Drake Music works with Disabled musicians of all ages to explore, compose and perform music.
We use technology in innovative ways to foster creativity, nurture talent, develop new skills and bring together Disabled and non-disabled artists.
We provide previously unimagined access to music-making. We collaborate with Disabled musicians in creating and producing music at all levels, pushing boundaries and breaking new ground artistically and technologically.
Drake Music is a voice for the future, informing and challenging the way people, society and government think about music and disability. We connect across difference, valuing the unique contribution of Disabled artists.

Drake Music have been a key partner in this programme, both in terms of supporting research, a needs analysis and conference, but also offering project delivery, performances and staff training. Their skillsbase and knowledge of the sector is unprecedented.” Charly Richardson – Head of Essex Music Education Hub
