Marc Fagelson discusses how not just hearing loss, but tinnitus and hyperacusisand impairments to an individual’s ability to process music can adversely affect one’s quality of life, as well as their overall interactions from a societal and personal perspective. He explains the processes and anatomy underlying our music perception so that as clinicians we can be better advocates for our patients, thus enhancing their participation in music-related activities and preventing avoidance behaviours.
