    There is no shortcut to keeping the neighbors happy.

    Remove the windows, brick up the openings.
    Replace the door with something more solid.
    Add studs (2x4 are good, 2x6 will be better).
    Spray in foam insulation between all the studs.
    Two layers of sheet rock.
    Bass traps in all corners (even around the ceiling).
    Acoustical foam on all the walls & ceiling.
    Turn it down.

    Useless for soundproofing. Don't waste your money and time on that. It's only good for acoustic treatment.

    To be fair...I was not making a list of alternatives....I was making a list of all the things to do, in the order to do them.

    Is there any insulation? From reading about speaker building, the pink fiberglass stuff is the best material for sound absortion. Wool is the best natural sound absorber.
    I like to hang wool blankets from my doors. They help keep a little tighter seal against the frame to keep them from rattling and help prevent sound from traveling through. Of course, having a good sold door would be best.
    As for windows, if you don't want to remove them, you can put insulation over them and tack on a sheet of plywood for good measure.
