Christian Talley Research Study on "Hearing Comparison between Musicians & Non-Musicians".

Christian M. Talley, age 13, is the son of Jazz Musician Ken Talley, Sr. and Gigi Talley. He is in the 7th grade at The Altamont School in Birmingham, Alabama and is a member of Unity of Birmingham. Christian likes art, photography, music, reading and (of course) video games. He began his project because he realized that many people listen to loud music and he wanted to find out if it would have an effect on hearing loss. So he thought about the fact that his father is a musician and is constantly working in loud musical environments - unprotected. Christian decided to base his project on hearing and musicians.

The musicians who participated in the study were of a variety of backgrounds musically; jazz, rock, reggae, R&B, etc. Most were of the same age range which can also be said of the non-musicians who participated. Christian received the "Honorable Mention" award for the "Junior Medical Division" of the southeastern area science fair competition for grades 7 - 12 for The Altamont School for his project "Hearing Comparison between Musicians & Non-Musicians". He said that he would like for his project next year to build on this one. H.E.A.R. is proud to recognize Christian for his great talent and skills. Congratulations Christian on your paper!
