Marshall ChasinVIP, May 1996

Marshall Chasin

Marshall Chasin, M.Sc., Aud(C), FAAA, is one of the most respected and admired figures in the field of hearing health. His work with musicians and auditory problems associated with the performing arts make Marshall a perfect choice as our VIP for the month of May, and we're very proud to honor him.

Marshal is an audiologist and Director of Auditory Research at the Center for Human Performance and Health Promotion in Hamilton, Canada. The center is commonly referred to as the "Musicians Clinic". He is also the Coordinator of Research at the Canadian Hearing Society, Instructor of Experimental Phonetics at the University of Toronto, and Honorary Lecturer in Communicative Disorders at the University of Western Ontario. Not a bad list of credits, wouldn't you say?

For more than 15 years Marshall's been involved with hearing assessment and hearing aid dispensing. He's the author of more than 80 clinically based articles on hearing, hearing aids, hearing assessment, and auditory problems associated with the performing arts. He's been a music industry consultant and lectured world wide on the relationship between hearing problems and musicians.

The newest venture for Marshall is his book, Musicians and the Prevention of hearing Loss. The book is the first to take a look at every aspect of the prevention of hearing loss and musicians and other performing artists. Marshall writes with a descriptive clarity about hearing protection, musical instruments, room acoustics. The book benefits musicians, sound engineers, and audiologists, with its accurate and easy to understand style. The book includes discussions of environmental strategies for the musician and clinician, and specific case studies highlight the ideas. Marshall's book is a valuable resource to anyone concerned with hearing health and the prevention of hearing disorders. Friends of H.E.A.R. can order the book by contacting Singular Publishing at 1-800-521-8545, or via email at Singpub@mail.cerfnet.com. You can also write a letter to the Singular Publishing Group, Inc. at 401 W. "A" Street, Suite 325, San Diego, California 92101-7904.

Marshall Chasin's commitment to hearing health and to the music industry is of tremendous significance to musicians, music lovers, and concert fans. H.E.A.R. is very pleased to honor Marshall as this month's VIP, and we're happy to bring his accomplishments to the attention of any of our supporters not yet familiar with his great work. Thanks, Marshall, you're definitely a H.E.A.R. sort of guy!
