Yesterday we recevied a letter from EH saying a complaint had been lodged regarding music noise from our property.
I spoke with EH this morning and found out that a neighbour has complained about "piano playing, sometimes late at night past 10pm".
I didn;t realise that my playing (I am a professional pianist) was annoying the neighbour so much, and to be honest, I didn't think that 10pm was late
Alix wrote:However, could anyone help with the best course of action now? The neighbour didn't speak to me about this first so the letter from EH was the first I knew they were upset. The letter has really upset me as I'd hate to think I was distressing someone with my playing.
EH won't tell me which neighbour complained either (I am in the middle of a terrace) and I don't want to talk to the wrong one about it!
I know I need to talk to the neighbours though and would appreciate some thoughts/suggestions on what might appease them. I will, of course, stop playing by 10pm now but what else can I offer to do?
I don't want to be in the situation where the neighbour tells me what time to play, nor do I want to upset them, nor do I want to creep round my own home for fear they may complain again.
