Putting a piano in an apartment.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it allowed to put a piano in a rental apartment? I am a professional pianist and would like to move to Izmir. I usually practice a couple of hours a day between 10:00 and 19:00. Maybe I would like to have a few private students as well. Will I have to soundproof a room? 

Regards, Neil.

That would depend on your landlord and the apartment you're renting. I have never seen any apartment building rules prohibiting a piano, and there are no laws prohibiting pianos in apartments that I have ever heard of.

It would also depend on your neighbors, of course. In the cheaper apartments the walls can be pretty thin, but if you are living in a more upscale apartment it might be more "soundproof." You could always do a test with some recorded music at the same volume and ask the neighbors if they can hear it in the neighboring apartments, before you actually rent it.

There is a house in KALABAK region in a private complex but it is for sale. In that complex there are 3 piano teachers giving lessons. That's why I asked which region you prefer to live.

That house is large 1+1 . I am not sure if you prefer or not. I am gonna ask if there is any rental one..

Bye

I love hot springs after living in Japan. I like Balcova and the historical area of Konak very much but the apartments are quite expensive. I would like an apartment of at least 80 square metres. I have been looking in Yesilyurt where apartments are more reasonable.

Where is Kalabak? What are the prices for apartments.

I forgot to say that I would prefer to rent, at least for the first year or two.

Regards.

It is between Güzelbahçe and Urla /Urls iskele region. Apprx. far 20-25 km from city center (KONAK). Mostly there are villa type houses at the region. I added a map which is shown  kalabak region in the circle. It is also known Zeytinalanı. 

Actually I recoomend you to search for in Narlıdere or Limanreis region. Yeşilyurt or Konak is little bit low profile. By the way Konak is very wide region where includes Alsancak and Güzelyalı proviences. Please tell me what your budget is for rent an apprtment. Tomorrow I will make a quick search in Narlıdere. 

Bye.
