Many recognise the importance of music for children with hearing loss, our upcoming webinar will explore the role of music in society, musical development in childhood, and how this links to hearing loss and early intervention. Dr Jeremy Marozeau and Eloise Doherty, experts in hearing loss and music, will also discuss:
- How musical instrument lessons contribute to the auditory processing skills of children with hearing loss
- The ability of children with cochlear implants to identify pitch, duration, intensity, and mood in music
- Music appreciation for those who speak tonal languages
