New opportunities from Drake Music for disabled musicians

Disability music charity Drake Music is inviting disabled musicians from the South West of England to apply for paid training opportunities as part of the organisation’s Emergent: A Music Legacy programme.

Emergent: A Music Legacy Trainees will provide paid ‘on the job’ training for six emerging disabled musicians per year. These will be rolled out across the country and offer training and mentoring from established music leaders, including the use of tech in music.

According to the charity, 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.

Emergent: A Music Legacy is a three-year Drake Music programme, funded by Help Musicians UK, in response to the requests Drake Music receives from disabled musicians to widen their portfolio of work opportunities within the music sector.

The six successful applicants will work alongside Drake Music Associate Musicians in a support role on an upcoming participatory project, meet other trainees and take part in training days, receive mentoring and be provided with support to attend music-led seminars and conferences.

The application deadline is 31 July 2017 and full details of the application process are on the Drake Music website.
