My sister is a specialist teacher for hearing-impaired primary school
children. As part of her curriculum she includes music and in
particular, nursery rhymes etc for the younger children. She would like
them to be able to sing these at home with and/or for their parents. For
those children with non-hearing-impaired parents, this is not a problem
but many of the children also have hearing-impaired parents. Therefore
she would like to produce a CD of her singing for the children to take
home and use. I would really appreciate any help members can give me as
I am not a professional musician or recording engineer.
1) She will be singing unaccompanied (she is a trained singer and is
perfectly competent to do this) in an alto register to avoid any
distraction for the children from accompaniments etc. Does anyone have
any suggestions about this? (eg effects for recording, effects for the
headphone mix etc)
2) This one's a bit more specialist so you may not be able to help -
hearing impairment often starts with loss of high frequency response.
The obvious thing would seem to be to boost these but I don't know if
that would be correct. Does anyone know?
Any comments on any other aspects of this project would also be more
