The building, constructed in 1981, is named in honor of distinguished Tennessee composer Charles Faulkner Bryan who was an early music faculty member at Tennessee Tech University.
The 55,000 square foot facility includes:
- Wattenbarger Auditorium, a 500-seat concert venue
- 28 faculty offices/teaching studios
- four music classrooms and two art classrooms
- individual and small ensemble practice rooms
- large ensemble rehearsal space

The School of Music at Tennessee Tech presents over 200 recitals and concerts annually. The schedule features large ensemble concerts (bands, choirs, orchestras, jazz ensembles), faculty solo recitals, student solo recitals, chamber groups, and a vibrant guest artist concert series.
All performances are held in the Bryan Fine Arts Center on the stage of Wattenbarger Auditorium. The auditorium offers superb acoustics and features a large stage, professional audio and lighting systems, and a three manual, twenty-seven rank pipe organ crafted by Schantz (Op. 384). The School recently added a new Steinway Model D concert grand piano—the second of two pianos assigned to the auditorium.
