Hearing loss isn't such a problem for some drummers

Hearing is a basic tool for all drummers and musicians. The effect of hearing loss for a drummer can be a profound and sensitive issue, and yet is more common than you might think. Help Musicians UK is conducting a survey to learn more from musicians and how they can help. You may remember in 2014 they conducted a survey about the issues that affect musicians at all stages of their career. They found that 47% of musicians who responded to the survey have experienced hearing problems. Also Musicians are found to have nearly four times the rate of hearing loss of the general population and have a 57% greater chance of experiencing tinnitus. So this time they want to know more about how they can help musicians prevent hearing loss and help those who have a hearing problem.

It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete their short survey

The survey is anonymous, and you can choose to enter a prize draw for a £100 iTunes voucher.
