Question Housing non-breeding Male & Female

Hi All -- I know this has probably been addressed before, but I recently added a young male who finger-trained easily during the quarantine period. I have one other budgie -- a female. I'm not interested in breeding and want to continue to work with each bird separately for further training and bonding. I'm assuming it is best to house them in their own cages. Keeping them in separate rooms of the house isn't working because they call to each other incessantly, so I think it is probably best to have the cages near each other. Does this cause psychological stress? Can they still maintain their bond and training progress with me while living next to each other? Should they have out-of-the-cage playtime together for a short period each day? Would really like some guidance. Thank you.
