Hey guys, please help me.
I'm a professional violin artist and violin teacher too. More than 100 students are coming to my home in Ontario for learning violin . The street near my home was really calm and quite till last year but now it has become one of the most crowded streets of Ontario. Now it's very difficult to play violin in this disturbing atmosphere. One of my students suggested to soundproof the windows or to replace the windows with soundproof ones. Is it worth ? He suggested a company too. ( http://www.clerawindows.com/ ) What is your opinion guys? Please help me.
My opinion is.... if you are teaching more than 100 students to play violin then you should be able to afford to rent or buy a studio somewhere, maybe a basement studio. You must be rolling in $$$$.
The window's in the advert, don't look any different than any other window on the market and surely don't appear to be sound proof.
Actually this thread looks to me like a cheap way to get advertisement for "Cleara Windows".
You may want to install 3" bullet proof glass in the openings.
If this is a legit post, then one solution would be convoluted foam (as used in sound studios) fitted in a frame that can be placed in the window openings. it will also reduce echo in the room.
I've done work in several sound studios (as a contractor, not a musician) and can tell you that true sound-proof glass is very expensive!
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
