2020 is the 250th birthday of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven. While Beethoven had very few resources as a musician and composer in the 1850s to cope with his increasing deafness, in 2020 we have more resources. In this webinar, Wendy will talk about strategies and devices she uses to make music with a hearing loss and end with a discussion about her nonprofit, the Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss.

Date: December 11, 2020

Time: 4 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. CT, 2 p.m. MT, 1 p.m. PT

Speaker: Wendy Cheng, Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss

Two years after starting piano lessons at age 7, Wendy was diagnosed with a significant bilateral hearing loss. She is a passionate amateur musician who wears bilateral cochlear implants and plays viola, piano and handbells. She has also directed a handbell choir at the federal agency where she works and led handchime workshops during HLAA conventions whenever possible.
