It is easier to work through the ceiling below. Even if the floor has to be changed it is easier to remove the plywood on a floor than the ceiling. Fiberglass insulation in the floor would be most effective. Additionally installing a carpet over a pad on top of the floor would make the soundproofing more effective.
