Gary White taught the popular 8 AM music theory classes with great enthusiasm. This class was held in a back classroom of Exhibit Hall. Exhibit hall was remodeled several times as the music department's needs grew. At first the band department had only the big bandroom with two offices and a storeage room. The band library was also in Exhibit Hall, but was accessed by going outside and walking to a door to the East. Later the music department acquired the use of an additional back area which had been vacated by Telecommunicative Arts classes.
