    I am involved with a project where they will be building practice rooms which will also be used for lessons. These rooms will be for brass instruments only, must have enough room for 3 players with chairs and stands.

    What I need is suggestions as far as:

    Size - short and wide, tall celing, low celing etc

    Flooring - wood, tile, carpet etc

    Wall construction - brick, stick frame with sheet rock etc

    Window's -?

    or any other ideas/suggestions you have would be appriciated.

    The optimal proportions are the golden men which is about 1.6 /1.6/2.56. That keeps the resonant nodes of the room optimally spread out. My preference is a reflective wall opposed by a "dead" one. You can then pick your favorite to blow into!

    make sure you get recording software built in. My new band room at the high school i go to has 2 practice rooms with different settings (arena, cathedral, practice) etc and you can record yourself. it is awesome.
