Support from ScottishPower Foundation

Drake Music Scotland is delighted to be one of nine charities across Scotland to receive a share of almost £1.2 million funding from the ScottishPower Foundation in 2021.

Our ‘Figurenotes: Everyone can play!’ programme has been awarded £50,000 from ScottishPower Foundation to help transform music education across Scotland and beyond. The programme will embed the fully inclusive system Figurenotes in the curriculum and will give children and young people access to an easier way to play music.

“We are delighted to be chosen to be one of ScottishPower Foundation’s successful charities in 2021. This support will help us create web-based software for the inclusive music system Figurenotes which will transform access to music education across Scotland. Figurenotes is a fun and simple tool which helps people of all abilities play simple tunes within minutes of picking up an instrument for the first time.”
Thursa Sanderson OBE, Chief Executive
