Viola player Israelle hones her playing ability despite her hearing loss.

Student's life filled with music despite hearing loss

High school freshman Israelle practices the viola up to three hours a day, but she only hears a fraction of the music. She was born with a 73 percent hearing loss in one ear and 50 percent in the other, though hearing aids have allowed her to recover some of that.

"Most kids with hearing loss don’t want to gravitate toward something that is a physical weakness for them. She's somehow overcome that," ESC Teacher Lisette Tedeschi said.
