Lily has started piano lessons. She's been begging to play for a while and now has a month of training under her belt. A few more lessons and we'll post a video.
Lily's ability to sing on pitch, recognize songs, sing all the words and learn about music has already gone well beyond everything we believed when she first received CIs. Adults with AB CIs have reported hearing anywhere from 120 to over 440 pitches. I'm not sure how that correlates with musical notes but Lily's pitch perception must be fairly good.
At school, Lily's music teacher has been collaborating with her hearing resource teacher to incorporate best practices from the SPICE CID curriculum. Lily said her music teacher kept her off the plastic risers today, because they were covered in static and his can of static spray is empty. So we're off to find super-sized cans to replenish the school. Static season is here.
