Music to My Ears

Music Enrichment Program

Music to My Ears is a program for children who have varying degrees of hearing loss. Through the use of music and movement, children will be engaged while developing their listening and speech/spoken language skills. Activities will target the stages of auditory development (detection, discrimination, identification, and comprehension). The program is offered by the Center for Independence at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. Professionals from Speech-Language Pathology will work with children who participate in this program.
