The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of excessive sound pressure levels in the classrooms of four music professors at the University of Tennessee. Each professor was chosen based upon his or her exposure to various sound pressure levels (SPL). A minimum of 10 SPL recordings were taken during the classroom instruction of each professor, and an average SPL (Leq) was calculated. Recordings were taken using a Brüel + Kjær Integrating Impulse Sound Level Meter, Type 2226, set to record decibel (dB) levels based on a 60-second Leq A-weighted (slow response) scale (reported as dBA). The meter was placed next to each director's ear, approximately one to two feet behind each director.
