We will copy this into your LISTENING LOGS on Tuesday Fen 13th

#2) We won't have a chance to First view this together, however, it is another example of a GREAT TALENTED musician with a disability

Evelyn Glennie is a master percussionist who, from the age of 12 has lost more than 80% of her hearing,,, she is profoundly deaf
however, she never let that hold her back... she encourages all people to be better listeners !! During the week check this TED TALK
