only traditional but also self-composed music in the room.
