BBC Interview For Our Audiologist
‘Before you pick up any instrument or think about singing a single word if your hearing is impaired your performance will be too’.
On the 26th of September our very own hearing protection specialist and hearing aid audiologist, Tom Dixon was asked by the BBC introducing producer Andrew Marston to attend a local live recording at the Oxford Arms in Kington, Herefordshire. He was interviewed about all the work he is doing locally to raise awareness to hearing loss and tinnitus through over exposure to loud music. ‘musicians don’t realize how important protecting their hearing is until it’s too late’, Tom told Andy that he see lots of people in his Hearing Centre that are suffering from the side effects of loud music, there is no need for it, the protection is out there it just needs to be known about and worn. Tom works with Tower studio’s to provide regular talks to musicians trying to raise awareness to the side effects of loud noise.
