As a part of the IB curriculum, the school needed high quality music teaching facilities which included music practice rooms, a recording studio and a high quality performance area within an auditorium.
Among the instruments being taught were the drums and electronically re-enforced instruments like the electronic keyboard, electric guitar, etc. all of which contributed to a very high decibel sound.
The Problem- Sound from each of these rooms should not disturb practice happening in the adjoining rooms.
The studio uses highly sensitive microphones which would pick up even low level external sounds leaking into the studio.
The auditorium adjoins the music room facility and contains speakers that are extremely powerful.
The entire facility is located directly above classrooms which cannot be disturbed by the sound generated within the music facilities.
The solution- The facilities were designed to minimize cross-talk and the only vulnerable arean were the doors. Sound and About Doors were fitted to complement the treatment and complete the solution.
