Presenter: Dr. Heather Malyuk (Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation - Chicago, Illinois)

Hearing wellness is an essential aspect not only of every music professional's health, but also livelihood. While there are professional recommendations and information in regards to hearing health for music educators, teaching this information to music students can often be a very daunting task. This webinar, the eighth and final one in a series related to musicians' health, offers information regarding hearing wellness for musicians as well as practical pedagogical application. As such, it covers basic ear anatomy, causes of auditory injury, protective strategies, learning healthy habits, and resources for music educators.
