As an Educator, you share every parent’s or guardian’s concern for their child’s well being.  It’s Indisputable, a music education can contribute to childhood hearing loss.  Students in a school band or orchestra, or who take individual or group lessons, can be exposed to noise levels potentially damaging to their hearing.

Even playing a seemingly benign flute or violin can be unhealthy, and exposure to the collective instrument sounds in a band or symphony orchestra only exacerbates the problem.

A SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MUSICIAN IS EXPOSED TO DECIBEL LEVELS ABOVE 120.  EXPOSURE FOR MORE THAN 15 MINUTES A DAY CAN LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT HEARING LOSS IN ONLY A FEW YEARS.

Want to know how many decibels are generated by various musical instruments or types of musical groups? View or download an informative chart.
