Research & Development
Research & Development is a key component of our work. At Drake Music we want to ensure that everyone can make music independently, creating spaces and projects where disabled people have complete control over what they do. To achieve this and to ensure that we keep abreast of current and emerging trends and developments in the fields of music/arts, technology (new & assistive) and disability, we have developed a number of R&D initiatives.
Our R&D programme seeks to increase the number of quality accessible musical instruments by stimulating, supporting and testing the development of new instrument types. We wish to see innovation across all possible solution areas, from adaptations of acoustic instruments to new assistive music technology (AMT) and things we have not yet imagined.
