Q: I recently attended a concert and had a great time but thought it was too loud. Considering how loud it was where I was sitting, I wondered what the musicians would be experiencing in the midst of that noise. How many musicians are damaging their hearing?
A: The correlation between hearing difficulties and musicians is quite high. Professional musicians are almost four times as likely to develop what is called noise-induced hearing loss compared to the general population. But that’s not the only concern musicians have; tinnitus is also known to develop.Add a comment
