Hi all, If I can scrounge the extra funds, I'm considering getting hold of a little extra room for a studio. Getting a bigger apartment with an extra room would cost about the same as renting a small jam room elsewhere, so I'm just wondering which you folks would choose if given the option. I'd be using the so-called studio for mostly teaching, with some recording and rehearsal. I'll throw out what pros and cons I can think of - please feel free to add to them if you wish. Extra Room in Apartment Pros: More convenient for personal practice, no distance to travel to play, more secure, probably slightly lower cost Cons: Limited volume, more inconvenient for teaching and practically impossible for rehearsal, more distractions Separate Rehearsal/Studio Space Pros: No volume constraints, more convenient and professional for lessons/rehearsals, less distractions Cons: Time restraints, higher cost (and probably non-claimable on tax returns), less secure, distance, less convenient for personal practice Thanks in advance!
