Upstairs neighbor and clarinet
Hey everyone...I was wondering if you could give me some advice as to what to do about my upstairs neighbor. Every Monday (sometimes sunday) she holds clarinet lessons for some children from about 4pm to 9pm. Since she lives directly above us, so the sound from the clarinet goes directly down and fills our living room. We have tried to ignore it and turn our television up, but even that has not been enough to drown the noise out. When we asked if there was any way to suppress this, the woman claimed that this is part of her income and can do nothing about it. Now, I'm not totally unreasonable, and i try to understand that....but in all fairness, she signed the same lease my husband and I did....the one that states no loud music (of any kind) is permitted. I even called my management office to explain the situation and they just told me how my neighbor was a part of a local orchestra, so thats why we kept hearing music and that they can't do anything about the noise because it doesn't occur after 9pm (although my lease does not say anyhting about certain times) They also stated that if we "wanted to" (in a rather annoyed tone) we could come down to the office and file a formal complaint. I don't want to cause any trouble for my neighbor, I simply want her to be a little more considerate of her neighbors. I love my apartment and plan to move in a year and a half...so i dont want to move out now....I just wonder if anyone has any suggestions as to what i can do to peacefully change this. Thanks a lot for your replies.
