"Now we have absolutely no problems with the sound. The sound-proofing is second to none – fantastic"
James Brill, Youth Development Worker, Hollington Youth Centre, East Sussex
Providing a suitable environment in which to rehearse and record music without causing distraction for other musicians, or disturbance to others in the vicinity, can be challenging without suitable sound-proofing. Now Musicpracticerooms.com™ offer a cost effective solution that is keeping musicians at the Hollington Youth Centre happy, without waking up the neighbourhood.
Youth Development Worker, James Brill picks up the story about the two new Music Practice Rooms that have recently been installed at Hollington, Hastings, East Sussex. "We offer young people the chance to engage in music and have been running sessions before the Music Practice Rooms were installed. My main concern was noise pollution and complaints from the neighbours and community." James continued, "Now we have absolutely no problems with the sound. The sound-proofing is absolutely second to none – fantastic," he enthused.
Musicpracticerooms.com™ configure the rooms to suit the space available and offer a complete installation service, as was the case at Hollington. Unlike a traditionally built construction, Music Practice Rooms can soon be ready for use complete with balanced interior acoustics to ensure high sound quality, with lighting and ventilation system for good air quality. 100mm thick sound-insulating wall panels are abutted together and secured and sealed with full-length C-clip fixings, while ceiling panels are secured using an interlocking tongue and groove system. For visibility Music Practice Room doors are equipped with 3/4 length windows and for personal security there is an internal lock override. Tough steel construction and door-seals meanwhile ensure the room’s sound-isolating properties are maintained.
Project Coordinator for Rhythmix, Sam Halligan explained how he had locatedwww.musicpracticerooms.com on the Internet and chosen MPR after evaluating and rejecting other proposals. Commenting on the new facility Sam explained," we used to have just one band practicing in this space, but now we have three. One in each of these two 'pods' and one outside."
James Brill was impressed by the whole process once the truck loaded with the 'flat-pack' music practice room components rolled into Hollington. "The parts turned up on a lorry and were assembled within three days. The level of professional build quality is so good, they are incredibly sturdy," he said. James realized that for insurance purposes locking the doors would be essential and requested alternative lockable door handles. "Within a week they were here. The customer support is absolutely exceptional. Without a doubt I would recommend Musicpracticerooms.com™ to other people."
