What We Do > Talks, Training & Consultation

Part of our work focuses on shifting society’s perceptions and raising expectations of deaf and hard of hearing people, through talks, training and consultation.

Just like our workshops, all of these services can be tailored to your needs so please contact us and see how we can help you. We can also deliver a lot of this work remotely, using video technology - either directly from Music and the Deaf or via one of our broadcasters - location is no barrier!


Music and the Deaf talk by Danny Lane

We have been privileged to deliver talks all around the world, to organisations of all shapes and sizes!

Our inspirational speakers can share their knowledge and experience on topics like:

  • Deaf awareness
  • The lived experience of being a deaf musician
  • Overcoming barriers to deaf people engaging with music

We focus on promoting inclusivity and accessibility, particularly around music. So if you need a speaker for your conference, school or college, community event - or any other type of gathering - to educate and inspire, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Email us at, or call us on 07988 292218.
