About us

Drake Music Scotland is the nation’s leading arts organisation providing music making opportunities for people with disabilities. Our expertise in inclusive music technology and specialist teaching methods support people of all ages and a wide range of disabilities to play, learn and compose music independently. More about our technology

Developing out of the Drake Research Project founded in England by Adele Drake in 1988, Drake Music Scotland became a separate charitable organisation (Registered Scottish Charity No. SC026908) in 1997 and since then has worked with over 13,000 children and adults across Scotland.  More about our history.

Our biggest achievements to date include setting up Scotland’s first disabled youth orchestra, the Digital Orchestra, in 2016;  All Join In our flagship education programme for special and mainstream schools; implementation of our acclaimed training and CPD programme; our innovative developments in technology, and the introduction of Figurenotes.
