Drake Music is a national arts charity working across the UK. We have bases in Bristol, Manchester and London. We are a National Portfolio Organisation for Arts Council England and are also funded through Youth Music.
We are specialists in using technology to break down disabling barriers to making music.
We work where music, disability and technology meet to:
- create opportunities and instruments that make music fully accessible
- increase participation in music-making at all levels
- build an integrated musical culture where disabled and non-disabled musicians work together as equals
Our skilled team has an excellent track record of developing and delivering outreach, training and education initiatives for disabled musicians of all ages and abilities.
We research and develop new accessible musical instruments and technologies to create more ways with, by and for disabled people to make music.
Our artistic development programme supports disabled musicians to progress their work and we offer training and consultancy for teachers, music hubs and other organisations.
Non-disabled people can make music in many ways. We want the same for disabled people. We want equal opportunities for everyone to make music.
Our vision is a world where disabled people have the same range of opportunities, instruments and encouragement, where disabled and non-disabled musicians work together as equals.
