Music Room

The music room affords students a large, mixed-use space to work on individual compositions or to collaborate in a group setting. The large ensemble rehearsal space is capable of accommodating rock bands, jazz groups, vocal and instrumental ensembles, as well as a custom sound system to support in-class performances by music students and guest musicians.

The music department utilizes two Line Array speakers, contributing rich sound to students’ music. Each music technology and music theory student is provided with a MIDI keyboard, laptop, and headphones for composition and sound design.

The music room also provides ample storage space to suit each student’s needs. The classroom houses a custom-built guitar wall and instrument lockers capable of holding everything from a flute to an upright bass.

Studio 38

Drama classes, plays, and concerts are held in Studio 38 in the Poetz Theater.  Studio 38 is named after the theater troupe Saint John Paul II was in as a high school teenager. Before he became Saint John Paul II, Karol Wojtyla showed great interest in theatre. While a university student, he joined an experimental theatre group known as Studio 38.  Studio 38 embodies Saint John Paul II’s message to “Be amazed at the heights to which you are called.” Our fully-functioning theater space includes a scene shop, dressing rooms, tool room, and a prop/costume storage loft all renovated in 2021. The stage is equipped with a Strand Lighting control system and PAR can, in addition to Fresnel and ellipsoidal lighting instruments. Performances are made even more dynamic with designs run on an ETC Smartfade light board. The newly installed acoustic paneling ensures high sound quality.

All the great facilities and equipment are brought to life by the energy and spirit of Marin Catholic students. Studio 38 is a place that many students call home to play, perform, make good friends, and create lasting memories.
