Ref: 14 September 2013


On Saturday 14th September we ran another music workshop for adult CI users at the University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service (USAIS).

The workshop started with a presentation on the challenges of listening to music through a CI, followed by practical rhythm activities and then a computer-based session using the 'Mixer' and 'Looper' applications from the Interactive Music Awareness Programme (IMAP).

Feedback from the workshop was very positive. Using a scale from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree), average ratings given by the attendees for the workshop were as follows:

Fun: 6.4

Difficult: 1.8

Interesting: 6.4

Confusing: 1

Useful: 6.5

Boring: 1

All attendees were very keen to attend future music workshops - we have made a note of this and will be planning more soon!
