Posted by Taryn Dryfhout on

  . For 30-year-old San Diego urbanite Stephanie Hadfield, there is nothing more enjoyable than collecting Disney. Except for perhaps visiting a Disney Park. However, what’s truly interesting about Stephanie is her passion for music, and for American Sign Language, and how she has come to express this using Disney music.   “Before I start practicing important music that is assigned to me, I use Disney music to do warm-ups whether it’s singing, or violin.  I also work on keeping up with my second language which is American Sign Language, through Disney music as well, because I don’t want to...
