Showcase

Drake Music is constantly engaged in creative music-making by workshop participants, emerging artists and professional musicians. Our work spans the widest range of musical genres, experiences and methods of expression. Here we are showcasing a small selection of that creative output.  It is our aim, via this website to connect musicians and audiences internationally. Please browse our archives and get in touch if you would like to collaborate on future creative projects!

"Drake Music's outstanding approach to breaking down disabling barriers results in fresh, fun and imaginative work that holds and nurtures young artists in everything it does."  Daryl Beeton, Director Kazzum & DM Advocate
