A multi-media, interactive workshop for KS3 and above exploring the dangers of listening to music too loud. With the use of guitars, drums, video and sound, learners are provided with a practical guide to; the anatomy of the ear; the basics of the decibel and loudness; types of hearing damage caused by listening to music too loud; what tinnitus is and how to protect our ears whilst not losing street cred'.

Workshop leader, Lee Bloomfield, is a recording engineer, musician and lecturer at Leeds College of Music. He has trained as a lay counsellor with the British Tinnitus Association, and has an interest in educating children in the health risks associated with listening to personal MP3 players at levels that 60 years ago would only have been experienced by industrial workers.

The workshop runs for approx' 90 minutes, but can be adapted to suit the needs of the school as necessary.
