In the following thesis, an acoustic study will be made to gather information concerning the induced hearing loss affecting musicians’ lives. An overall comparison between the types of hearing loss, its reasons and factors, will be studied to be able at the end to conclude ways of ear protection depending on the instrument played, practice rooms and time spent playing the instrument. This study will be like a manual to every musician whether he’s an amateur or a professional, it will focus more on non-classical music performers since there are many classical studies concerning this matter. Questions like: what is NIPTS, TTS, NIHL? What is the maximum sound pressure level, weekly time, and number of times should one be rehearsing? What are the precautions that should be taken before and after rehearsals? Will be answered. This thesis will be divided into three important parts, first the theoretical part displaying the physiology of the ear and explanations subjected to musicians and their lifestyle, the second chapter will demonstrate the studies made and the state-of-the-art concerning the issue along with the norms and directives related, the last part is revealing the statistics of a questionnaire made and a series of measurements to reach the conclusions.
