We just finished a 5 month study at Johns Hopkins University about CI users and music. There were only 3 kids in the first round, likely due to the weekly commitment of attending class at 8 am in Baltimore every Saturday for almost 5 months, but hopefully the study will continue with other kids.

They tested the kids at the beginning, then had the months of music classes, then did post tests to see how all that training would impact a CI users music abilities. I can't wait to hear the results.

Much like hearing kids though there was a wide range of ability, at least what I observed as a bystander.
