While practicing flute I noticed I find it much easier to have a good tone when I practice in my living room then when I practice in my normal (music)room. I was thinking that this could be because of how the room acoustics influence the sound.
My living room is spacious, while the other room is a lot smaller, more cluttered and has a large surface covered with textile.
I find it easier in my living room to get a big clear sound out of my flute, making me more comfortable and relaxed, which makes me sound even better. In the small room it's a lot more difficult to get a good sound, I have to push more and generally struggle in the high register.
I'm not sure if this can be attributed to the room accoustics and how it would influence my playing. I think I am less hesitant to play louder in the large room, which makes it easier to make a well supported sound, making all other aspects easier. But I also wonder if it's subjective because I maybe get more feedback in the small room and I'm more aware there of the faults in my sound. I'm only guessing and have no idea!
I ask this question to know what's the best room for efficient practice, and if I have to do something about the accoustics in my normal practice room? Is the best room to practice in the large living room, that encourages me to fill the room but maybe hides my faults, or is it the small room, where I instinctively make my sound smaller but makes me aware of how I sound?
There's another question that kind of asks the same for voice, but it doesn't really answer the question I'm asking here: Room Acoustics for Singing
