INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC AREA

Space is definitely the issue here. Not only as it relates to the acoustics of the room, but also as it relates to creating a comfortable, functional environment in which to learn music.

These diagrams give you a basic idea of how various sized groups fit into the 1,100 sq. ft. of space.

The students need room and instruments need room (approximately 30" average width per student). When you bring them together there needs to be enough space for elbows to move, bows to slide back and forth, and a music stand in front of every musician. Some instruments are larger, like tubas and basses, and they’ll obviously require twice the space of flutes or violins. A footprint of 1,000 sq. ft. - 1,500 sq. ft. will provide enough instrument playing space for average- sized programs of 45-50 students per band or orchestra. When you plan for your space, it will be important to look beyond immediate needs and to create a space that will allow for the growth of the school.
