School music rooms tend to house a combination of theory and practical work. Sometimes teaching methods occur simultaneously. The combination of practical and theory can cause harm to the teacher and hinder learning for the student. Why? Because the teacher will need to exert more energy to communicate their message to the student, leading to exhaustion and illness. The students will need to spend more time focusing on hearing the teacher as opposed to the information being conveyed, leading to potential misunderstanding of the content.
Students, especially those younger than 13 years of age, have an undeveloped sense of hearing. This means background noise impacts their hearing, comprehending, and learning more than adults. It is important to ensure acoustics in the classroom are optimal especially those younger than 13 years of age.
