Abstract: We conducted a systematic and comprehensive review of the peer-reviewed scientific literature with respect to hearing loss among musicians, exposure to noise, determinants of noise exposure, and methods for controlling those exposures. Details of the literature search are given in an appendix. A one-page summary of this review is available at http://www.cher.ubc.ca/PDFs/reviews/noiseandhearingloss.pdf We found that both classical and rock musicians are at increased risk of developing noise-induced hearing loss and an associated disease, tinnitus, as a result of their exposure to music.
