Where are all the Deaf musicians?
In a world where one in six people have hearing loss, why are there so few deaf musicians? Deaf violinist, pianist, and singer Eloise Garland talks about her first-hand experiences of auditory diversity and issues surrounding access to music for the deaf population around the globe.
Eloise Garland is a professional musician, music teacher and Deaf awareness campaigner. She is a member of charity Music and the Deaf's FORTE Ensemble, and recently presented the radio documentary Listening Without Ears, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
The Music Research Series is designed to help postgraduate students advance their research and careers. The events stimulate exchange, hones skills, facilitates the creation of professional networks and helps to consolidate the department’s postgraduate community, all over a glass of wine! Attendance is strongly recommended for all postgraduate students (MA, MMus and PGR) in Music but of course undergraduates, music researchers, and visitors from across the college and the community are also most welcome to these public lectures.
