*Student Musicians and Hearing Protection: a Multimodal Experiment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Collegiate musicians are often an overlooked population for hearing protection and preservation. They may not fit the occupational hearing risks, consider music as noise, or match interests with adult musicians. Student musicians are heavily influenced by peers and social learning, thus specific measures must be taken to provide hearing conservation that is more inclusive to this population. Short multimodal videos complete with simulations of hearing loss and student musicians’ personal stories of hearing protection and/or hearing loss may be an effective way to influence student musicians’ knowledge, attitudes, and short-term behaviors towards hearing protection and readiness for change. This project is ongoing with testing outcomes in progress.
