How to Build a Band Rehearsal Room in the Garage


Anyone knows that in order for a band to make good music, they need a comfortable working environment. Making a space to call your own helps to foster creativity as well as limits annoyances to those around you. Using the garage as a rehearsal room adds new challenges because of its proximity to the neighbors and its primary usage for storing tools and machinery.

Things You'll Need

  • Area rugs
  • Sound absorbing foam
  • Make your own space. Normally garages aren't empty waiting for you to stack your amps. You need to figure out where you're going to store your stuff especially if you're living with someone else who's using the space.

  • Install sound absorption material in the rehearsal room before you begin moving your instruments into the rehearsal space. Soundproofing foam is cheap and easy to install. This also helps to reduce complaints from neighbors.

  • Throw down some area rugs or old pieces of carpeting. Not only does this help in dampening sound and reducing echo, it also makes your garage space more comfortable and relaxing.

  • Organize your instruments to maximize space. Stacking amplifiers and tying wires together is a great way to save space. Also, make sure there is an open space in the middle so that you and your band mates can face each other while you play.

  • Add some furniture to make it more comfortable. A cheap futon, a beanbag chair or even a mini fridge can help to improve the mood by creating an inviting atmosphere for you and your band mates.

  • Remove distractions. TV and video games are fun, but you're there to make music.
