Music should be fun, beautiful, funny, sad, soothing, and exciting – maybe all of those things at the same time. HOPE notes is a music program designed to support cochlear implant and hearing aid users improve music perception and appreciation using original songs, traditional Folk, Blues & Country styles and some familiar tunes played in unexpected ways. Through practice we want you to be able to enjoy music with your cochlear implant.
HOPE notes includes a CD, DVD, and a detailed user guide including lyrics designed to assist and enrich your use of the program. The DVD incorporates both visual and audio cues, while the CD (designed for use on the go) focuses solely on the audio component of the program.
A testimonial from a cochlear implant recipient who enjoyed the HOPE notes program:
The first time I just watched and heard through the DVD. I smiled, hummed with and felt really for the first time ever to be invited into an advanced musical world which was perfectly adapted to me as hard of hearing. Every detail was visualised!
