After performing as background music at a faculty art exhibition, I was interviewed about the experience of losing my hearing, getting the Cochlear Implant and being able to study classical guitar.

Yes, what a wonderful story! To go from full deafness, to acting 'like a kid in a candy store', was something I found quite moving, knowing from personal experience that even partial hearing loss can take away most of the joy in playing this exquisite instrument.

Also nice to know that an Australian company has put itself on the world map with these devices.

So all the best for the future, Goldenspots!
