Ruth Montgomery

Through her work as a professional musician, Ruth proves that music is not just auditory in nature. Born deaf in a musical family and having studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music for her B.Mus honours degree in music and flute performance, she is a flautist, music teacher and workshop practitioner. As a visionary artist and Clore Leadership fellow, she has also developed professional relationships with arts, music and media organisations locally, nationally and worldwide.

Ruth founded Audiovisability in 2016 as a way to bridge the gap between deaf and hearing artists, primarily by using visual arts and music. Audiovisability is a charity that brings the highest quality of classical and world music to deaf people. They recognise the innate talent of deaf musicians through the forging of partnerships, ground-breaking technology and innovative thinking.
