For musicians with hearing loss -

Hi! My name is Wendy. I’m a new member here and I wear bilateral cochlear implants from Advanced Bionics. I’m also a viola student and play some piano.

I also run a nonprofit for musicians with hearing loss called AAMHL - Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss. We have musicians who wear hearing aids, CIs, hybrid CIs and so on. You can find us online here at

Anyway, I’m writing here to let you all know that my Association is hosting our inaugural conference in Washington DC on May 29-30 of this year. Day 1 (May 29) will focus on making music with a hearing loss. Day 2 (which is open to the hearing loss community in general, not just musicians) focuses on issues related to living with hearing loss. It will be an exciting two days and I hope to see some of you there. The conference website is at:

Best wishes to all,
