Drake Music Scotland

Play music at home with Figurenotes!

Always wanted to learn to play an instrument but never had the time? Or encourage your child to play but don’t know how? Well now it’s possible for everyone to learn to play music with the easy-to-learn Figurenotes music notation system.

Edinburgh-based music charity Drake Music Scotland has created music resources that can be used at home to help anyone learn to play music. Their Figurenotes team has created and launched resources that are now available for anyone to try, for free. Ideal for families and parents looking for something fun and educational to do with their kids while socially isolating due to the Coronavirus, the Figurenotes resources available on the dedicated Figurenotes website can help your children take the first steps on their musical learning journey.

Figurenotes is a music notation system invented in Finland and introduced to Scotland by Drake Music Scotland. Based on the principle of matching colour and shape, it is an easy way to start learning the basics of music including rhythm, melody and harmony. Learners quickly and easily learn to play tunes they recognize which is highly motivating and encourages the learner to progress on and learn more. Drake Music Scotland uses the system widely in its work with those with disabilities of all ages, and it has proven success for those with learning difficulties or who are on the autism spectrum but it has also been found to be a useful approach for all learners.
