Noise reduction for practicing singing
« on: April 13, 2012, 01:58:28 PM »
I've just begun to take some singing lessons, and I'm having difficulties practicing at home. My apartment building is quite old, it was built in 1931, and the walls are quite thick. I rarely hear sounds from neighbors. That being said, I'd rather not hear that horrible KNOCK at the door that indicates that, yep, I've been bellowing too loudly.

I imagine that I might be able to lay some kind of insulation on the interior and exterior of the doors, and possibly install some kind of acoustic seal between on the bottom of the doors, but I just don't know. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I want to do in this room is practice singing. I'm not anticipating making any other kind of noise than that.

deal with sealing up your doors first and then assess the value of reduction and from there we can look at improving the overall system depending on how much more reduction you would need.
