People who make music are often exposed to high sound levels when playing. However, well-founded hearing protection management is rarely part of the education at music schools and colleges. With this project, we would like to make the music-making public more aware of hearing protection and encourage the topic to be anchored in music schools and universities of music. On the one hand, we survey the current hearing protection practice and best practice examples at schools and, on the other hand, we develop target group-specific measures for information and behavioural change. To this end, we seek cooperation with music schools, colleges and the corresponding professional associations.
