My ear injury has continued to plague me. But I still desire to play the piano, even if I have to use ear plugs. I had musician’s ear plugs made just for that purpose. I have ‘piano’ on my daily list, and it hasn’t been checked off for awhile. I want to return to it.
Friday I talked to my counselor about my ear injury. He looked up ‘hyperacusis’ on Google. Pink noise can be used to help tinnitus and hyperacusis. So I’m listening to pink noise now. Pink noise? What is that? Pink noise has equal energy in all octaves and sounds like a mixture of TV static and ocean waves. In theory, listening to barely audible pink noise for 2-8 hours a day, for 1-2 years retrains the brain to process sounds normally again. Wish me luck.
I’ll let you know if I got back to playing the piano. 4 months ago
