This video speaks for itself, even if there is some controversy surrounding the topic. You cannot help but share in her joy in obtaining more normal hearing.

 Many people are very surprised that music therapists have so much work with people who have hearing impairments. Although individuals with hearing impairments appreciate music in some different ways than those without impairments, many of them still have music preferences. Movement and rhythm are especially strong components when working with clients with hearing impairments. The lady in this video obviously had some hearing before she received her implant, but it seems like there was a dramatic improvement. I wonder how she will react to hearing music for the first time? She will be on the news Monday morning, so maybe we can find out more about her experience. I will link to several news stories about her after the video.
