Visit from Deputy First Minister

John Swinney visits our Figurenotes project

Scottish Government DFM and Education Minister John Swinney MSP visited our Figurenotes project with Castlebrae High School to see for himself how Drake Music Scotland is helping raise confidence and skills for young people with additional support needs.

Joining in our Figurenotes lesson with Castlebrae pupils, John Swinney said “The benefits of the whole process for self confidence and capability of young people people is enormous.  It was a joy to see how much fulfilment the whole experience brought for them.”

The Drake Music Scotland Figurenotes project is supported by the Pupil Equity Fund.  Get in touch if you are a teacher or parent in Scotland and would like your school to use Pupil Equity Funding to provide this opportunity.
