About the event
Your child, along with other deaf young people from your area, is invited to attend a 1 day music workshop with a deaf musician from Music and the Deaf;
"Music and the Deaf is a unique UK charity founded in 1988. Led by CEO Danny Lane, a profoundly deaf pianist, the charity continues to go from strength to strength, and has built an international reputation for pushing the boundaries of what deaf people can aspire to and achieve in music.
Hearing loss shouldn’t be a barrier to enjoying and making music. It is proven that participation in music can play a crucial role in a person’s development: it promotes inclusivity, teaches young people how to work together, builds confidence, develops communications skills, and provides a vital outlet for self-expression. We are committed to enriching lives through music."
