Musical instruments

It is reasonable for people to practice their musical instruments at home. Up to one hour practice a day is likely to be reasonable and not a nuisance.  If you are being disturbed by music practice speak to your neighbour, you could try to agree a time for practice that suits you both.

However, loud and persistent playing of musical instruments can be a statutory nuisance

If you are being disturbed by music practice or feel uncomfortable speaking to your neighbour you can report the issue to us. We will assess if the noise is a nuisance and we will first use an informal approach to resolve the problem.
