Acoustics of World Class Rehearsal Spaces

  • thumbnail for Michael Ferch
  • Music teaching and learning requires a developed skill called critical listening, yet most rehearsal spaces fall short in their ability to foster this skill. The session focuses on four critical elements related to the fundamental requirements of the music suite, and will give you the ability to not only understand what you need, but be able to communicate why you need these fundamental requirements to get to the ultimate goal - a successful and functional music suite. We will also review both the basics of acoustical requirements for music learning and investigate ways in which many shortfalls can be addressed through new, innovative acoustical treatment solutions.
