How can a deaf person enjoy music?
July 11, 2009 2:02PM
While deaf people do not enjoy music in the same way that hearing people do, they can feel the vibrations with their skin, especially if the music is sufficiently amplified or is conducted by means of a chair that is designed for that purpose.

How do deaf people hear music?
Deaf people sense vibration in the part of the brain that other people use for hearing - which helps explain how deaf musicians can sense music, and how deaf people can enjoy concerts and other musical events. These findings suggest that the experience deaf people have when 'feeling' music is similar to the experience other people have when hearing music. The perception of the musical vibrations by the deaf is likely every bit as real as the equivalent sounds, since they are ultimately processed in the same part of the brain.

How is it that many deaf people are able to enjoy concerts and dancing?
Would a deaf person have deaf babies?
Not necessarily. Only if the deafness was obtained genetically. For example, I am a deaf person, but it was not hereditary. Therefore, I will not have deaf children. However, if a deaf person is deaf from hereditary factors - (i.e. the mother is deaf or the grandfather is deaf) - it indicates that there is a gene that carries the deaf factor, which means that it is possible for a deaf person to have deaf children.

What is a deaf interpreter?
A Deaf interpreter is a Deaf person who is a native user of (ie) American Sign Language-ASL, and a member of the Deaf community. The interpreter can work as a bridge between a Deaf person, an interpreter and the non- signing hearing person. For example, the Deaf person may be from another country, and cannot rely on the interpreter alone, the Deaf interpreter watches the interpreter then modifies the communication in order that the Deaf person has a better understanding of the message. You may have meant interpreter for the Deaf?

Asked in Fetal Development
Having a child with deaf person?
What exactly is your question? The chances of having a deaf or hearing child? If the person you have a child was deaf from hereditary reasons (i.e. there is multiple deaf people in his/her family), that means there is a possibly of having the deaf gene being carried down to your child. Therefore, there is a chance of having a deaf child. But if the deaf person is not deaf due to hereditary reasons, then your child will not be deaf.

Asked in Composers, Ludwig van Beethoven
How did Beethoven make music when he was deaf?
Ludwig Van Beethoven made music when he was deaf by feeling vibrations and hearing the music in his head. He didn't become deaf until later in his life, so he had music theory well established in his mind and 'ear' well before that happened. If he had been totally deaf from birth, he would never have been able to write music, or to have a career as a pianist/musician.
