Poly Canyon Village was a project by Clark Construction and Architect Niles Bolton Associates that was completed in 2009 that provided housing for upcoming and continuing students. One of the buildings, labeled “Aliso” has constructed the music practice room for students to either play their musical instruments or have it become a convenient area to record, with one particular band “Tin Kitty” having problems with being too loud. Even so, there is potential for this music room to become much more than what it currently is. This paper is a research paper that covers the various materials and methods of acoustical damping, or sound proofing, and various methods used in typical music studio rooms that can further be applied for Poly Canyon Village’s Music Practice Room. The research will provide a background of what acoustical damping is to have readers be familiar with the concept and why each material and method presented can and will be beneficial. This will also be an opportunity to allow readers to be familiar with the concept as it is being applied for a possible renovation for the music room.
