Description: In working with a deaf flute student, Quiñones discovered not only tips for teaching hearing-impaired musicians, but also ideas that will help all flutists. “The discoveries I made working with Stephenson suggest that tone production is not only about hearing inaccuracies in playing but about feeling them.
