Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Teaching Music to the Hearing Impaired
by LaLonde, Kirsten M., M.M.Ed., Minot State University, 2017, 42; 10684252
Abstract (Summary)

Elementary music teachers often have students who are hard-of-hearing participating in their classes. Teachers need to be aware of what hearing impairments are and how these hard-of-hearing students have entered the music classroom. The present text explores assistive hearing technology, general music education for students with hearing loss, adaptations for the general music classroom, instrumental music for students with hearing loss and a brief explanation of song signing. The author attempts to better understand which strategies can be used to improve the music education of hard-of-hearing students.
