Did you know? I used to play the clarinet when I was younger?
For those who don’t know, it’s a woodwind instrument and looks like this!
I bet you’re wondering… how can a deaf person play a musical instrument?
Music isn’t the easiest thing for people with hearing loss to access, but there are ways around it!
There are many D/deaf musicians; Dame Evelyn Glennie (percussionist), Beethoven (composer)… more recently; Sean Forbes (rap artist), Mandy Harvey (singer) just to name a few!
I wrote a blog for Hearing Like Me, with some tips to share! Not just for children, but adults too!
The answer is… yes! Never let your hearing loss stand in the way of achieving your dreams!
I hope you enjoyed reading!
