Hear it, Sign it, Be it: Known Strategies for Successful Music Interpreting

The purpose of this workshop is to help guide interpreters to understanding the meaning of songs and showing how to lyrically produce them using conceptual signs. This workshop will also discuss how I chose signs for certain songs, what different techniques to use, what materials I need to get ready for a concerts, show techniques in tough situations, it will bring up the many controversial theories that some have passed around, also go into divulging some great ideas that I have used to better facilitate the whole music interpreting process, discussing what are the pros and cons of the music realm, and especially how a little rhythm can go along way. 
Speaker Bio - Amber Galloway Gallego
Often praised for her ability to show the connection between lyrics and sounds, Amber’s music interpretations demonstrate the emotional bonds which have driven music lovers to concerts for years. Her interpretations bring the music to life in a way that is not often seen in music interpreting. Deaf audience members have often said they are able to connect to the performance more then they ever had in the past. Ironically it also has delighted and inspired hearing music aficionados. Amber has always loved music and the Deaf community but it was not until she saw the San Antonio Deaf Dance Company and the Wild Zappers perform that she realized that she could hone her interpreting skills to bridge the access gap in the music industry. Her dreams of becoming the first white female rapper went unrealized (outside of her shower) she turned this passion and gift into a specialization in music interpreting; especially hip hop and rap. Deaf people that truly love and adore music often request her because they know she will “Bring it”. Every song and genre is Amber’s favorite! She has over 14 years of interpreting and has a Master’s Degree in ASL/English Interpreting. Her certifications are National Certification RID CT&CI, NIC, Texas BEI Level V, Oral Certified: Comprehensive
