A message from the course director

Dr Simon Procter - Credit - Matthew DixonChoosing the right place to study is an important decision, particularly as there is more than one ethos in the work of music therapy. Your choice now will not only affect the next two years of your life but will underpin the way you approach the work of music therapy. We hope the information here will help you make a decision on whether our approach is right for you. Do attend one of our Open Events, read about former students’ experiences or get in touch with any questions about the Nordoff Robbins approach to training as a music therapist.
