Hear The Music, now in its 5th edition, was written for musicians and represents over 35 years of clinical work at the Musicians’ Clinics of Canada. The topic of hearing loss prevention is something that has evolved from a fringe concept, to something that is now part of the cornerstone of every musicians’ training. Musicians are now, more than ever, aware of the importance of protecting their hearing (and livelihood).
“Richly informative and wonderfully accessible… Marshall Chasin writes with musical passion rare in science writing.” Kathy Peck, Executive Director, Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers (HEAR).

Most often the early signs of hearing loss show up as a temporary
change in one’s hearing threshold. This typically resolves within
16-18 hours and we have all experienced this, especially after a
loud concert or a long day at work- typically a feeling of muffled
sound and perhaps some ringing in your ears. The app measures the
softest sound that can be heard before the music or noise exposure,
and then again after the music or noise exposure. This difference is
a measure of the temporary hearing loss, also known as temporary
threshold shift (or TTS).
