Hear That? MusiCares Wants To Help Protect Your Hearing
It is difficult to overstate the importance of developing good, consistent hearing health habits as a working musician or music industry professional. Our ears are our bridge to the music that is our livelihood.
That's why MusiCares makes it a priority to make sure that touring musicians, crew, and other music professionals have ample opportunity to learn about how they can start taking long term steps to protect their ears by being present a numerous festivals, conventions and live music events. Alongside their top tier partners in the fields of auditory protection and hearing sensitivity technologies, MusiCares is always on site to educate, provide free hearing tests and examinations, and to conduct free moldings for custom ear plugs and in-ear monitors.
Here are some words of praise from just one of the many artists and music people who've benefitted from MusiCares' hearing health initiative:
I had a very pleasant experience with MusiCares and just want to share it with you guys. I just moved to Nashville from Chicago. Three years ago, there was a hearing clinic in Chicago that I attended and Sensaphonics tested my ears and sized me up for in-ear monitors and you guys paid for it all. I think that is super rad and I need to say thank you to you and them. What you do for musicians is invaluable. Thanks a million to you guys!
