No matter why you want soundproof curtains, you can accomplish all of the above cheaply, and on your own with properly selected sound proof curtains.
Below, three types of soundproof curtains are described. Thermal, blackout curtains that remove much of the noise, luxurious soundproof curtains, and acoustic blankets.
Thermal Blackout Curtains For Thermal, Light, And Sound Insulation
Blackout curtains were intended originally to prevent any light from entering through the window, thus affording a good night sleep for people who would be awaken by the first sunrays in the morning. It turns out that, most blackout curtains are also excellent heat and sound barriers as well, reducing the level of sound by as much as 40%.
The reason? Well, for the most part, the same quality, thickness of the material, and high density, which allows thermal and light insulation, will insulate against the sound propagation as well.
The combined effect of blocking the sunrays, and the sound, can mean the difference between sleeping soundly and waking up because of the outside disturbances.
The fact that thermal insulated curtains will stop the sound too is an added bonus that makes such curtains a great buy.

This is the model we like the most: Absolute Zero Curtains.
Remember to select a maximum size that fits the budget. Even if three times wider than the window size, this will still help with sound stoppage.
Luxurious Soundproof Curtains For Home
Luxury soundproofing curtains have the qualities of thermal blackout curtains but are made of the materials that are more pleasant to the touch.
For example, check out the velvety model here: Velvet Luxury Curtain, and the suede model: Eclipse Suede Thermaback Blackout Panel.
Acoustic Blankets As Soundproof Curtains
They do not sport fancy looks, and will thus not be suitable for your living room nor the bedroom.
For insulating the sounds of your garage band, they will do the job superbly, however.
