'Brass Bands England are determined in their mission to make banding accessible for everyone. This training session will provide an introduction to deaf awareness and explore specific strategies that can be utilised in the band room to enable access for deaf and hard of hearing players. These strategies are developed from real experience, as I am deaf myself; I wear two hearing aids due to my severe to profound hearing loss.
I very much look forward to sharing these strategies with you to aid our movement to remove communication barriers and become as inclusive as possible.'
