4th “Beats of Cochlea”, Master Class

Professor Henryk Skarżyński together with the team of the World Hearing Center invites you to participate in the 4th edition of “Beats of Cochlea”, a music event that once again is to show the public vocal and instrumental skills of people who hear thanks to hearing implants. The 4th edition of “Beats of Cochlea” will take place on July 9-13, 2018.

This year we also invite you to musical master workshops, which are part of the program “Music in Human Auditory Development”. We want to create right conditions for musical development of patients with musical talents, and at the same time to show the whole world that thanks to the advances of modem science and medicine, hearing problems are not an obstacle to professional music career.

Many years of our experience show how unusual and great role music plays in the whole process of hearing rehabilitation. Musical master workshops are unique meetings with world-famous masters of instrumental and vocal art. Through everyday contact with music, the workshops will allow participants to develop their skills, broaden their musical knowledge and gain experience.

All classes will be conducted by professional musicians, artists and prominent teachers. The 5-day workshops will end with a show of musical skills, during which participants will present music compositions they have worked on under masters’ supervision.

This year edition of “Beats of Cochlea” is also an important element of the music therapy program “Music in Human Auditory Development”, which we are implementing in the World Hearing Center. Its purpose is to accelerate the process of hearing rehabilitation after hearing implantation, and in the case of people who are artistically talented, to support the development of their musical skills.
