Wenger Corporation (wengercorp.com) has a Planning Guide for Music Facilities that is very good. They will also consult. Don’t ignore acoustic principles or you might be dealing with hearing loss. I know of one program that OSHA investigated and required all staff and students to wear earplugs! Don’t take the planning lightly. And I agree, administrators and architects who aren’t aware of acoustic requirements will try to go smaller. Educate them and advocate for the program.
No, I don’t work for Wenger 🙂
