Abstract: hearing loss, many of which have nothing to do with exposure to loud noises, noise (or music)-induced hearing loss is theoretically preventable 100% of the time. Loss of hearing is typically a major problem if it happens to dancers and actors, but it is catastrophic for musicians. Thus, it is not surprising that this topic has been covered extensively in Medical Problems of Performing Artists, starting with 'The Musician and Occupational Sound Hazards' by Hart et al. in volume 2, over 20 years ago. Without duplicating the content of those articles, this editorial will try to determine why this remains a somewhat controversial topic in the performing arts and what can be done to move us forward.
