What is the best instrument for a musician with hearing loss? Part 2.

When it comes to choosing an instrument to learn, both children and adults with hearing loss should consider their hearing loss in the decision making process. A hearing loss will both affect how you hear that instrument, and potentially how quickly you can increase your playing ability, but also that the musician is at risk for further hearing loss due to noise exposure (just like any other musician, with or without hearing loss).

Yesterday, we looked at how to determine what instrument produces sound that will be least affected by your hearing loss.

Today, the article below examines the importance of being aware of the volume produced by the instrument, and the necessity of hearing protection with many instruments.
