Musicians Hearing Services Presentation

There is a growing awareness amongst musicians and the music industry in general about the risks of noise induced hearing loss from loud music. Unfortunately this awareness does not routinely result in good habits when it actually comes to protecting one of our most valuable assets - our ears!

Audiologists, Steve Grayson-Riley from Musicians Hearing Services and Andy Shiach from Advanced Communication Solutions (ACS) will be discussing these issues and provide practical advice including the effective use of ear plugs and in-ear-monitors to ensure musicians can effectively practice their craft now and well into the future.
