How do we assist Deaf young people in learning to use a musical instrument?

This one day guide will help you to understand a Deaf young musician’s needs…

  • – A guide to understanding Deaf  hearing: the ways in which people with hearing impairments hear and understand music
  • – Introducing and supporting Deaf young people’s instrumental choices: finding the instrument they really want to learn
  • – Practical guidance on adapting teaching methods to the needs of Deaf young people, including language, gestures and choice of repertoire

Music and the Deaf was founded in 1988 by Dr Paul Whittaker OBE, to help deaf people, and those who live and work with them, access and enjoy music.

Yorkshire Youth and Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. We provide music projects for children and young people and train the adults who work with these young people across the Yorkshire region. We are Youth Music’s Musical Inclusion grant-holders for West and South Yorkshire. YYM is Matrix accredited for our advice and guidance services.

This session is part of YYM’s Musical Inclusion professional development programme.

Musical Inclusion is one of Youth Music’s funding modules. The aim of the module is to ensure opportunities exist for children and young people in challenging circumstances to access and progress through high-quality music making across England. Organisations funded to deliver this module are required to have an overview of what music making activity exists in their region, and how they will go about working with regional and local strategic partners to address any gaps in music making provision for children and young people in challenging circumstances. This includes the provision of a range of professional development opportunities relevant to professionals working with these children and young people.
