Organisation Information:

Drake Music Scotland is the nation's leading arts organisation providing music making opportunities for people with disabilities. Drake's expertise in inclusive music technology and specialist teaching methods supports people of all ages and a wide range of disabilities to play, learn and compose music independently. Developing out of the Drake Research Project founded in England by Adele Drake in 1988, Drake Music Scotland became a separate charitable organisation in 1997 and since then has worked with around 7,000 children and adults across Scotland. Drake Music Scotland has built up a considerable body of specialist knowledge and expertise in the use of adaptive technologies. Participants are supported to take part in musical activities and tuition on an equal basis with others for educational or recreational purposes and continue building their skills to whatever level they aspire. Drake Music Scotland is committed to exploring the possibilities of new technologies in order to find the best way for each individual to have as much independent control of their instrument as possible, to play with expression and develop their creativity.
