Drake Music is looking for disabled musicians for trainee programme

Drake Music is calling for South West-based disabled musicians to apply for its Emergent: Music Legacy Trainees 3-year programme,

Funded by Help Musicians UK, the programme is in response to the needs and requests from disabled musicians wishing to widen their portfolio of work opportunities within the music sector.

The programme provides paid ‘on the job’ training opportunities for six emerging disabled musicians per year, at or near the beginning of their careers, to develop new skills within the facilitation of music making.

“Music-making workshops, as we know, allow people of all ages to learn new skills and discover and explore their own creativity,” said Drake Music.

"For those artists and musicians who facilitate and deliver these workshops, it not only opens up opportunities to expand their work and income, but also acts as a valuable tool to develop their own artistic practice and view their music-making process in new ways.

“This is an opportunity for deaf/disabled musicians at or near the beginning of their careers to develop new skills within the facilitation and teaching of music-making workshops for a variety of participants using a variety of styles and technology.”

Applications must be in by Monday 14th August 2017.
