Wendy Cheng founded the Association of Adult Musicians With Hearing Loss. Now living in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Cheng was first diagnosed with hearing loss not long after her family came to the US from Taiwan, when she was nine years old. She eventually received cochlear implants, learned to play classical piano, then the violin and finally the viola. The Association has grown to more than 200 members around the country.
