Music, Technology and Disability.
Georgina has started working for Drake in 2018 , leading a composition workshop for young people with disabilities.
Drake Music is a national arts charity working across the UK and a leading organisation working in music, disability and technology.
It has bases in Bristol, Manchester and London.
Drake is National Portfolio Organisation for Arts Council England and are also funded through Youth Music.
The organisation has been pioneering the use of assistive music technol-ogy for over 20 years. This enables more people to make music.
In that time, it has developed lots of imaginative methods of teaching, learning, writing and playing music.
Drake specialises in using technology to break down disabling barriers to making music.
What we do
Central to our work is the belief that everyone can fulfill their creative and musical potential, given the right opportunities.
We work where music, disability and technology meet to:
• create opportunities and instruments that make music fully accessi-ble
• increase participation in music-making at all levels
• build an integrated musical culture where disabled and non-disabled musicians work together as equals
Our skilled team has an excellent track record of developing and delivering outreach, training and education initiatives for disabled musicians of all ages and abilities.
We research and develop new accessible musical instruments and tech-nologies to create more ways with, by and for disabled people to make music.
Our artistic development programme supports disabled musicians to pro-gress their work and we offer training and consultancy for teachers, music hubs and other organisations.
