Eastway Care

Drake Music have been working with Eastway Care to deliver weekly participatory music sessions since 2015. We use iPads, guitars, drums and plenty of hand percussion along with singing and actions to break down disabling barriers to music.

We run sessions with adults at Silvertown and Romford Eastway Care Day centres, working with them and their support staff to develop musical skills, play music together and discover musical interests.

The groups used iPads, Soundbeam, and other pieces of assistive music technology alongside some conventional instruments to write & perform music at the Lord Mayor’s show in London – see photos and listen to the track they created.
