DMLab North

Drake Music is a national arts charity with offices in Bristol, Manchester and London. We work with an experienced, highly-trained team of over forty associate musicians/artists and technologists to deliver our programmes across England.

We have been pioneering the use of assistive music technology to make music accessible for over 20 years. In that time we have developed a wealth of innovative and imaginative approaches to teaching, learning and making music.

We are experts in special educational needs and disability (SEND) music delivery and in using technology to break down disabling barriers to music-making.

Drake Music Innovation Lab North are looking to develop musical instruments, interfaces and tools that allow for expression, precision, dynamics and reliability and where access is intrinsic to the design of the instrument – not just a bolt-on for disabled people. They say:

‘We would love you to be part of this pioneering movement. So if yourself or anyone you know are passionate about assistive music technology or a disabled musician looking for an accessible music technology/instrument solution, do get in touch and/or come along.’
