      Nice article. I liked it and agree with it.

      My practice room currently serves as my workshop/studio, and it's still for the most part, unfinished. Here are some plans:

      Finish the drywall and paint on the one side. The drywall is up, but not finished or painted.
      Clean up the workshop area - it needs to be organized, but otherwise, it's not bad.
      Frame the other wall, drywall, finish and paint. Currently, it's the white plastic covered insulation that they put on the walls in the basements of new construction.
      Hang drop ceiling with acoustic tile - this is important - otherwise the whole house gets to hear my drumming. I've already got sound attenuating insulation between the ceiling floor joists (this is in the basement) but the acoustic tile will help immensely.
      replace bare bulb with an incandescent, multiple bulb fixture (I have a florescent shop light on the other side of the room)
      decorate
      Add acoustic foam tiles to the walls, as needed.

      As you can see, I have my work cut out for me.

        Practice or practise, that is the question.

                No, actually either way is accepted, although "practise" is considered a variant of "practice", so although it probably technically isn't as correct as "practice", it isn't exactly wrong either.

                According to dictionary.com, "practise" is "chiefly British".

                              My kits in my back room, its a really nice place to play, open and uncramped.
                              Great for band practise, although my amps are so bad, we cant practise there, so we just use a studio
