Music Yukon Resource Centre

COVID-19: Resource centre & jam space closed until further notice

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Music Yukon will be closed until further notice. This closure includes the office, the rehearsal space, and all gear rentals.

This has been a difficult decision that is not taken lightly. Our top priority is the health and safety of our members and our community.

Existing bookings
For the time being, all bookings for the next two weeks (March 17 to April 1) will be cancelled, at which point we will assess whether the space can be reopened. We will also not be able to accept new bookings during this time.

Credits and refunds
If you have pre-paid for a rental, we are happy to apply your payment as a credit to a future booking. We can also issue refunds on request, and will do our best to do this as quickly as we can.

We urge everyone to please respect these safety measures and do not attempt to enter the jam space unless you have explicit permission from a staff member.

We understand this is a difficult time for many. Please keep us posted on issues you’re facing as we move through this challenging time together. This information can help guide us as we prioritize our work over the coming weeks. We’ll be working hard from our homes in the meantime to plan our next steps, and do all we can to support our music community (from a safe distance!).

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have questions or concerns, you can reach us by email at staff@musicyukon.com

For information, rentals and appointments, please contact us at staff@musicyukon.com.

The Music Yukon Resource Centre is located at 3128 3rd Avenue in downtown Whitehorse, Yukon. The centre offers wireless internet, computers and basic office resources, including photo-copying, printing and scanning. Members and visiting musicians commonly use the centre as their downtown office.

It also serves as a great meeting and networking place and a place where musicians can take out their instruments and practice or jam or just play for the fun of it.

The Music Yukon Resource Centre is currently open by appointment only. Email us at staff@musicyukon.com to set up a meeting.

Rehearsal Space & Sound Gear Rentals

Rehearsal Space Rentals

To request, please contact us at staff@musicyukon.com.

A rehearsal/teaching space is available to rent to Music Yukon members in the basement of our Resource Centre. Included in the rental is access to a drum kit and a PA system.

The hope is that, by renting out this space, Music Yukon can provide the music community with an accessible and affordable place downtown to practice, teach or jam, as well as to expand its own presence and membership in the community.

The rehearsal space is available to rent weekdays from 5pm to 11pm (from 3pm onwards for teaching/instruction and meetings), and weekends from 8am to 11pm.
