Drake Music are a leading authority on music and disability. They use technology to open up access to music making for disabled peoples at all levels and abilities. This can mean training teachers on inclusion and access or creating opportunities for disabled musicians to collaborate with other artists.
If you haven't come across the organisation before, please allow me to introduce it with a fantastic film. The video shows Gawain, a Drake Music team member, explaining how he uses technology to help children with additional needs to find their voice and express themselves through music.
It's easy to see how much fun the kids have using the microphone with voice effects and also the innovative Sound Beam - an instrument which turns movement into music.
Go to www.drakemusic.org to find out more, whether you are a musician, a teacher, a developer of music technology or are just interested in their innovative, interesting work.
I am really looking forward to finding out more about Drake Music and to sharing their work with you as the project progresses.
