I’ve got a question for you experienced apartment/close-housing situation people. I’ve moved fairly recently to an apartment and I’m trying to figure out how to play my instruments without stepping on any toes. As far as I can tell, everyone is reasonably polite, but not terribly neighborly. I’ve got at least two slightly older retirees who hardly seem to leave, one directly below me and the other right next door.
I play my mandolin since it’s quiet, but keep it to business hours, but I miss my flute and haven’t had the guts to pull it out yet. There aren’t any rules in the contract about this, and I may be worrying over nothing, but everyone is so quiet and self-contained that I feel like I may rile them up by upsetting the noise balance.
Are there universal etiquette rules for this kind of thing?
Thanks for y’alls thoughts!
