Venue: The Exchange, County Hall, Pitt Street, Preston
Tickets: Book now

We’re inviting teachers, music leaders and musicians  to come and try out some of the technology being used to make music accessible for disabled students.

This free, hands on session on Friday 6 January is an opportunity to try out accessible instruments and music technology with support and advice on hand from the experts. You can come to either session and you don’t have to stay for the full two hours.

Lancashire Music Service (LMS) are working in partnership with Drake Music to undertake an audit of Specialist Schools in Lancashire to consider what accessible instruments, apps and technology would help break down barriers to music making for students. This event follows on from the schools audit from Drake Music, being led by Kris Halpin, where recommendations will be made to LMS regarding provision of accessible instruments and music technology to schools and pupils. This initiative will help make playing and creating music possible for children and young people with physical barriers such as limited movement, supporting their physical, educational and mental wellbeing.

Please note this event is aimed teachers and musicians working with students (rather than the students).
