Hey Aimee,

An average price for labour only on tile is around $8.50 per. sq. ft. included in that price the person laying the tile should be using the (R.L.S.) clip system...Google RLS tile system if you don't know what they are. Are you laying the tile on a wooden sub-floor, if so you should be using (Detra) under the tile.

Framing is around $10.00 per. sq. ft. on a ceiling, Roxul-Insulation is a good choice for sound damping. And if your budget allows you could use (Quiet rock) drywall, it's very expensive but works great. Last year we used it in a sound studio that does' TV work and the manager of the studio loved it.
