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!
