The Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss cordially invites interested musicians with hearing loss to our upcoming virtual conference titled, “Variations on a Theme” on July 16 and 17. This event will focus on the challenges of making aural music with hearing devices such as hearing aids or cochlear implants. Workshops will be held on one of these three tracks: Conservation, Transformation and Recognition.
Presenters include deaf and hard of hearing musicians Rick Ledbetter and Abigel Szilagyi, deaf composers Tyler Mazone and Jay Alan Zimmerman and audiologists Dr. Heather Malyuk, Dr. Marshall Chasin, Dr. Brad Ingrao and Dr. Mead Killion,, We are also pleased to introduce deaf psychologist Dr. Deborah McCaw, who will speak on adjustment to hearing loss as musicians. Dr. Kris Chesky from the University of North Texas will discuss their hearing conservation program for undergraduate students and Dr. Michael Vitalino will look at how to teach aural skills to undergraduate music students with hearing loss.
