Musicians' use of hearing protectors
For possible inclusion in the list:
Can Musicians practice with hearing protectors?
European governments are considering rules for
musicians' mandatory use of hearing protectors during
training, rehearsals and concerts - much in line
with regulations for industrial workers.
However, very little seems to be known of a crucial problem:
How will the use of specially designed protectors affect the
quality of performance for players of various instruments; e.g.
strings, brass, woodwind, percussion? Singers, conductors?
Any information, suggestions and comments on this and related
problems will be welcomed by
