Sounding Out: A toolkit for music practitioners working with deaf students

In September 2018, Katie and Tiziana Pozzo worked with the arts charity, Creative Futures, to produce an online toolkit for music practitioners working with deaf children.

“Sounding Out” is a comprehensive resource to support music leaders and school teachers who work with deaf children, and is a culmination of the experiences and learning from across a 3-year programme in specialist schools for deaf children funded by Youth Music.

The toolkit consists of two sections, a theoretical introduction and a practical section with step-by-step guides to creating warm-up activities, musical games and main activities, supported by video examples. This free resource can be found on Creative Futures’ website here.

There is also an in-depth blog post about the creation of the toolkit here!
