I have been searching the TM site for the connection between trumpet playing and hearing loss. Lots of interesting discussion on hearing aids, playing with already compromised hearing, use of ear plugs in band performance, etc., but I didnít find a specific answer to the question: Is there a direct correlation between playing on oneís own and loss of hearing? Forgive me if this topic has has already been covered. I just didnít find it. Some interesting links were no longer functioning.
I know fife and piccolo flute players are recommended to wear musicianís ear plugs, even when practicing alone. Does this apply to horn players?
My thanks in advance for replies.
