Music is a gift in this noisy world, playing an important role in the lives of many hearing impaired people. Cochlear Europe Ltd is delighted to announce an exciting one day music workshop for professionals and recipients.
Cochlear welcomes Richard Reed from the USA, as keynote presenter for this workshop. Richard is a professional musician who lost his hearing and after receiving a cochlear implant, is enjoying performing and recording his music again. Richard has worked with Cochlear to share the music and materials that helped him to regain his appreciation and enjoyment of music.
This one day workshop invites you to learn how to effectively develop music appreciation and will dispel some of the myths through practical tips, advice and theory.
The workshop is open to all teenagers and adults who use Baha and cochlear implant devices as well as professionals. Topics will include ’everyday music tips’ and a lively interactive drumming workshop for recipients hosted by the renown Bigstixs group. Professionals will gain insights into using HOPE notes to deliver music-based rehabilitation and training. A grand finale musical performance will complete the event for all to participate in and enjoy. Participants will receive a complementary copy of the HOPE notes package.
The workshop will take place on Sunday 11 July 2010 at Djanolgy Recital Hall, Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham.
