Accreditation & Assessment

Drake Music aims to increase opportunities for disabled people to be accredited or formally assessed in music at every level. These web-pages are designed to ‘join the dots’ between information that’s scattered throughout the country.

We also are an accredited training centre, offering the Introduction To Music (ITM) accessible music course.

We created ITM in partnership with AptEd (formerly known as OCNSWR – Open College Network South West Region). The course can be accredited at Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 and is designed to be fully inclusive, enabling disabled and non-disabled students to work together.

Introduction To Music combines practical performing and composing activities with learning and assessment resources for Clicker software, which is physically accessible to almost any student.

The course will be relaunched with a new name in 2016, but if you are interested in finding out more before then, please watch the video below and/or contact our Education Manager Jonathan Westrup:
