TItle: Apps and assistive technology which are useful for musicians with hearing loss
Many of us who have hearing loss use several smartphone apps to help us with our music studies.  Wendy Cheng will facilitate this discussion of apps for music students.  Please be ready to share what apps and/or hearing assistive technology you use!

Title:  Handbell clinic
Handbells are a wonderful way to develop ensemble skills.  In this clinic, Wendy Cheng will demonstrate and discuss ringing basics and ringing/malleting techniques.  No previous experience with handbells is required.  

Title:  Techniques for Memorizing Music
Guitarist Charles Mokotoff will share his strategies for memorizing music.

Title: Developing and Maintaining Your Singing Voice Despite Hearing Loss

Musicologist and singer Johanna Paetzold, who is a CI recipient herself, will share her experience as vocal teacher on how to develop or maintain your singing voice despite hearing loss and provide some hands-on exercises for the participants of the music retreat. She has worked with adult CI recipients on the topic singing and developed a workshop called Explore the Potential of Your Voice – Singing for Adult CI Users
 

Title:  New venues to showcase your music
Classical music students  can benefit and learn from how music is presented in different/less formal venues.   Blue O'Connell is a folk musician who also plays classical works.  In this presentation, she will discuss how amateur musicians who love to perform can take their acts to less formal venues and have a good time.
