Protect your hearing

Thanks to the Piano Technicians Guild I had the opportunity to attend an evening class by Dr. Vermiglio (a.k.a. andythedrummer!).

If you did not attend you can still learn a lot from the educational webpages at the House Ear Institute.

Interesting tidbits of information learned…

Some drugs can be severely ototoxic — for example Vicodin may cause permanent hearing loss.

You may have a perfect audiogram and yet have problems detected by the Hearing In Noise Test (HINT).
