Deborah Posted March 18, 2017 Report Share Posted March 18, 2017 I am contemplating getting a CI because my hearing deteriorated very quickly over the past 2 years. I am concerned however because I am (or was) a professional violinist. All the medical people whom I met said that they have no idea how this implant would affect my musical hearing. The CI's supposedly have very good outcomes for conversation and speech. So my question to everyone is: do you or someone you know who has a CI also play an instrument? Probably not the piano or guitar but perhaps a string instrument or woodwind instrument? I am hoping to be able to continue my teaching and of course go back to attending concerts and listening to music at home. I was forced to resign from my professional orchestra performances but I hope to still enjoy playing my violin for myself and for my students! Thank you.
