Abstract
The rehearsal facility used by the band of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry was studied to determine if the acoustic characteristics of the room could be improved. Measurements were made of the reverberation time and of the sound exposure experienced by bandsmen during rehearsal. It was concluded that a shorter reverberation time was desirable. Replacement of the existing suspended ceiling boards with high-performance acoustic panels was judged to be a cost-effective method of achieving the required room absorption. In those sections of the band where the loudest sound is encountered, increasing the separation between players is the obvious way to effect a reduction in exposure.
