Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy

Surfing the web. That’s what you end up doing when your intentions were anything but.

I wanted to get an entry posted on Key Changes Music Therapy, a charity I had come across via my son’s schools website. Whilst doing this I couldn’t help but recall a music therapy charity or organisation I new about from my childhood. I think it was as episode of Blue Peter (back in the mid-1970′s,  that featured their work. Lesley Judd , where are you now? But I couldn’t remember the name of it…

A few click from the Key Changes Music therapy website and there it was …Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy. Of course. As soon as  I saw the name I was kicking myself. How could I not remember this name.

Afterall, Nordoff Robbins is the largest charity in the UK specialising in the transformative and communicative power of music. According to their website “We provide and support a range of specialist services that encompass the depth and breadth of music, comprising music therapy services, music and health projects, and community music projects. Nordoff Robbins practitioners provide services in arts, health, education and social care sectors, working with people of all ages who are in need, from the cradle to the grave.”

It a big charity, with branches all over the world, and they do a lot of stuff. Its the rock and pop industy’s charity of choice I would guess as well. Who, in the industry, wouldn’t want the kudos of a Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef awards from the annual bash.

If you want to learn more about what they do here in the UK then check out their website, its slick and professional with lots of information.

They also have a great links page, covering other Nordoff Robbins sites around the globe and other music therapy sites worth a look at.
