The purpose of this essay is to examine, the notion of music being a part of a deaf individual’s life may seem contradictory, but there is evidence that music is and has been a part of many deaf people’s lives. Music is and has been a part of the Deaf culture, including, but not limited to, Deaf musicians, utilising music to teach speech. The primary purpose of this thesis was to explore the relation between Deaf culture and music and examine the role of music in the deaf culture and to relate the findings to current practices in music education programs for hearing-impaired students historically and presently. We also look at the introduction of sign language interpreters in live vocal music performances as well pre-recorded shows and music videos and also how it is being adopted in the music industry. Secondary purposes of the study were to accumulate data of ways in which the music industry has provided for the Deaf Communities by organising concerts and raves for them.
