The School of Music recognizes the importance of safety for all students and faculty. In addition to the standard, and frequent, safety training offered by the University for all students and faculty, the School of Music wishes to make all musicians cognizant of the potential dangers of their aural environment. Musicians should always be aware of the sound level around them, both in performance/rehearsal settings as well as in all general daily activities. Every member of the School of Music faculty will explain to students at the beginning of each semester the possible consequences of loud sound environments, how to determine dangerous situations and possible solutions.
