Real deaf hero inspires a story hero

Learning to re-sing after going deaf…
What Mandy Harvey went through to earn Simon Cowell’s heartfelt response in the video below, is exactly what my character Lark will be dealing with in Beat of the Pakiri, book 2-in-progress of my Delfaerune Rhapsody series.
How can Lark be “The Maestra” and write musical spells for the realm, when she’s deaf?
If you have suggestions, processes, or resources to help me make Lark’s experience feel authentic to readers, please comment.
