This woman is a tremendous inspiration to me and probably all percussionists today. She is a Scottish percussionist and she is completely deaf! It may seem ironic that she's giving a lecture on how to truly listen but it's very eye opening to us regular folks who think we hear just perfectly fine. This really shows that you never truly appreciate something until it's gone, and to her she doesn't accept that being deaf means you can't hear. You just have to listen harder and think about how you actually go about hearing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
