Music for Children with Hearing Loss

Lyn E. Schraer-Joiner

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how deaf students have the capacity to perceive musical sounds and are able to perform and respond to music. Alice-Ann Darrow states that music is more aurally accessible than conversational speech; listening to music can help increase one's musical understanding, enjoyment, and aesthetic sensitivity. The chapter also introduces the instrumental music program as a way of helping deaf students decide what instrument they wish to study, while providing suggestions to help music teachers facilitating a positive musical experience for their students; these instruments include keyboards, percussions, brass, and string instruments. The latter part of the chapter discusses the deaf students' involvement in the choral music program.

Keywords:   Alice-Ann Darrow, musical understanding, auditory development, instrumental music program, hearing loss, deaf students, deaf children, choral music program
