AbstractA survey conducted to determine music teachers' professional noise exposure in secondary schools and to assess their risk of hearing loss is discussed. For the study, noise exposures of 6 music teachers at six different secondary schools within the same board of education were measured. The results show that there is a potential risk of hearing loss for music teacher. It is suggested that students also can be exposed to high noise levels while playing instruments, but the duration of their exposure is much shorter than the teacher's.
