Reduce Sound (Ceiling)?? HOW??


Hi, I’m in the process of finishing my ceiling. I want to reduce the amount of noise going between the floor, however I was not sure if I should purchase sound panels, extremely thick drywall, etc.

I don't need to eliminate any noise passing between the floors, I just want to substantially reduce the noise so I can play music without disturbing the entire house.

Dont want to spend over $800 for materials...roughly
