Here is Hector Tirado’s demonstrative workshop on Proprioceptivity (perceive sound through skin). He’s a deaf professional musician ascribed to the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra since 1990. He learned to perceive the sound and pitch of the double bass and bow by vibration and developed a technique to play through the sense of touch.

The workshop will build awareness on how disabled people can over-come their conditions, children or youngsters can reach higher stages, teachers can address new teaching methods (for deaf people); deaf people can enjoy music. I’m an inspiration and role model for many: disabled and bass players.
