Hearing impairment/deafness

Many deaf children and young people enjoy listening to or making music as much as hearing children and young people.


All experiences of hearing loss are unique to each person, and being deaf doesn’t necessarily mean that a person can’t hear anything. There are some great resources available for music teachers and other professionals  to help support you to work with deaf and hard of hearing young people.

One in six of the UK population are deaf or hard of hearing.
